Jocelyn was a shy girl who did not make new friends easily. Her free time was spent alone, often reading books or writing in her journal. One day a mysterious package arrived, addressed to her, with no return address. | Inside the package was a cellphone with a message that says "Why do you always look so lonely?". Jocelyn stared at the message not knowing what she should do. | She called her ex-boyfriend Pistol Peter, a fading matinee idol of advancing years, once famous but now confined to work in a call-centre with various failures and ne'er do wells. She said "I shan't tell you again, keep out of my life, you fiend!" | As well as Jocelyn was hurt and angered by Pistol Pete she realized in this moment that he meant the best for her.
