Every now and then, Dee found himself thinking about the kids he’d grown up with at the orphanage, close friends, rivals, and enemies, scattered now like leaves on the wind. There were a few he was still in touch with: Tommy, off serving his country, Macey, still styling hair but running her own salon now, two or three others, but what had become of the rest?
Hundreds had passed through Mother’s doors in the eighteen years Dee had lived there. What were they doing now? Did they have good jobs, homes and families? Or had they been hit by hard times and lost their way, like some of the street people he came across through his job?
So much time had passed and some of them he’d barely known, but still… Once in a while, a face or a name would surface from his memory, he’d get to wondering, and he’d start trying to track them down. Sometimes Mother would know something, the names of the people who’d adopted them, or the city they’d moved to. Other times he had nothing to go on but a name, and yet no matter what, he always tried.
Sometimes, he even found one.
