At that moment, her teacher Stirling Cooper happens to be driving by and offers to give her a lift to work. Relieved, Aiden hops in.
As they drive, Stirling makes conversation. She’s one of his best students and he’s curious why she’s working in a diner. Shouldn’t she be focusing on her education? Aiden explains that working at the diner is how she makes ends meet.
Stirling seems to get an idea, explaining to Aiden that his step-dad runs a business that he’s involved in. Maybe it’s something that Aiden would be interested in? She ponders for a moment, asking Stirling what kind of business it is.
He hesitates and gives Aiden his step-father’s business card. She can think about it and if she’s interested, she can give him a call and he’ll explain what type of business it is.
