At first I couldn’t even manage to comprehend what she was telling me and then slowly I began to piece it together. She could, and gladly would, lead Hank’s army when I wanted to do anything but.

Marcie ended up following me and said she wanted to talk. She told me about a summer fling she had with this guy, Patch, and told me that I had his necklace that he was planning on giving Marcie and she wanted it back.
