"Not whatever your punk 'posse' call you," he said, barely keeping his voice level, "I mean your real name. What people who aren't jail-bound would call you."

He ran his hands through his hair, slicking it back.

"If it helps...my name's Jake. Jacob Miller, really. But everyone calls me Jake, so I s'pose you can too."

"...Stevan," he replied quietly. "...please, uhm, call me Jess, uh....please."

"...Fair enough," he replied with a shrug. "Jess. Now, Jess, please go try on those clothes so I don't have to see any more of your junk? I'm a police officer, I see enough indecency on the job."

He looked to the side, feeling somehow obligated to embarrass the kid as little as possible. Maybe ti was the scars; maybe it was the meekness with which he said his own name, like it was a secret. To be honest, he had been expecting a worse attitude from the punk who had stolen his car.

He nodded, still hiding his face as much as possible. He hoped Jake would allow him his facepaint soon. He was afraid he'd have to sneak out to get it, otherwise.

He put on the clothes, which barely fit him. Not unlike his own clothes, which was why it was nothing different than usual. When he was dressed, he awkwardly handed the towel to Jake.

"Uh, I don't know where to, you know, put this."

He balled it up and tossed it into the laundry hamper in the corner of the bathroom.

"There's fine, just do that from now on. Now, kid..." He considered asking him about the scars. Or maybe about why he was hanging out with a car-stealing girlfriend in the first place.

"...What do you want for dinner? I gotta get that started soon, so...I guess I should prolly stop eating like a bachelor, now that I got company. I can go shoppin' if we need, so just tell me what you're in the mood for."

"I'll eat, uh, anything," he said immediately. He barely got any food where he lived, let alone good food. "Uhm...but...uh...real meat would be...good."

Jake stared at him, unimpressed.

"Okay...you have any idea what kind of meat, kid? That's a goddamn broad category, and we aren't gonna rob a meat market or however your folks do it back home. You got a favorite meal or somethin'?"

Jess tried to think of what a real meal was, but he was loathe to admit he had no idea.

"...anything?" he asked, feeling horribly embarrassed again. He stared at the ground. "I'm, uhm, really, uh, sorry..."

He groaned audibly and stomped his foot, trying not to lose his temper.

"...Look, kid. I'm going to grill some chicken and make green beans or somethin' for a side, and you're gonna like it, okay?" He pointed at Jess as thought accusing him, then awkwardly lowered his hand.

He nodded eagerly. Jess held his stomach, to stop it from growling. He knew he was hungry for a real meal, but it was embarrassing to admit.

"Now go...watch TV or somethin'," he grumbled, shuffling to the fridge. He scanned its meager contents for ingredients he could use and sighed deeply; Maggie had always been the cook. Life without her was hard in ways he had never considered with her around.

Jess hung around the kitchen, awkwardly shuffling his feet.

"Uhm, I can, uh, help..." He offered, knowing he couldn't help at all.

"Go into the other room before I chase you in there with my gun," he growled, pulling a chicken breast out of the fridge. "Fuckin' do it before I get pissed, punk."

Meekly, he disappeared into the living room. He slumped over on the couch, unsure of what to do. Jake's house was quiet, unlike his trailer. Always loud, filled with the noises of high people. Often, high people having sex. This was much different. It was clean, smelled clean.

Jess felt horribly naked, however. He was constantly pulling the sleeves over his arms so he could continue to hide his scars.

An awkward hour or so later, Jake had scooped instant mac-and-cheese onto a plates along with some grilled chicken and green beans. It was the type of meal Maggie would have made on an off-day, but it was probably the best thing Jake had ever made. He hadn't even burned anything this time.

He set the table just like he would've if Maggie were still there, then awkwardly shoved Jess's silverware into Gunner's spot instead.

"Get over here and eat if you want anything," he called, grabbing some milk from the fridge and pouring himself a glass. "If you don't want anything, you can just sleep on an empty belly--see if I care, punk."

He sat down in his chair, unable to resist a glance at Maggie's. It was still waiting for her in the right spot, like any second she'd just come downstairs and look at the meal he'd made and chastise him for almost overcooking the noodles and kiss him on the cheek.

Instead of Maggie, Jess shuffled into the room. He barely looked up, as he sat down in the spot reserved for Gunner.

"I, uhm...thanks," he said, trying to smile at Jake. It felt strange to smile without his facepaint, when he knew his scars shifted visibly. He frowned immediately afterwards, awkwardly feeling the ones across his lips.

It hurt thinking so actively about them. He traced them with his fingers, recalling where he had gotten them.

Jake ate in silence, not so much as looking at Jess. When the quiet grew suffocating, he cleared his throat and took a sip of milk.

"...So, kid. Your parents agreed you can do this? Gunner didn't just snatch you up like a lost puppy, did he?

"Trust me, I'd have no qualms sending you back..." He glared out the window, thinking of how he was going to get back at Gunner. Maybe he'd hide his favorite shirt. Or his stupid cowboy chaps.

"My, uh...my parents?" he asked, confused. He toyed with his food, trying not to eat too eagerly. Anything was better than the food he normally ate. "I'm...I'm old, though...Uh...besides, you know, my uh parents are dead."

He quickly took another bite, so Jake couldn't question him further. He refused to speak of the incident.

"...Ah," he said, understanding instantly. "In that case, your foster parents. Or whoever's been takin' care of you--how old are you, sixteen, seventeen? In the law's eyes, you're still a kid. Who takes care of you?"

"I...don't...uhm, mister..." he looked around awkwardly, trying to think of how to explain it. He wasn't sure how to clearly explain he was over eighteen. Quite a bit older, actually. "Uhm...I'm, uh, older than eighteen..."

Jake just stared at him for a few minutes, wordless.

"...That can't be right. Adults aren't stupid enough to steal cars for their girlfriends--that's a teenager thing. A punk thing. How old are you really, son?"

"Grown men are harder to fix--trust me, I've seen 'em." He leaned over the table, glaring at Jess.

"If you don't shape up soon, it will be the big house--no juvie for a grown man. I will ensure that you go to prison, and prison will kick your ass. We clear, son?"

He shoved another bite of chicken into his mouth, not taking his eyes off of Jess.

"I hope to God you're at least good at chores, boy. For your sake."
