    Juan stepped out of the very hot and slightly smelly taxi. All the buildings were insanely high and the boy had to put his eyes all the way up and still couldn't see the end of some of them. "Wow," he whispered breathlessly.

"It has a strange beauty in it,right?"I whispered and shook my head."Let's find you something to wear and then some ice cream maybe?"I suggested and smiled softly down at him

    He nodded. The city was pretty, but also a strange kind of sad as well. Everyone was staring at their phones, lost in their own world. No one was connected any more. "Sure, that sounds good." The boy started walking forward, eyes scanning all the stores and shops and all sorts of things.

"So...Would you like to tell me your story?"I asked awkwardly as I followed him,waiting to see if he decided where he wanted to go

    "What do you mean by that?" He looked at her, eyes curious for her answer. He was definitely unsure on where to go. There were too many stores, too many choices.

    Juan gave her an understanding head nod. "You already know I was born in Nicaragua. Lived in an orphanage for most of my life, helped out with the cooking a lot. Marc came in when he was ten? I dunno, satyrs age oddly. We became friends, and he was really pressuring me to become an American citizen. It took years, but I managed to do it. Marc showed himself as a satyr at that point and took me to camp. And now we're here."

I nodded when he said satyrs age oddly,he was definitely right."But why where you in an orphanage?"I asked with a slight frown.Why would anyone want to abandon the kid?

    He shrugged. "Well, Lethe couldn't take care of me. I was born out of an affair, so it would probably be natural for the father to run away." His hands slipped into his pockets and he stared out into the jungle of steel and concrete. "What's your story?"

"Nah,it's nothing.I'm sorry for your dad"I mumbled,avoiding his question and pointed at a big building at the end of the road."I think that's a mall.Wanna go have a look?"

    She didn't answer his question, not even giving it thought. Juan decided to drop it, for now. "It's not your fault." His eyes went to where she was pointing. "That place is really big. Sure."

I chuckled at that."Most of the places here are bigger than that."I said and started walking towards the building.

    Of course, he knew that. A quick look around could tell anyone with eyes that the buildings ran much bigger. He stepped forward to the automatic doors, people flowing in and out on both sides. "Well, let's go."

I laughed and pushed him inside,one hand protectively on his shoulder."Well,where to?There are alot of stores in here!"I exclaimed with an amused grin

    He shrugged again. "I-I really don't know. You're American, you've lived here much longer, how about you decide?" It wasn't because he couldn't make up his mind to save his life, but he didn't want to waltz into some store, head held high, and then realize it was a coffee shop or whatever.
    Juan would probably realize it was a coffee shop beforehand, but that's beside the point.

"I rarelly left camp since I arrived there.And I'm not American"I added and noticed a big sign of Puma."Hey,do you see that?Maybe we'll find something there!And,I'm sure there will be other shops like that around"I suggested and turned to look at him with my hands in my pockets

    He nodded, mind pondering the thought. "So, you're as new to this as I am," he mused. A big smile appeared on his face, and he grabbed her arm. "Well, let's go!

    He started searching through the stands. Clothes were just piled on top of each other, the most clothing he's seen in a while. There was a nice shirt, a sort of blue plaid? His hands gently took it off the rack. What size was he, even? It looked the same size. He pulled off another few shirts, a few pairs of pants, a new pair of shoes. Satisfied with his pickings, he wandered over to Emma. "I'm going to try these on, okay?"

I was checking out some awesome black running shoes when I heard my little brother saying something.I looked up and grinned at him."Sure,go ahead,kiddo.I'll just find you some more stuff,okay?"I pointed the dressing rooms at him and got up,putting two of the pairs in their boxes.I stood up and gave the two boxes to an employee before going to the clothes' wall to pick out some other stuff for Juan

    He nodded, then walked on over to the dressing room. The first shirt looked nice, it fit well and all. The second was a little big, and the third was pretty awesome too. All the pairs of pants fit pretty well, he might need a belt or so. Then the shoes, Converse? They were nice and grey and pretty, and they went well with the other clothing. With a smile on his face, he realized they fit, and boy was he happy. After a few moments, he went back to Emma, clothes in hand. "They all fit, and they were really nice looking too."

I grinned and handed him the clothes and shoes I had picked before giving those I took from him to the same employee I had given my shoes too."That's great,go try these on too!"I urged him

    He grabbed the other clothes and rushed back to the dressing room. They were rather nice-looking, probably moreso than the ones he picked out. They all fit well too. He admired them, and Emma's fashion sense, before changing back into the old clothes and carrying a rather large pile of clothes in his hands.

I grinned and took the new clothes from him too before heading to the checkout,following the guy with the rest of our stuff.I quickly paid for everything and took the 4 bags before turning to the kid."Where to now?"I asked him with a smile
