    She tries not to look up, her cheeks slightly red, embarrassed. A man sits beside her, a hand on her back. He has brown hair and brown eyes. He wears a dark green trench coat with a hood and a mask. He also wear dark brown pants and black boots. "Who's are you", he stared at Vincent. ((The dude is Serena's son. She had him on the Fourth of July. It was unexpected. and you orgot the little star things. '*'))
