I spent the next days doing everything I could to get that little boy. I didn’t notice Kelly was so distant it was if he wasn’t there.
When he tried to talk to me I told him; “I am doing this.”
He didn’t say anything.
Then, I finally got Owen and took him home with me.
Owen had a bad life, issues, so I was not shocked by his strange behaviour and demands. I assumed I could help him. I took leave from work and spent the next day being with Owen.
Kelly watched from a distance. That evening Kelly packed his things. While I was trying to get Owen to eat dinner, Kelly came to me, handed me the key to the flat. He smiled, wished me well, and left.
I think I said something about him being a coward, but he didn’t answer. He was gone.
