KIM: Can we start over? I went to a real estate office and I found some houses I think you might like. There’s some really nice options in your price range. This one’s on half an acre. And this one is older, but it has a really good view and the neighborhood’s pretty.

I know moving is a big deal, I’d like to help you out with that myself if that’s alright with you. I can take off any day this week and I’ll pay for it out of my own pocket.

Oh, this one has three bedrooms. I know you don’t wanna move, but whatever house you choose will be yours, you’ll own it and the land forever.

I can’t pretend to understand what you’re going through. I’ve never owned a house. My family never owned one either. We never owned anything. When I was little, my mother used to shake me awake in the middle of the night, yelling it was time to go. She was always one step ahead of the landlord. I’d throw my things in a cardboard box and run outside in my pajamas in bare feet. Sometimes, it was so cold my toes turned blue.

If we’d had a house, I never would have wanted to leave.
