One Starry Night

Well, I knew now that it was going to be just Landon and I from now on, there would be no shortage of chances to talk about the newest message.  At this point, I was more annoyed than anything, and I just wanted to get it over with.  I was so tired of all of this outside foolishness effecting us.  I mean maybe, just maybe, I could be the actual catalyst in at lease ONE of these scenarios?!  It didn't take Tre long to figure out he was blocked, and I received a few other choice messages from random numbers, one of which demanded answers...
