Someone knocked on the door, and someone else answered.

"John Doe?"

"Yes."

"I'm Jarod. Jarod... Rainier."

"As in Mount Rainier?"

"As a matter of fact, yes. Mister Doe, I've heard a lot about you," Jarod said, holding up several newspaper clippings to illustrate his point. "Lieutenant Avery was kind enough to tell me where to find you. I... have a request."

"Go on."

"I want you to teach me."

"Teach you what?"

Jarod smiled.

"Everything."
