What happened in chapter 16 - chapter 20?:
Lorenzo makes Olivia promise that she’ll tell her brothers about Jay showing up and they say goodbye as he leaves for his deployment.
Olivia gets home and calls back a number that she hopes is Margie calling her, but it’s actually Jay’s hotel room. He tells her the whole story with Margie - that she experimenting with drugs, and one night she was so wasted she slept with two other guys, and that’s why he was pushing for an abortion, so she wouldn’t have to find out about it. But Jay told her the whole truth and then she went through with the abortion, and now Margie has lapsed into a deep depression.
After confirming Jay’s story, she tells him to come get her and take her to Margie. Olivia sends Lorenzo a brief text telling him that she’s gone to find Margie, but he hasn’t spoken to her since. Olivia’s sister, Emi, calls Lorenzo to tell him that Olivia lost her phone, but he’s upset and worried that she might potentially be with Jay.
When Olivia finally calls Lorenzo, they get into a huge fight about her being there with Jay, and he dumps her. Olivia is devastated.
Lorenzo returns home from deployment a few days later, only to see Emi at his house. She tells him that Olivia is missing and that she never came home. Lorenzo assumes that she decided to stay with Jay, but her family is convinced, and they convince Lorenzo, that she’d never do something like that to them without telling them. She's missing, and someone has her.
“I will not beg you or surrender my dignity to you or any man ever again.”
- Do you think Lorenzo overreacted when he learned that Olivia went to Dallas with Jay?
