When the game starts, Lauren and Joey have just come back to her apartment, and she is steaming mad about something. She stomps out to smoke on her balcony, and ... well, just stands there smoking. What now?
Maybe Joey can help. Did you notice that if you pull down the menu, you can switch to Joey's point of view?
Click on the J in the menu to control Joey, then float to the balcony and talk to Lauren. So why is she so mad?
Any path you choose will eventually talk her back into the apartment. It's time to get back to work.
