After nursing Geraldine back to health, Ash let her go, but it appeared Geraldine didn’t want to leave. Since then, Geraldine is a constant companion for Ash.

Ash lives with autism and often is overwhelmed by anxiety when going to new places and meeting new people, but with Geraldine by her side, she has found the courage to do new things and talk to new people.
