“Kate?”

“Hey. Are you – can you talk?”

“It’s two in the morning, Kate. What’s wrong?”

“I just needed to talk to someone. But you’re right. I shouldn’t have – “

“Don’t be silly. What’s up?”

“Can you come outside? I’m outside.”

“Of my house?”

“…yeah.”

“This was so stupid. I’m going to go.”

“Please, don’t leave.” He sat down beside her. “Talk to me.”
