It was late.
After fumbling inside the Garmon Mines all afternoon, Molly just had to go for a walk at the beach to take in the fresh air. She needed it after inhaling so much strange gases in there. She wondered if she should’ve dropped by the Clinic, but they were probably closed by this hour, and the fresh air was already making her feel better.
She stretched her arms over her head as she breathed in the salty air. The sound of the waves were almost hypnotic, but they made her feel a bit lonely. Maybe she should’ve invited Chase along—She caught herself and blushed, shaking her head frantically at the thought. ‘That was corny…’ Even if no one was around to hear her, she was still glad she hadn’t said it out loud. Selena and Kasey would probably tease her to no end. Besides, even if she did invite him, he was probably still at work anyway. That thought made her feel lonelier, and she wrapped her arms around herself.
Tiring of the view, she turned around to head back home when she saw someone walking down the path at the corner of her eye.
