Christian: “It’s my pleasure, Wesley. I always like to take care of people. Are you ready to tell me more about what’s happened to you?”
Ooh boy…how much does Wesley want to reveal? He bites his lip pensively, then decides that the truth is probably the best option.
He explains that his ex girlfriend, Morgan, dumped him and left him and their son on their own. She passed away on that night and Wesley was grief stricken, so much so that he didn’t feel like a good enough parent and asked his own parents to look after his son for a while. Once his son was somewhere safe, he tried to look for work after losing his job with the political campaign that he used to support, but one one would hire him because the politician he worked for was massively corrupt and got caught. Eventually he couldn’t keep up with his mortgage payments and soon the bailiffs were knocking on his door. All that he could do was grab anything really personal to him and leave. He’s been homeless since then.
Christian stares at him with his mouth agape as he tells him about what has happened to him. How someone could go through so much and still keep going is a testament to the strength of their character.
