after all this time
It was strange looking at Amanda's brother now. He'd grown up too quickly, but Kyle gave him a pat on the back. "It'll be fine. You'll see."
"I guess. Its just, you know, I don't..I don't want ..to be..." Derrick winced hard, and Kyle could see Derrick's nervousness.
"You aren't your Dad.' Kyle knew he needed to hear that. "I don't guess there is any chance..you know..you and this girl..."
"No." Derrick wouldn't even hear of it. "In fact, I'm seeing someone, who..won't get pregnant." Derrick kind of laughed, but not really. "God, I just ..should..have..should have known it was possible. I wasn't thinking..I really didn't want to think about anything..when..when Amanda died. And..and I know that's not an excuse.." Derrick was shaking now. Kyle gave him a hug. "It would have never happened..if..if.."
Kyle kept telling him, it would be all right. In fact, it might be amazing what was to come.
