...this piece looks a little weird, maybe even a little uncomfortable. But that's the Kate and Aaron story isn't it? When Kate and the rest of the Oceanic Six were rescued, keeping Aaron for herself was her way of coping with all they had been through (and all she had lost, *cough* Sawyer) in the preceding 108 days. Once she found something that made her feel whole, she held on to it until the day she was strong enough to let it go, all the while fearing that he too would be taken from her.
People tend to not like Kate, but I still do. There's a delicate humanity to her that this little boy brought out so fully, it's hard to write her off completely.
As for this boy--this "sweet, and kind, and good" little boy--I really hope we haven't seen the last of him. Just 13 days to go, people. Have a good one.
