Jack Rory was tired.
So tired, he couldn’t even finish his fifth strawberry daiquiri. And strawberry daiquiris were his favorite!
The nice lady behind the bar gently shook him awake.
She suggested he might be happier somewhere else.
Jack Rory appreciated her thoughtfulness. He decided to take a drive to clear his head.
He hadn’t gone very far, when he suddenly heard the sound of a siren.
Woooo-wooooo-woooooo… Why, it was Officer Good Guy!
“Hello, Jack Rory!” Officer Good Guy said.
“Hi there, Officer!” Jack Rory replied.
Officer Good Guy wanted to play some games with Jack Rory. First he had Jack Rory walk in a straight line. Then he had him say the alphabet backwards. Jack Rory thought it was very funny!
Then Officer Good Guy invited Jack Rory to take a personal tour of the local jail. Of course Jack Rory accepted!
A few hours passed. Jack Rory started to wonder when Officer Good Guy was coming back. He was feeling a little lonely.
Then something magical happened!
A familiar voice came from the cell across the way.
“Jack Rory? Could it be you?!”
It was Destiny!
Jack Rory was so happy to see her!
Destiny had had an adventure! She explained to Jack Rory that she had been on the street, walking with her friend, John.
Suddenly, Officer Good Guy showed up and accused her of “turning tricks!”
Turning tricks? Jack Rory was a little confused.
He had lots of questions for Destiny. But before he had a chance to ask them….
It was Prison Warden Louis! He had good news for Jack Rory!
Jack Rory was astonished! He couldn’t believe his eyes! There, standing next to Prison Warden Louis was Karen!
Jack Rory wasn’t finished talking to Destiny! But Karen said it was time to go.
Jack Rory looked back into Destiny’s eyes. He was pretty sure they were both thinking the same thing.
“Good friends don’t say goodbye. They say, ‘See you later.'”
