it was max. the sudden knowledge of that left me with so many questions as we got into the beat up chevy truck.i sat aiden on my lap and put him to sleep. then i turned to max
he laughed, "remember your friend kendra? of course you do, well me and her are engaged, and your father took the liberty to ask me about child support, child support! for a kid i dont even want! i dont even know its name."
"his name is aiden" i said softly
"well, kendras parents are strict and if they knew i had a kid they wouldnt approve of me so much so i am not safe until you two are gone."
i stared at him wondering what he had in mind.
"max are you still on drugs?"
"whats it to you?"
"max, are you high right now?"
"leah, id be worrying about you and him if i were you"
i sat in silence and cursed myself for letting this happen, we passed the bridge, the river, everything familiar to me until we stopped at an old beat up house. max got us out and suddenly we were in the darkness of a basement with nothing to do but wait.
