Feeling guilty, the pair try to act as normal as they continue to go on a night out with Summer.
Later on, Amy and Aaron go back to the flat and play some drunk party games together.
After having fun together, they decide to go to bed.
However, Amy starts to feel sick and rolls over from Aaron.
With Amy too drunk to know what’s going on, Aaron rapes her.
