and she is comforted.
He sits at his desk his mind is still on the heart of the missing
girl. Could it have been Samantha or was it some other girl who
was stolen away in the night leaving behind maybe a brother or
sister who will always blame themselves for not doing enough to
stop the pain and suffering that she may have endured by
her captive. He looks up and sees his partner, she speaks and
he responds. She reaches out and takes him into her arms.
