"Well, I don't think we'll hold you. We'll be in touch though if we come across anything substantial. You're free to go." The detective opened the door and let in an officer who came to take Ethan away. "Don't leave town though, if you know what I mean."
Carth and Jake arrived at a motel and rented a room for the night. There was a small phone in the room and Carth used it to call up one of his friends. They said hello and a few casual topics of conversation before Carth mentioned the reason for the call, "I need you to give Ethan a message, he's being held at the police station, tell him to call us or call us back if he's going to be held there long." Carth's friend agreed to the favor and they hung up. "Okay, Jake, I guess we just wait."
