You Can't Tell By Looking

"He's a kid, he doesn't know what he wants."

Mrs. Cohen was wrong.  Ryan knew exactly what he wanted…

Growing up Ryan learned that 'want' wasn't a good thing.  No matter how hard you 'wanted,' it didn't mean you were ever gonna 'get.'  But Ryan still wanted things.

When he was a kid he wanted to be an architect.  He wanted to be just like the kids he saw on tv-with a bike, a dog, and a white picket fence.

Well, he had gotten his bike.  The dog had gotten run over.  They had a chain length fence.

Now he wanted to belong somewhere; he wanted to be able to unpack; he wanted to be wanted.

He just didn't want theses things, he needed them.  Above all of that though, he needed to stay here.  In Orange County.
