Chapter 127: Welcome to the Family
Ethan slipped into the hospital room where Jayce shepherded his children. “Come meet your new brother!”
“Can I hold him?” Prissie asked.
“Sure, sure. Everyone gets a turn!”
“Momma,” Tad greeted, propping his elbows on the mattress at the foot of the bed.
Neil pushed closer, trying to see inside the blue blanket. “Does he look like me?”
“Or me?” asked Beau.
While the Pomeroys talked, Ethan marveled at Alpheus’s wingspan. Deep blue folds extended far enough to encompass the entire family. The Guardian’s qualms had vanished, leaving joy and peace … and an unwavering gaze for his newborn charge.
