Time to Run & Hide!

Later Smurf comes to know that Adrian has been talking to the cops and she wants revenge. Deran is emotionally involved with Adrian and tries his best to help him escape from the country so that he can save his life. He helps Adrian who is very deeply involved with Deran and knows that their relationship has been very strong and passionate. With Deran’s help, Adrian escapes from the USA and goes to Indonesia for several reasons. One is that they don’t have an extradition treaty with the USA yet and also because it is very good for surfing which has always been a passion for Adrian. When Adrian leaves he has mixed feelings for Deran and tells him that though he will always love him Deran is probably the worst thing that ever happened to him in his life.
