"Alright we need to figure out how we are going to thirty thousand by Monday."

Kira sighs "I have the money but I was saving it for my mom when she comes back so she didn't have work."

"Kira, we can earn your mom some money later."

"What if she comes back soon?"

"Have you spoken with her lately?"

"No but I'm not giving up on her. I didn't talk to you after you left and you came back."

"Ok then we will find another way to earn money."

"Are you still a CFO?"

"I am. I was allowed temporary leave to get better but I'm ready to go back."

"And I have a veterinarian position with Deaton."

"You don't have to help seriously. You didn't ask for the money and I don't want you giving Robert one cent."

"The money was for your dad not some trivial things so I want to help."

"Maybe I should explain some things. About my dad and Robert..."

"You don't have to."

"No I want to. It started in February, my dad passed out one day at a family event and we took him to the hospital and that's when the doctor told us something was wrong. So my dad got a few tests and we had to wait a month at first they didn't tell me. They wanted to spare my feelings and then one day I caught him coughing up blood and he...told...he told me..." Kira stutters.

Scott wraps his arms around her "I'm sorry. I'm sorry I wasn't here when you needed me."

"You're here now."

"So what happened to your mom?"

"She hasn't spoken to me since the funeral apparently I'm her constant reminder of my dad but I understand."

"I don't understand it you need her too."

"She has loss two loves I couldn't imagine that."

"Me neither I just don't want you hurting."

"I'll be okay I'm an excellent bouncer back if you haven't noticed."

"I have noticed. I notice a lot of things about you other people wouldn't know."


"You're very perceptive of other people and careful with your body language."

"Really? I could say the same about you."

"I think I'm easier to read than you."

"To who? Most people who meet you don't know you."

"The pack does."

"I think the people you let in know you but you're quiet about your own pain."

"You always know what I'm thinking or feeling so I can't be that hard to read."

"That's because you trust me if I was one of your distant friends like Brett, I wouldn't know when you need a break."

"Or you wouldn't care."

"You're the superhero of course they don't care; you have to be perfect all the time."

"Not with you in fact you love me in spite of my imperfections."

"You mean how you ditch me all the time."


Kira kisses his cheek "I was kidding."

"Oh that's funny making me feel bad."

"It is."

Scott picks up Kira "No this is funny."

"Put me down." 


"Because you shouldn't start things you can't finish."

"What do you mean?"

"We started something earlier but we were interrupted."

"Another thing I know that no one else knows you are bad I mean worse than me."

"I am not."

"You are."

"Whatever. Are we going to finish what we started or what?"
