In Devon’s house, Abby tells Devon she was overcome with worry about Chance and when he called, he started shouting and the line went dead. He hasn’t called since. Devon tries to reassure her, but she’s gone to that dark place. She won’t cry. He tells her she can if she wants. He brings out a massive envelope from chance. “Give Abby this when you think she needs it most,” it reads in black marker. Chance sent it weeks ago. He told Devon that he’s counting the days down until their baby is born and to pass this down when he thinks Abby needs it most. She’s moved and opens it. It’s one of his old sweatshirts. There’s another note. “Wear this and feel me wrapped around you. There’s no place I’d rather be. Love Chance.” She breathes it in and snuggles it. She recalls wearing it when they ice-skated together. Devon and Abby dine and he gives her a mixed tape of sorts and she thanks him for everything.
