The heat is oppressive here. And I mean an uncomfortable kind of oppressive, not the Sunday morning, parasol-totting stroll along the local beach kind of oppressive. Though I could stand the sunlight for brief periods of time, I prefer to not, over two-decades of habit will do that to a person, a vampyre, either, really. I linger inside, in the meantime, in corners, fiddling around on my phone that I never use, seriously wishing I’d invested in getting Oren one, then this whole tracking down my son would be a lot, a lot easier. And then I realize I could call Marisa Roberts. Then I realize I do not have her number. And then I realize that’s what free wi-fi, search engines, and smart-phones are for. I spent the last three hours looking up “Marisa Roberts” on the Internet. It lead me to a plethora of Simbook profiles, one (slightly promising) chatter account, no phone number, and finally an article written by my Oren’s Marisa Roberts. I must have read it twenty times—it was good, this coming from someone who hasn’t read a newspaper since her seventh grade teacher asked everyone to bring in an article for a project. I mean, sure, I get all the prevalent news dictated to me; I’m not stuck in a bubble. Not much of one, anyway. How does one even start on a story like that? Do you start small and duplicitous—getting hired by the company you’re trying to take down? Or do you start big and noisy—call out the CEO and demand an interview? Or some other secret thing they teach at journalist school? At least now I know why she went to Setra again—however many weeks ago that was. I only remember because Oren asked me if he should go with Marisa, and I had to remind him that he was probably talking to the wrong woman. It’s endearing how flustered she makes my son. And then, I am there. At his house. And there we have it! Part three of Chapter Two, we're well on our way, people!
