Joe

If the events of the past few months had taught Joe anything, it was that you can’t hold on to the past. He knew it was time to get on with his life, and that meant making some changes. While he waited to hear back from Zoey, he’d decided to pack up some of Clara’s old things and give them away. He began with her clothes by folding and packing them into…

Under different circumstances he would have switched the station, but he wasn’t in a position to argue, so he just sat there stoically and ground his…

Joe

Sitting in a coffee shop, Joe examined his watch and frowned. The gold monstrosity had been a retirement gift from the material sciences department when he had worked at the university.

Sam

It had been two weeks since his encounter with Jacob Cutter and that woman, Hope, and Sam still couldn’t explain what had gotten into him.

Amanda

When Penelope had run after that couple and their son, Sarah had explained about what each of them could do. She didn’t remember Penelope actually disappearing.
