Jessamyn "Jess" Bailey
"It's just..." Jess chewed her lip. In some situations, making things obvious may not be a problem, but cases like this were surely exceptions. Not for the first time, she wished she could be as good at hiding things as Roxy was - if that were the case, the anchor may be in a better position right now. "I know. Most of the time, yeah," she whispered, looking out for anyone who might overhear. "But I take it he's not going to react well." That was an understatement, if Roxy's fear of her father was anything to go by.
Of course, the fact that Roxy wasn't mad at her made it clear there truly was no good outcome. Reginald had his ways of figuring out the truth. All they could do now was get through the rest of the day, and try to think of a way out before he set them their next task, whatever that would be. Jess didn't want to think about it, or about how Reginald would take out his anger on both of them.
