Jason hasn’t seen Cami in three years.
Now she’s back, with the son he’d wanted to claim as his own. Can he believe her newly found faith or will she desert him, and God, again?
I need you to do something for me,” Cami said, once they were alone, and then let out a quiet, feminine burp.
“You got it.”
“Good. I need you to be my son’s godfather.”
Jason’s pulse quickened. He leaned toward her, reached out and
pushed the damp strands of hair from her forehead. “I could be his father.”
A tear, just one, leaked out, and Cami brushed it away. But not before he noticed.
“Hey, don’t sweat it.” He mimicked her motion and gently brushed her cheek. “I’ll do whatever job you want me to.”
She took his hand, and kissed the back of his knuckles. “Thank you. You know it’s not that you wouldn’t be a great dad. I’ve seen you with your little cousins.”
“Yeah.” He looked toward the window, wondering briefly when his sister had hung those girly curtains. Years ago he’d had Spiderman on everything.
“It’s just... he may come back and want to be a father.”
“Just change his mind after all these months and come running back?” Jason leveled his voice, breathing deep to control his temper. “And that would make him a good father? A last minute pang of conscience? And what would you do then, Cami?” He looked into her eyes. “You won’t even tell us who it is. Would you marry him? Take him back after he deserted you?”
She said nothing, but let her eyes close.
To avoid his gaze? Or his question?
