A Man of Means

A Man of Means

After finding a man who had been attacked by a robber on the street, Meredith carries him into the hospital. But the man's younger brother, Rey, runs in half-cocked after hearing the news and, seeing Meredith dressed for a party, assumes she's a prostitute and accuses her of having had some part in the assault. Though random assaults involving criminals and prostitutes have been happening in the area recently, is that any way to treat your brother's savior? Frustrated and resentful, Meredith leaves the hospital room, but Rey appears at her house the next day, completely changed from the day before. Now meek and polite, he brings her an astonishing offer!
