He’d only been gone for a year.
But when Geoff calls him in for a job he sounds different. Aged and somehow calmer if that’s possible.
So he comes back, comes home to Los Santos, and finds that Geoff isn’t the only one who’s changed. Jack has suddenly acquired a love for motorcycles, Ryan (who has abandoned his mask and his jacket) whispers that it’s been a while since she’s flown. Michael has changed the least, but there are scars Ray has never seen before. Scars he’ll have to wait to hear the story behind because he wasn’t there when they happened.
Gavin… Gavin had changed.
