Amber and Deacon were on top of the roof of the building with the police. Amber was in handcuffs, and the police were getting ready to arrest her for Carmen's murder. Deacon decided to tell them what had really happened, while Amber looked on, flabbergasted. Deacon said that Carmen had been his girlfriend and that she had been jealous of Amber. He went on to say that Carmen had caught him in an intimate position with Amber and had started a fight with Amber. He said that the fight had happened in the apartment.
The police decided that they needed to take a look at the apartment, but Deacon asked for a warrant. The policeman said that he could easily get a warrant, but he would have to arrest Amber in the meantime. Deacon decided let them have a look at the apartment, which was in shambles. He described the fight and then said that Carmen had gone to the roof to think as she usually did. He said that she had been drunk and had probably fallen off.
The police asked Amber if things had really happened that way, and she finally concurred with Deacon's story. The police talked to the bartender, who confirmed that Carmen had been drinking and had been very jealous of Amber. The officers uncuffed Amber but told her and Deacon that if they found out that anything had happened differently, both Deacon and Amber would be in a lot of trouble. Amber thanked Deacon for what he had done for her, and he immediately told her that he had done it for his son because a child needed its mother. He told Amber that he really had loved Carmen, and Amber comforted him.
