This all changed, when he was arrested for a DUI offence, and this time his name was not going to get him out of trouble, in fact, I think it made things worse. The judge concerned, decided he needed to be taught a lesson, and he was awarded community service, helping the elderly gardeners at the community garden.
Bran, who owns the local garden centre, seemed to take a dislike to Nathan as soon as he met him at the community garden - but this could have been because he was late, or so Bran insisted anyway. The two men seem to tolerate each other, and it takes a while for Nathan to realise that he needs to do what is asked of him, but still he seems quite rebellious, but part of it seems to be the enjoyment he gets from trying to rile Bran.
The two men do grow closer, but there seems to be something holding them back - well, Bran you could understand why he is hesitant, but Nathan seems to need to do a lot of growing up, he needs to realise that life is not a game, and that his decisions have consequences, Once Nathan realises this, there may be a chance for him and Bran, but will he take the chance?
