    "What makes you think you can trust me?" Aiden said. Easter gazed at him steely.

    Easter didn't know what to say. "He's not as bad as you think-"

    "Not as bad as I think? Not as bad as I think? He shot me twice and tried to kill me!" Aiden shouted, causing Easter to flinch.

    "I know!" Easter said, catching him off guard. "I know. But he's my brother, and I will die to save him any day."

    "Look, Aiden," Easter said. "I don't hate you. I just...can't be on your side. I'll do what I can."

    He considered her for a moment, then handed her a business card. "You don't seem so bad. Maybe we can work things out?"

    Easter accepted the card, offering her own to him. "Maybe. I'd like to fix this whole mess."
