"Mark will be watching you for my own peace of mind and he can keep me updated when you can't get to the phone. I know you will be staying with Joe Landen and his family and that's best for right now seeing as how you are being watched by the cops." "They are clueless and don't believe that I killed anyone but how long do you think I'm going to have to stay with Joe and his family?" "A few weeks just to let everything blow over I already have a plan to get the cops off your back" "ok sir I'll do what I have to do…. I have to go I'll call you when I get a chance.

That night Pepper tossed and turned and couldn't fall asleep she wasn't worried about tomorrow meeting new people didn't scare her not much did. After two hours of tossing and turning she got out of bed and thought about making a break for it but with the cops watching her she couldn't lead them to Tom. So she started to work out the only thing she could do to keep her mind busy.

Five hours later…

"Pepper it's time to get up… there's breakfast in the lobby I'll be down there waiting for you. Joe say's as he knocks on the door and Pepper opens her eyes and blinks a few times remembering where she's at and what all has taken place.

"Ok Pepper today is day one" she puts on the clothes a pair of jeans and a t-shirt that Haley gave her a long with socks and her black teeny shoes and pulls her long hair up into a high pony tail. As she gets off the elevator and walks into the lobby she sees Joe sitting at a table he stands up as she walks up to him. "Good morning how did you sleep?" "Good sir…" the air goes silent for a few minutes "that's good so why don't we get some breakfast and then we can be leaving and heading home" Pepper nods and they get in line at the hotel breakfast buffet.
