Her dad left the family when she was young and she just thought it was normal for him to not be around. When she started to go to school, she would see the other kids with their dad's and it got her thinking about her own dad and what it would be like to know him. Loren talks about writing him letters, telling him about her day-to-day life and asking him questions, like if he ever thought of her. The letters eventually turned into poems, which turned into lyrics. She learned music so she could 'get it all out of there'. Eddie asks her why she doesn't want to tell her mom about that.

Eddie tells her that he thinks the real story is very touching and it explains a lot about her music.

Loren accepts, but Nora declines. Loren goes to change and Nora has a talk with Eddie. She asks him not to let Loren fall in love with him then pull the rug out from under her.

Loren searches for a dress to wear to MK when Nora walks in with a fancy black dress she wore to a cousin's wedding. Loren asks if that means Nora isn't opposed to her dating Eddie.
