Homeless Teen Stalks Family Man Who Showed Her Kindness
Ben (Will Pounder), a family man, returns home from an outing. He parks in his dark garage and climbs out of his car, chatting with his wife on his phone. Unbeknownst to him, as he says ‘I love you’ and hangs up, someone is lurking in the shadows.
When he turns on the lights, he’s startled to see Cassie (Lisey Sweet) there, dressed in a cap and baggy hoodie. Ben goes on the defensive, thinking that he’s being mugged in his own home, but she insists that he knows her. She’s Cassie, a homeless teen he’s shared sandwiches with before! She was so used to seeing him around when she was on the streets that when he stopped showing up, she panicked. She just wanted to make sure he was okay!
Although Ben’s freaked out at first, he assures her that he’s perfectly fine. Seeing how shaken she is, he takes pity on Cassie and invites her inside to get washed up. Obviously, she can’t stay with him, but he’ll do what he can to help her.
Cassie is smitten with him. She’s drawn to his kindness, wanting nothing but affection from him, but she doesn’t know how to properly show it. She comes on too strong and weirds Ben out, causing him to deny her every advance. Confused and desperate for human contact, she begins undressing, trying to get him to look at her naked skin. Ben is again freaked out, which only confuses Cassie even more. Doesn’t he WANT to have sex with her? Otherwise, why would he have been so kind to her?
Ben is appalled — he’s a family man who loves his wife very much! Not every guy wants to take advantage of her. But when Cassie refuses to leave and comes onto him stronger than before, Ben is conflicted. If he gives in this one time, maybe she’ll get out of his life and never come back…
