What Happened

After looking into it, Remy discovered that he was too late to enroll for the semester. He was devastated. How would he ever get in contact with the couple now? He felt fated to find them, but if they were thousands of miles apart, it seemed pretty hopeless.

He heard the grating noise of the garage door and knew that his dad must've just gotten home from work. He rushed down the stairs to him so quickly that they ended up opening the door at the same time.

"Woah!" He laughed. "What's got you in such a hurry?"
