"One more outburst from you, Tyler and I will place you on suspension. Understand?" Tyler looked over to Autumn, but she shrugged.

"Yes, I love my job, but it's not worth getting into trouble over. I'm sorry for wasting your time today. " Autumn got up and ran outside. Tyler ran after Autumn, but not before hurling insults at them.
“What the hell was that about?” Tyler confronted Autumn once he caught up to her. Autumn sighed.
"You still don't get it, do you?"
“They have proof! There's no way I'm getting my job.”
"Doctored proof, Autumn! Doctored proof. You have to start standing up for yourself. I know it's a scary thing, but I know you have it in you."

"Please fight. You are damn good at your job. It's not fair. Krista did not get that job fair and square! You did. Please say you'll continue to fight. " Autumn sobbed into Tyler's chest while he stroked her hair.
