aiden and i waited in the closet for what seemed like days, teh stuffy muggy room could not be good for little aiden. i clung to the hope that kota would come back, and before max did.
finally i heard footsteps and kota walked in.
"hey, sorry it took so long but i had to wait till max left."
"no problem lets just get out of here"
we got up and i grabbed aiden, soon we were out the door.
"now where should i take you to?" he asked kindly.
"i am not sure, i have given it some thought and we cannot go back, so maybe just drop us off at a train station and we will find somewhere else,"
"oh, no way. i am not leaving a young beautiful mother and her little child alone out there, how about some food first and talk later?"
"oh, i couldnt, im just grateful you got us out."
"well then repay me by letting me take you to lunch somewhere."
we ate and talked, Kota never really had much of a faimly and was looking for adventure, he wanted to leave our small town as soon as possible, he also loved aiden.
"so, i know we dont know each other well but i would gladly travel with you, i have money. inheireted. from my grandpa, its with me, trust me it would last us. and i would work, you need help."
"if you really want to..."
"ok, so where to?"
