She continues to walk not looking at the girl. “I stole the guys wallet.” she takes it out of her pocket and drops it on Kell’s hands. “There’s a folded up map inside, it’s leading us to Florida. Its a 36 hour drive, and I don’t have money for plane tickets. Are you ready for a…
She gave the girl a weird look. “Sorry, i’m not really in the mood for story telling.”
“Oh, uh … Okay, sorry. I was just trying to break the ice. Since we will get almost 30 hours here in this car I just thought a conversation would be more fun than spending the whole trip in silence. So, I think It was a bad idea. Sorry again.” She begins to play with her hair awkwardly in silent.

It was the best thing that ever happened to me.” Connie became silent again and didn’t dare look at the girl.
Kell smiled at Connie. “It’s a beautiful story. I’ll not ask how it ends, since knowing the whole story on the same day loses all the fun. For the first chapter it’s enough.”
Connie shot her a look. “The first chapter?! What is my life some sort of a game to you?!”

“Oh, it was a joke?” very interesting. “So. Do you need to pee? There’s a gas station coming up.”
Without taking the shirt of her mouth. “I’m starving! Do you want something too? I’ll buy some snacks.”
She looked at her. “See if they got any pie… bring me some pie?”
