Rating: 5/5

The twentysomething young man rests his head on his girlfriend’s shoulder and holds her hand. She says she’ll call insurance tomorrow and try to find a facility for him. He shakes his head, saying he can’t believe he almost killed someone. He tells her he doesn’t want to be a monster. He has to stop. She holds him, saying an angel was watching out for him.

Musgraves smiles as she sits on the floor beside them. She was the one who touched the brakes at the last minute, saving the little girl’s life. She glanced over to see the twentysomething man, crying as he ran out of the car and checked on the little girl. She kissed the little girl on the forehead and watch the twentysomething man spend the night in jail. He believed he was a lost cause and a monster. She sat by him all night, soothing him as he stared at the floor.

The twentysomething hugs his girlfriend at the facility. She says she’ll visit him. Musgraves follows him inside and puts her hand on his shoulders as he signs in. She tells them she’ll be with him for a few more days and that he can do it. Walking into the parking lot, she sees a seventysomething woman hold onto her chest as she sits on a bench. Musgraves runs over to her.
