Heading back to Texas after her grandmother died since she was named in the will was the last thing Katie expected to be doing, but it might have been something good since she and Liam were having some problems.
her way to the airport, she and Liam were mugged and the only thing
Katie had was a maxed-out credit card, sixteen dollars, and her driver's
license that she managed to keep from the mugger. He took her phone,
her computer, and all of her clothes.

truck, took her to grandmother Margaret's home, and left her to the
memories in the house until Scarlett could come back the next day.
