Called somebody

Wanted to see me,

but so that you won't find out.

It is lovely that he called you.

I did not know that you communicate.

May I offer you a coffee?

No, for some time I don't

have breakfast with rats.

- Tell me, what is going on?

- Sure.

Your father disappeared

about a month ago.

A bunch of people

are trying to find him,

but he wants to meet

you and your brother,

but so, that the others

don't find out.

But why did he disappear I don't know.

a spiritual son of your father.

Your brother is a sweetheart.

Wal a bit, then have a dinner.

Still working for the government,

but in the office.

Government now has German cars?

In Europe.

And what did my father do

besides raising him?


He said it was not his decision

to return to States

Take me with him or leave me here
