Nick Pacelli has been encouraging Isabella Lupton to explore her sexuality, gently pushing her boundaries and introducing her to a level of pleasure than she hadn't known existed.
When they are invited to join the other residents at a private function, Nick is hesitant. How will Isabella react to their relationship being on public display?
