Chapter 125: In the Fullness of Time…
Alpheus stretched out on the boys’ bedroom floor, adding bass notes to Trumble’s and Ethan’s bright harmony. A second bunk bed now stood against the far wall, in readiness for the Pomeroys’ expanding family. Naomi’s due date had come and gone, and tensions were running high.
A sudden thud from the next room silenced the trio, and a moment later, Jomei slipped into the room. “It’s time. Alpheus …? Did he faint?”
Ethan patted the big warrior’s cheek. “I believe so!”
Trumble chuckled. “Good thing he was already on the floor. I would sooner try to catch a toppling tower.”
