His mom dies and he's just left to fend on his own? It's not like time isn't passing in his world so weeks have gone by where this kid is just nowhere to be seen. --- 3DS Friend Code: 0946-3552-1822

I'd imagine that the neighbourhood is helping look after him, since this seems to be a very close-knit community and all. Motorville doesn't seem too too huge, but the place Oliver lives could just be a borough as well I suppose.
Miss Layla and Starey Mary (whose name escapes me.. Myrtle?) would be two contenders I'd think, as well as Ollie's mom's friends. I'm also going to wager that Oliver has not a little bit of magical aid in that regard, though that's never explained to my knowledge.
Hmm.. as for him vanishing for long periods of time, I'd assume he puts in some off-camera time at Motorville when you pop into the Cat's Cradle etc., eh? --- 3DS FC is 4081-5496-3902

Something I'm thinking is that when he's in the other world, time moves very, very slowly in his world. This would explain why everyone is so casual about speaking with Oliver. --- I rock. And roll. All day long. Sweet Suzie!

If we were planning to discern the logic of a JRPG, we would be here for the rest of our lives.
That aside, most likely Miss Lelia was taking care of him, due to her bringing him food while he was a recluse in his room . --- Currently playing: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

I always assumed that they just didn't notice. Sorta like how normal humans can't see magic, they would automatically be distracted from thinking something was wrong. Because magic.
I am aware that this theory does not hold up to scrutiny in the slightest...too bad, it works for me!

i get the impression time flows faster in fantasy land while in his town it's only been hours or days
