Summary Edit

The chapter opens up on May 10, 2014 at 15:17:56 in Los Angeles, California. Anwar is driving around the area in an attempt to find Xanther. He has tracked her as best as he could but traffic has caused him to lose sight of her. He can still barely see what's in front of him due to the rain. He begins to panic and drive increasingly recklessly, going over sidewalks to cut through traffic. He looks at the passenger's seat and realizes that Xanther left behind her orange raincoat, which only makes him panic more. He is still unsure of why Xanther ran out of the car in the first place.

A string of thoughts and memories race through Anwar's mind as he continues his search. Eventually, these thoughts are cut off by a strange feeling. He begins to feel as if he is going to have a stroke. He ignores it and decides to speed up even more. The passenger's side door is still wide open and rain has been soaking the inside of the car. He thinks he can see Xanther so he cuts through traffic again and runs a stop sign to pull up, but it turns out to not be her. He continues following the roads again until he hears something. He is able to hear Xanther calling out to him when she spots the car. Anwar stops driving and Xanther runs into the car. Her arms are cut up and bleeding. She is holding a small animal, and she frantically asks Anwar to save the animal's life. At this point the chapter seems to cut off, or be paused, by the Narcons. They want to speak directly to the reader.

The chapter ends on May 10, 2014 at 15:21:07.
