102-A | Jennifer

As Jennifer stood in the bathroom looking at the man in whose house she found herself.  She quickly looked down at the sink and gripping it my the sides asked the very honest question.

“What happened last night?” She said with a bit of timidity.  She was fearful not only of the situation but also fearful to learn what had happened.  All she remembered was bits and pieces but no clear path from the bar to this place.
