After the emotional separation of her and AJ, she vowed to not need people again. She didn't want anyone to protect her and she didn't need anyone to keep her safe. Going solo for almost a year, she came across a group that she soon became a part of. She felt kind of attached to the leaders nephew, she tried her best to keep her distance from him and not to think of the heartbreak she would go through once she lost him. Even after all the pep talks she gave herself in her mind, he had a way of convincing her that she needed him to survive.
