"Jared, so you're telling us that Joey pushed you into your home, held you hostage, and cut you whenever you screamed? Then tried to sexually assault you and Pierce saved you?" Copper asks.
"Yes, Mr. Copper."
"Joey…this is unlike you. We'll be keeping you longer. Jared, Pierce, you're free to go." Booker says, opening the door.
"I'm sorry for this, Pierce." I say, as we walk out of the Police Station.
"It's alright…" he says lowly. We walk back to his house.
"I'm just going to go." I say, nodding. I turn away, and my nose starts pinching, like I'm about to cry. A few minutes later, I bump into Serane.
"Oh, hello. Your name's Jared?" she asks.
"Yep." I respond.
"You look down…"
"Come with me, Jared." She says, grabbing my hand. She drags me to her house. As we walk in, I see Rosie, sitting on a bed with a tea set next to her. Serane nudges me to sit next to Rosie, who hands me a warm cup of tea.
"We thought that everything you went through…you'd want some downtime away from all the madness." Serane says, closing the door. I shrug and sip the tea.
"So," Rosie says, getting closer to me, "Jared." I nod and she grabs my empty hand, "summer's ending soon, autumn is coming near huh?"
"Uh, yeah!" I say, a bit confused. Serane pulls me aside.
"Alright, look. Rosie told me she think you're cute." She explains.
"But…I have a girlfriend in another town." I say shifty. She nods, and opens the door for me. As I walk out, I see Walker and Daisy outside, sitting on the beach shore. I walk up a bit, and they gesture me to sit down.
"Boy, this town is crazy." I say, looking at the two holding hands.
"Trust us, we know. We live in the next town over. We've been coming here for over a year now though. Vangade's beach is just so beautiful." Walker says, chuckling. I look out to the sky, and put my head down.
"So, Jared. Pierce has told me a lot about you. He seems to be very fond of you." Daisy says smiling at me pleasantly.
"Really?" I say, lifting my head and smiling brightly. She simply nods.
"I gotta go. See you two later!" I say, happily and excited.
"What a nice boy, huh Walker?" Daisy asks.
"Sure is. I can't wait for their wedding!" Walker chuckles, squeezing his girlfriend's hand.
"I can't wait until Pierce actually tells him…" Daisy says, as she lays her head on Walker's chest.
