It was Devan that broke the embrace and pulled away. "I'm sorry, Julie. You're very vulnerable. I've taken advantage of you. Like I said, I almost didn't come tonight. When I saw you and realized who you were, I knew I wanted you. It's wrong. I know it is. We're friends, but--"

"Maybe I want a one-night stand. Maybe I just need to be special to someone for a little while. Whatever it is, I wouldn't blame you if you left right now. I really don't know what's come over me, but I want you to stay with me tonight."
"Do you mean it?"
"Yes. Just for tonight, I need to be loved. Please stay. I'll give you the garage door opener so you can get your car off the street. There's room for two cars in there."
