By now Mica was pensive and she told Karl “it is time to get serious!” We moved to the tunnel walkways and as it became later more men there walking by as the Euro Cup soccer match was just ending. OK, I thought, this is the best she can do then this is what we will do. Against the wall of the tunnel I went, fielding request after request, all with the same answer “Je suis en attente de ma mère pour arriver par le bus!” Translation: “I am waiting for my mother to arrive by the bus” became my standard answer. Men came up to me and men walked away but in the end I could see Mica smiling and nodding her head. Finally, she waved me back. I had convinced her I could think on my feet and with that we had a deal. The next night I would be brought to the district and slotted with the shadow girls.
