One day whilst heading to the lab, Sarah's car broke down. Whilst attempting to fix it, she was happened upon by biker, Deacon St. John. After some playful banter, he offered her a lift which she accepted. After nearly being hit by a pickup truck, Sarah was called by her lab, and informed them of her car breaking down. Asking for a tow truck. She and Deacon head back to her car, only to find the pickup truck that nearly hit them, the crew of which are stripping the car. While Deacon fights the crew, Sarah tries to call the police, but cannot get a signal. Looking through Deacon's saddle bag, she finds his gun, deciding to fire off a warning shot, which scares off the pickup truck's crew. Sarah begins to panic having never fired a gun before. Deacon thanks Sarah and tells her he will stay with her until the tow truck arrives.
