The one thing comes up in her mind after Layton harassed her is why did her father left her alone with some stranger even though they stayed together for sometime and not take care of her. After they come back home, Sam filled out the acceptance form for the scholarship to boarding school. She decided to go to the boarding school and leave her father.
