Wild had waited forever to get this call. Something from Kat. It was just now, he didn't know what to say nor do. She'd sort of left him with the idea that she never ever wanted to see him again.
There was good reason but, he didn't really want to talk about it. He watched three year old Keegan help him with the cookie dough. This was the problem that Kat could live with out. But Keegan was completely potty trained now, so it wouldn't be a problem if he went on a trip with him.
It was an iceberg in Kingston, Ontario. In fact, his marriage was pretty icy too. He supposed it really wasn't one.
"How is she?" Wild asked first thing when Fish called.
"Bitter as ever. How else would she be?" Fish acted as if she hadn't changed, but Wild remembered a different girl, so independent that she needed no one, but he needed her. He still needed her even if he'd possibly dropped the worst bomb shell on her. Yeah, he had a kid and now that kid lived with him.
He ruffled Keegan's thick blonde hair. His eyes were big and a lot like Wild's. No denying the kid was his. Of course, Keegan's mother did her damnedest to keep him away to the point that Wild was used to the idea.
Yet, he hadn't wanted history to repeat its-self. He'd been shipped off to an orphanage at five because his mother couldn't stand him. He hadn't heard from her since, and he'd never known his Dad.
Yet being a single father, there wasn't much he could do..until now. After all, it was just a one night stand with Jennifer. And now here he and Keegan were. Together. Keegan's mother was killed in a car accident by drunk driver.
He hesitated about mentioning Keegan to Fish.
