Excuse me, sir? Do you happen to know where Kinton Street is>
Actually yes, I do.
Thank you so much! i'm on vacation here and I can't remember how to get back to my hotel.
What's wrong?
Ugh you know, I just remembered how to get back. Thank you though.
Come on, I'll show you your way back
No. Thank you, I'll go on my own.
Don't you know how to play chess?
Please leave me alone.
You don't look like you've slept in a while
I know how to play chess. Just please, leave me alone. You're right, I didn't sleep all night. Find someone else to play your silly game.
I would move my knight forward like this.
Oh really? Because if you were me, which, like you said you aren't, you as me wouldn't play chess with a stranger.
Oh i see.
you see what?
you don't want to talk to me.
exactly. that's why I told you to leave me alone.
then why are you still talking to me?
maybe it's because you won't stop asking me questions.

...malicious looking guy!
well no...it's just that...
get that out in the open?
No! it's not that at all!
why won't you play chess with me?
I'm Lydia.
Decent move kid
Really?
that way, you will never regret your move
I don't really like thinking 10 moves ahead
it's how the game is played
it's too much to think about. i'd rather just do something and see what happens.
but then one careless move could ruin your whole game
exactly. it's just a game.
why didn't you sleep last night?
it was just cold and uncomfortable. The park's not the most luxurious place to sleep
why were you sleeping in the park?
forget about it. It's not important. it's a long story
it's not safe
believe me i know
did something happen?
No really. it's fine. i'm okay
i'd like to know what happened.
well it all started out with my parents. we were arguing over one thing or another. whatever it doesn't matter. I got really upset and couldn't take it anymore. I told them i was going to get something from my room and i ran away. I wasn't thinking...at all. I just needed the fresh air and the lights...so i started walking and thinking...and walking faster and faster. By the time my mind stopped spinning and i had calmed down, i was on some street i'd never seen before and it was dark out.i just wanted to check up on my parents not actually talk to them but just sorta see how how they were doing. So last night when i was walking i saw a well dressed man and i asked him for directions. He was...he was strange and too friendly so i tried to get away. but then he grabbed me, so i ran. I shouldn't have told you all that. How do i know i can trust you? i want to trust you, but everything i've learned tells me not to.
what did everything you'd learned tell you to do?
to trust him. so everything i've learned is wrong? i don't know anything?
well that's just it
that's just what?
I'm just as lost as you are
I think i like being lost
I'm suprised you've lasted a week.
So they can yell at me? So they can act like they know more than i do? you said it yourself sid, you're just as lost as i am...and so are they. They tell me they know everything but they don't. they act like they're so superior. it makes me sick
loneliness will consume you.
where do you get off telling me what to do? i hardly know you.
why did you run away?
I told you, we got into a fight.
That's a valid reason to become homeless.
don't act like it's such a foreign idea...look at you.
you're right.
My parents were just expecting too much of me...i couldn't handle it.
we're not so different
we're complerely different sid. you know that. we're just in the same boat i guess.
and you're still young
umm...yeah obviously
you need to go home
i already told you, I can't take it there. It's hell. they expect so much of me
how old are you?
i'm 17 why?
if only for a few minutes
sid, i'm not like you.
you aren't lonely?
no i love being alone.
There's nothing worse than losing the people you love
what if i want to lose them.
and not a stone tell where i lie.
i..i don't know what you just said but it's exactly how i feel
it's a poem
you see? whoever wrote that, he knows how i feel! i'm not crazy!
and then i realized why.
yes...?
the only words that made me hate myself less for leaving and living alone.
leaving?
please go home.
but i
you know where to find me
sid wait.
what is it?
do you know where the nearest payphone is?
hello this is the hilton hotel in...
can you connect me to roon 4157?
lydia is that you
oh sid...hey
calling your parents?
oh yea...you know they...i actually decided not to go home. i like it out here
please, for me, go home
no, it's ok. i've decided
regret this for the rest of your life.
you know what? they aren't there ok? they...they left me?
what are you talking about?
I called the hotel. There was no answer in their room. i mean what kind of parents---why aren't they waiting for my call? i've been gone for a while you'd think they would be worried. I bet they're out to dinner having a great time w/o me
don't say that!
why aren't they there then. explain that to me!
they're probably out looking for you.
yeah. i'm sure. god, i thought if i left they would miss me! i thought they would at least acknowledge my absense. I guess it's just a regular night for them. i just, i always assumed they'd be there for me. Parents are supposed to always be there for their kids. and look at me! i don't know where they are. i'm compltely stranded. and i'm not going to lie to myself. i...i did this to myself
i'm not going to argue that
i've never been so horrified to be alone
it gets easier
really?
no not at all
Do you wanna play some chess?
and then we'll go look for your parents
