Q. Okay. Was it —

Q. Okay. And when you came down, what did they do?
A. I told them to stop, it was childish. Just laughing at them.
Q. Okay. And what happened next?

Q. Okay. And at some point, did you find what you needed?
Q. Okay. Now, at any point while you all were there at your — your apartment —

Look we need to all calm down; you’ll are supposed to be friends; you’ll just met each other today. Just be friends and calm down and all go to the pool.
Q. And Mr. Worrell was —
A. Mr. Worrell said, that I need to go back to my apartment and change into my clothes before I go.

Q. Where were his keys?

Q. Okay. And how did you know they were still at his apartment?

Q. And how did he find that?
A. It was in his pocket.
Q. Okay. Did Mr. Bomber have to call his number?
Q. And it rang?
Q. Okay. So, what did you all you do when you went — when you got back to Mr. Worrell’s apartment for the second time?
A. For the second time, Mr. Worrell went in — in to his apartment. I stood at the door. David was standing below the steps. It was hot, so I went ahead and walked in because the air conditioner was running. Mr. Bomber followed me after — me in shortly after, and Mr. Worrell was still changing. And I was trying to tell David that, you know, hey look, you’ll have had your fun with the drinking. I think you need to slow down. And he goes, okay, I won’t drink anymore. I’ve only had maybe three (3) or four (4) beers anyway.
Q. Okay. And at some point, did Mr. Worrell change?
Q. Okay. And the two of you — All three (3) of you then went to the pool.
