I know it’s been a while since I’ve played along and even longer since I snippeted from These Haunted Hills. Leave it as I’m hope with my parents from the nursing home but I’m still barely able to walk with a walker and have a lot of recovery to do.
Here’s a snippet with Brendan talking to his ex wife about the thoughts of moving on with new loves and dealing with the death of their son.
I do occasionally still feel guilty about being happy again. You know there were days when I wanted to go be with Connor in the next life just as I know you have to. Hell, I was terrified that was what you were going to do when you told me you rented a cabin in the middle of the damn woods.”
He dropped his gaze again. “I know. It’s why I was fine with calling you because I didn’t want you to worry. I don’t want to hurt you ever. But I did think about it, just briefly when I first got there, then I met Josh. It wasn’t anything instant, like one fantastic smile from him and everything was better. But as the days went by, I felt like he could really be the one to help me out of the darkness. He’s a good man. I just wish it wouldn’t feel like I’m digging my heart out with a rusty spoon when I think about being with him.”
