“Come on, let’s get out of here”, Tomas says to Billy as they walk out of the house. Later, more cops arrive with a team of paramedics to the house.
One of the paramedics said to Tomas, “How could you kill the best doctor in town”!
“I had to do what I had to do” replied Tomas. The acquiescence rose over the paramedic, so he nodded and headed into the house. Then, Tomas looks at Billy and says, “How would you like to be my son”. Billy excitedly answers yes and they walk off together in the sunset.
