Grim's phone rang. "Hello? Jeanie? Jeans?"
“What's going on?”
Grim put his fingers to his lips and let Kent listen in. "Shawn Paul, please stop. It isn't you. Why are you doing this?"
"You know damn well why Jeanie. You shouldn't have pretended to be my friend, and now I'm going to have to teach you a lesson."
Kent texted Tiger to tell him to meet them at Shawn Paul's, and they hurried off. "How are we going to get into his house, though?" Tiger asked.
"Wait. The door is open.
Grim peeked in and saw Shawn Paul was in Jeanie's face. It was almost as if he was going to kiss her, and Jeanie looked scared. Grim kicked the door open.
"Get off her, you creep!" Grim shouted, startling Shawn Paul, making him let go.
Jeanie ran over to Tiger. "Tiger, get her out of here! I don't want Jeanie to see this," Tiger gently pushed Jeanie out of the house.
Once they left, Grim punched Shawn Paul in the mouth. "Touch Jeanie again, and I will make damn sure you regret it."
“Oh? Do you think you scare me?” Shawn Paul laughed.
“I should scare you.”
"Well, you don't, and so you know, Jeanie deserved what was about to happen to her."
Grim punched him in the face again. "And what was about to happen to her? Stay away from Jeanie!"
"Come on, let's go. That's enough. It's not worth it, Grim."
Jeanie sobbed into Tiger's arms. “I was so stupid.”
"No, don't stay that. Jeanie, look at me. It was not your fault. You were so clever calling Grim like that without Shawn Paul noticing."
"I was so scared. Tiger, will you take me home?"
“Are you sure?”
Kent opened the door to his office and turned on the lights. “Lydia, what are you still doing here?”
"I- thinking. Yes, in the dark. Is everything okay with Grim and his friend?"
"Yes, they're fine. I don't want to go into any details."
"There's something you're not telling me, Kent."
“You mean like how you didn't tell me you were quitting?”
"I wanted to, Kent. You have to believe me, but. I just."
“You just what? Didn't think this would hurt me? Do you believe I won't come after you?”
"I'm asking you not to, Kent."
"Lydia... That's it then for us?"
"You know how I feel about you, but if I stay, I'll just be holding you back. It's hard for me, too." Lydia kissed Kent's cheek and walked out of his office.
