There was a scary moment in the playground when Jack thought the tramp was following him. It was Catherine.

“Thanks for bringing my homework.”

“It seemed the right thing to do,” she replied.

“Well, it was nice, especially after everything that's happened.”

Jack stopped. He had a stupid urge to tell Catherine everything. Even though the last thing he needed was anyone thinking he was weirder than they already thought he was.
