Will a new beginning…
Lead to forever?
What good is a home without a family? School principal Eric Wells finally has the house he’s always wanted, but a painful childhood makes him question his ability to be a father. So when his high school crush Amy Morgan returns to Bluestone River with her troubled daughter, he’s surprised to find he wants to be there for both of them. Will Amy finally give him a chance?
While Eric got the snowblower going, Amy shoveled the back stairs and quickly brushed snow off the front porch and stairs. Between the two of them, the place was cleared in about a quarter of the time it usually took Amy by herself. Cassie and Grandma appeared in the front window to watch the snow pile up along the edge of the sidewalk. When he’d stowed his snowblower and the shovel, she led him inside through the back and into the kitchen. Cassie was waiting by the door.
“We hang out in the kitchen a lot, don’t we, Cassie?” Amy remarked. “What can we give Mr. Wells for a treat? We need to say thanks for helping me out.” She went into the living room where Grandma Barb was helping Grandpa out of his chair.
She heard Cassie say, “We’ve got cookies. Want one?”
Eric chuckled. “I’ve never said no to a cookie, if that’s the plan. Will you be joining me at the table?”
“Okay,” Cassie said. “But I’ve been sick.”
“Your teacher told me about your bad cold.” Suddenly, his voice took on a note of disbelief. “What’s this?”
Amy came back into the kitchen to see him grinning and pointing to a photo of Cassie anchored on the refrigerator with a magnet.
“That’s me and Miss Sparkle at the Snowball Fair,” Cassie said. “Remember, we got the Special Mention ribbon and we had burgers and fries.”
“Oh, I do recall that day. As a matter of fact, I have the same picture on my fridge.”
“Yes, really. And I also remember you and your mom feeding an apple to one of the horses.”
“And we saw the parrots.”
“Is that so, lassie,” he said in his pirate accent.
Eric had such an easy way of bantering with Cassie—probably all kids. Cassie didn’t seem nervous or like it was at all unusual for the principal to be in her kitchen recalling the day he’d taken her and Cassie to the Snowball Fair.
