    Hey bud she patted the top of his head like he was a dog I told you that you could watch some television His only reaction was turning his empty stare towards Jean Hol ly shuddered her mom sighed again and rubbed his shoulder lightly The kid hardly moved for a good ten minutes except to only look over his shoulder a few times before returning to his eerily static posture Holly was wolfing down a bologna sandwich sitting at the tall kitchen table Could you take him to work with you Jean asked as she rushed in and out of the kitchen searching for her favorite purse Kam would fire me if I brought him in with me Holly knew Jean would be perfectly fine with losing her job at Casey s Jean hated everything about the place and ever since she read about the string of gas station robberies on the internet she kept on telling Holly that Huxley was next A man was going to burst through the doors with a gun demanding for all the money and cigarettes Highway 69 cut through the town right in front of Casey s it would be an easy getaway Sure Holly said finishing her sandwich and wondering when Jean s in between job that had stretched into over two years would be over Working at the local dry cleaners had never been a thrilling job Holly would dump clothes out of brightly colored bags into the old wire basket staple paper tags to the clothing toss the dirty clothing into respective piles tally up the tickets and repeat until all of the bags were gone The only excitement coming in was when she found forgotten money Like a waitress tips it was where most of her cash was made When a guest or coworker was present Holly could chat instead of swear at the clothing for being so damn dirty crusty or bloody With Ethan sitting at the desk she still felt utterly alone He busied himself with a coffee stained notebook and a rainbow of colors which included three black sharpies a red pen and an orange highlighter Every day Holly tried to get the radio to work it would only fuzz even if she popped in a CD The only noises filling the air were the machines and pipes randomly kicking on and rattling Ethan flinched every time one of the sounds rattled through Holly stole a glance at the drawing Ethan was concentrating so hard on while hanging a ruined leather jacket on the rack by the desk the coat smelled like it had been hit by a healthy shower of vodka and vomit He was quite the artist even with the limited color supply Holly could easily see a night sky full of highlighter orange stars and a white moon over the red and black silhouette of a city Close to one corner was a boy stick arms spread wide and a too big smile on the almost circle face He was flying That s fantastic Ethan Holly said then pointed to the boy in the corner Is that you He was small in comparison to everything else in the drawing Finally some emotion flooded into his features A cherub smile sparked to life dimpling his tiny cheeks He was missing a front tooth Yeah his voice like a whisper singing Beautiful and small And he speaks Holly said before she could stop herself She flashed him a kind smile I was starting to worry Ethan nodded and returned to his art Holly stepped over the mass of clothes back to the wire basket and bags of clothes He swiveled in the wobbly chair My name s not Ethan he said quietly Holly hardly heard him It s Kite It took a second for Holly to recognize what he had said That s a nice name she commented vaguely while turning out the pockets of mud caked jeans hoping to find money My mother gave it to me Ethan continued turning in the wobbly chair and kicking his feet Really Holly was more focused on adding up the cost of three pairs of jeans and two light starch shirts D you know where you mom is If she found out a bit about his mom they could be reunited He gave her a strange look and pointed to the ceiling Before Holly could figure out a way to gently ask him if she was dead he said She s the moon Holly and her friend Mari were leaning against the hood of Mari s beat up blue Oldsmobile finishing their gas station lunches They watched leaves cartwheel over one of the University of South ern Ankeny s DMACC to anyone other than Holly Mari and three other students parking lots with ten minutes to spare before need ing to head to class Mari shaking her wrist so her small collection of colorful plastic bracelets click clacked together asked if anything interesting happened the other day after classes You have a brother Mari asked tearing her mouth away from her thirty two ounce blue raspberry slushy and choking a little Holly wondered if Mari heard her explain how Ethan thought his mom was the moon and how if he wasn t drawing he was staring Mm hmm Holly nodded then took in a deep breath inhaling the thick smell of burning leaves Mari teased her dark fly away hair making it look as messy as possible and took a long rattling drink That s insane Yeah Holly kicked at the pavement and stared over to build ing six where the auditorium was What are you going to do Holly shrugged We haven t figured it out yet but he s sleeping on the couch for now Ethan seemed to like sleeping on the couch at least for his first night He was able to curl up under a window with a good view of the stars
