That showdown in the woods last year really got to Carmine. She doesn’t want to admit it, but she hasn’t been the same since. She’s been looking over her shoulder, waiting for something to lunge at her from the shadows. But just when she thinks she can’t take it anymore, someone appears who makes it all seem ok.
