"Sometimes in the waves of change we find our true direction"
It has been half and hour since the whole ordeal that had transpired between us, I was sitting on one of the comfy sofa.
My mind was reeling with different thoughts, but the most prominent of them was the concern for my parents, I need to ask Alessandro about how long is he going to keep me here and find a way to contact my parents.
