When Alice was young, Kev wanted nothing to do with her, and she mostly had to fend for herself. But now that Kev is growing old, she’s reluctantly making the decision that she can’t do the same to him.
When Alice arrives back at Zedadias’ home late at night, she finds Kev wandering around behind the house. She immediately gets more verbal abuse from him.
But she puts up with it and takes Kev to the diner, where she pays for him to have a meal.
When his hunger is satisfied, Kev begins to accost the other people outside.
Alice comes out after Kev, stands and watches him for a moment, then goes back inside to buy a drink.
