A boy had taken on a lot of identities since then as he tried to escape the system. He was known as Danny, Todd, Harry, Jimmy, and any other name that he hoped would help him give the social welfare officers the slip when they got too close for comfort. After he aged out of the system, he chose a single name to become his own. From the moment he turned 18 he became Michael Pearson. Michael had no education to speak of. He lived a life of petty thievery and crimes in order to survive.

He made rent by filching other people's wallets and put food in his stomach by shoplifting whatever he could from grocery and convenience stores. He always lived alone and he preferred it that way. Made it easier to run from the cops. But then something happened that made him rethink being alone. He met a woman. Nancy was a woman of the world. She had money, charm, and some of the richest men in the city on her arm. But underneath all of her glamor she was the same as Michael, a con woman.

Nancy used her body to get ahead in life the way that Michael learned to use his when he went through his gigolo phase. They crossed paths one night during an opera event where Michael was working the crowd as a pickpocket. She was there as an escort to a wealthy older man. They noticed each other immediately and had a connection. A connection that made her want to help him get away when he was caught with her escort's gold cigarette case in his satchel.

She posted his bail and waited for him to get out of jail. They were inseparable from that moment on. They both had a dream in life. That of finally breaking away from all the tough times they were forced to deal with living in Los Angeles. Seattle, it has a nice ring to it. They would move to Seattle one day and start over. They would make a new, crime-free life together. That was how Michael came to find himself sitting at Union Station waiting for Nancy.

They had finally saved up enough money to make a new start in Seattle and they were to leave that afternoon for a new life.
