“I understand that, Quinn. I’m not saying it’s the right thing to do necessarily but it’s just something to think about. Those guys are going to be out there regardless because Brittany’s too afraid to say anything. We’re not sweeping anything under the rug, we’d be giving her peace.” He didn’t mean to upset Quinn, he just really loved Brittany too. She had ‘aliens’ living in her brain unnecessarily.
Quinn took a deep breath. “Not for long,” she replied after taking a moment to think. “We finally broke through. We’re… we’re telling her parents this summer,” she confessed. “She doesn’t want them to hurt anyone else, and we’ve gone quiet for long enough. We’re going to tell her parents, and we’re finally taking action.” She sighed and took another sip of her wine. “If anything like that happened to me, I wouldn’t want to go my whole life having forgotten it. I’d want to do something about it.”
