"Lara please don't leave me here" said Dean.

"I have to Dean what choice do I have" said Lara through tears.

"god don't you understand without you rescue is over, you're the only hope we have please don't go' said Dean.

"I'm sorry but I can't stay" said Lara.

Michelle suddenly appeared around the corner:

"Well guess what, you have to, your resignation isn't effective for another six weeks so until then you're stuck with us". She said.

"Don't look at me like that dean" Lara said seeing the look of satisfaction on his face. "I guess I'll have to stay for know"

6.00am the next day at the station house:

"We've got a kid stuck on a roof in Campbelltown" yelled Vince.

"Were on it Vince" said dean tapping Lara on the shoulder.

"Okay Lachie you go too" said Vince.

"Right" said Lachie sleepily.

In the patrol:

"How do you manage to get stuck on a roof" said Lachie.

"God knows" said dean.

"What's up with you Lara" Lachie said

"What, oh nothing" she said staring into space. "Nothing".

Dean and Lachie exchanged looks and dean shrugged his shoulders.

"I don't know what her problem is" said dean.

At the scene:

"Alright so here's the plan- Lara and I will go inside and try to find another way onto the roof, Lachie you stay down here and try to calm the kid down" said dean in his usual team leader way.

As they ran into the building Dean decided this would be the best time to talk to Lara.

"So Lara"

"Look dean if you're gonna try to convince me to stay just forget about it" she said fighting off tears that had become so common in the past few days.

"But Lara this is rescue it's what your made for do you really want to give that up" he said.

"Listen dean I can't handle rescue anymore it's just too hard" Lara said on the verge of tears.

"What happened to you, you're not the Lara I remember" he said.

"Your right, I'm not, now are you satisfied" said Lara getting angry.

"No just disappointed" said dean under his breath.

"You think you can just tell me how to live my life, you don't even know what I've been through" Lara yelled.

"I would if you'd just tell me "dean yelled back.

"Forget it" Lara yelled again.

"Fine" dean yelled.

They completed the rescue in almost silence and returned to base.

Back at rescue base the trio discovered a car that wasn't there when they left.

"I would like to introduce you all to my son, Sam" said Vince.

"Hi, Sam" said the team in unison.

"Hi" Sam said quietly.

"Sam has just finished his HSC and is going to be working here until he decides what the hell he's gonna do with his life" said Vince.

"Dad I know what I'm gonna do with my life but you won't let me" Sam said.

"Sam you're not drag racing" Vince said.

The whole team laughed except Lara who was not in a good mood thanks to deans questioning.

The rest of the day was pretty quiet with no call outs and at 5pm the team went to the local pub to welcome their newest member.
