The Fifth Rule Week #5: Summarizer

The 32nd chapters begin with Leeza, Bigger, and Jink arriving at the Halifax Public Garden. They were looking for Reef, who was previously there. The group did not have any look finding Reef. Leeza then notices a big hole in the ground, where a rock used to sit. Leeza concludes that Reef has a rock and is going to attack Roland Decker with it.

Chapter 33 shows Reef entering the elevator of Roland’s workplace. At first he did not know how to find Roland Decker. He then remembers him saying that he was a financial analyst for a firm. Reef then found that firm in the phone book. As he was going up the elevator, he kept thinking about beating Roland Decker up. He then goes into the washroom.

In the next chapter, Bigger receives a phone call from Matheson that says that North Hills isn’t going to be shut down. Leeza then realizes that doesn’t change a thing if Reef is going to go through with his plan of assaulting Decker. The three then hop into Jink’s car, but the car has trouble starting. Leeza then runs, leaving the two men in the car.

As Reef exits the bathroom he curses because he forgot his backpack in the garden. He then stands in front of the elevator patiently waiting, but the elevator is at the first floor. Reef then gets impatient and follows a map on foot.

In chapter 36, Leeza arrives at the building Reef and Decker are in. She is waiting for the elevators after one had just left without her. As she was waiting, she overheard a man tell a security guard that there was a male with a police record in the elevator. The man also told her that he was drunk and pissed. She then sprints towards the stairs hoping that isn’t too late.

Reef is walking up the stairs and the sound of his footsteps are reminding him of his Bigger and Jink, when they walk up the stairs. It reminded him of the abandoned hotel they used to hangout at to do drugs. Reef then reveals that the only reason why he enjoyed that view was because his grandmother would take him to the citadel across the street. The sound of his footsteps then reminds him of his grandfather who would scold him everyday.

After, Leeza is reminded of her physiotherapist as her legs start to burn from climbing the stairs. She is reminded because after the accident she was forced to start walking again. She kept remembering how Reef doesn’t go a day without thinking about her, and that motivated her to keep going.

In chapter 39, Reef finally arrives at Decker’s floor. He then asks a worker where Decker’s office was and finds out that it is the third door to the right. He then remembers being out with Bigger and Jink, jumping a guy named Rowdy Brewster, and him doing the right thing of calling the police and telling Frank about what he did. He remembers Frank telling him that he was proud of him. By remembering this, Reef was reminded of how he changed and his anger goes away. Suddenly, Decker comes out and provokes him into getting angry again. He then makes accusations which only made Reef more angrier. People started to come out of their offices to see what the noise was about. Reef was ready to swing. As Reef was on the verge of snapping, Leeza comes in and stops him.

In the last chapter, Reef and Leeza are having coffee at a Starbucks. They are holding hands and admiring each other like lovers. Leeza then thinks about how she acted on her pursuit. She says that she was different. Shen then remembers how Decker’s face looked as she proved him wrong and as all these reporters shoving microphones into his face. They then look into each others eyes and reintroduce themselves. They step outside the starbucks and share a kiss. After the kiss, Bigger and Jink come and pick them up.
