She then turns to Dusty and tells him that she has dreamed of this moment every single night for so long, and that she has literally ached for him. He travels the short distance between them and kisses her passionately. They confess their love for each other. Sitting on her bed, Jen seriously asks Dusty about Meg. He tells her that it is over, but she believes that what she saw between the two of them was real.. Dusty tells her that it was real, but in a different way. He and Meg have known each other for more than half of their lives; she gets him. He tells Jen that Meg was in a different place than him. He thought that in time he would be able to get there. He looks at Jen and tells her that he is in love with her and that she makes him want things that he has never thought about before her.

When she returns, he is there waiting for her on the bed. He looks at her with so much love in his eyes. Jen tells Dusty that she needs to go find Meg and look her in the eye.

Meg covers her mouth in shock as Paul pulls himself over the ledge and falls on his back, gasping for air and clearly in pain. She rushes over to him and kneels beside him. She asks him who did this to him, and he tells her that it was hunters. Meg instinctively wants to take him to the hospital, but Paul is adamant that he does not want to go. In between painful moans and groans, he manages to tell Meg that there is a cabin that he saw on the drive up there that is not too far away. Reluctantly, Meg helps Paul to the cabin. With him lying in the bed, she starts a fire in order to warm him up. She looks at him suspiciously and tells him that he is lucky that those hunters used a small hand gun instead of a rifle. She once again tries to get him to realize that he needs medical attention. She tells him that he is lucky that the bullet went straight through and that it didnt touch any major organs, but he will need a blood transfusion, X-rays and antibiotics. Paul remains stubborn and insists that she, as a nurse, should be able to get access to all of these things. Meg bluffs that she should just leave him there, and finally she takes off and doesnt tell Paul where she is going.
Jen arrives at the hospital and talks with a nurse about Megs schedule. The nurse tells her that Meg wont be in for a couple of hours. Jen sighs loudly and turns to leave. At the same moment, Meg is quickly rounding the corner. She stops when she sees Jen, and the two women look at each other. Jen eyes Meg accusingly.
