Rebel returned from the Hospital a few hours later unbelievably he’d escaped the incident with only cuts and bruises. He was the first to enter the Basement to talk to Kalani . He reminded Kalani what had taken place and what the next course of action would be.
Kalani had no memory of the incident but knew his grandfather would never concoct a story like that he instantly felt remorseful and hated himself for hurting his grandfather. He accepted that he would be living in the basement until the Stersim was out of his system.
He was given one of his aunt Rainne’s Easels and some paints to help ease his boredom also a yoga mat and Whale sounds cd to help him to learn to control and suppress his anger.
Going cold turkey was hard but not as hard as having to live with himself after inflicting so much hurt and pain on the people he loved more than anything in the world.
