Who is this sassy lost child

In the end, it was just Jordan tagging along with Jae and Hazel as they made their slow progress around the area in search of shelter. Lizzie slipped off to look for Ty and Vanessa went her own way to look for her friends now that Jae had found one of his. It was an odd loss, given that she was the only really decent interaction Jae had had here until Hazel showed up, but he wasn't about to stop her from pursuing her own ends. Vanessa could take care of herself.

By the time evening fell, they'd settled on scoping out the vehicle depot for a place to hole up for the night. It seemed less likely to be crowded, and a car was more comfortable than sleeping outside. The three of them settled on a pair of old trucks in one of the garages that were relatively intact and close together; when it came time to sleep, Jae wouldn't be able to comfortably fit in one of the smaller seats with his splinted leg, so he had one to himself while Hazel and Jordan took the other. It was also established that someone should keep watch in shifts, which he volunteered for. Tired as he was, he didn't feel like sleeping.

Jae arranged himself in the truck's back seat, where he’d have the best view of the garage door and anyone approaching from outside. He was farther away from the others than he might strictly have liked, but sitting nearby while they clumped together asleep wasn’t much better than falling asleep himself if something came up. He set to fiddling with things to keep himself from drifting off, clicking his tongue stud against his teeth out of habit, though he found his attention wandering anyways.
"Art enriches the community, Steve, no less than a pulsing fire hose, or a fireman beating down a blazing door. So what if we're drawing a nude man? So what if all we ever draw is a nude man, or the same nude man over and over in all sorts of provocative positions? Context, not content! Process, not subject! Don't be so gauche, Steve, it's beneath you."
