After flipping a coin he starts trusting her and decide to tell her his memories to the questions and how he could answer.
It’s a very suspense start of the book, I liked the way the author writes and I want to know how it’s going on this Ram!
I hope you know who I am, or hopefully could imagine who is writing you if I tell you you are my mum. And I am your son. Your son who is dreaming from you every night. Your son who is called Ram but has no name. Mother. Why did you do that? Why did you left me in a bin in front of an orphanage? Why didn’t you take me with you und gave me the love everyone needs from his mother? There are so many Why’s in my head but I know that you had a good reason for leaving me alone.
