Chapter 139: Cuddle Buddy
Jude was a born cuddler. He couldn’t be happier than when he was nestled in the crook of someone’s arm, and he was happiest if they were smiling back at him. This kept Naomi’s hands full in a new way, making Jayce chief Zeke-wrangler.
Zeke was a born climber. The moment his father came into view, he was running, reaching, and clambering his way onto the man’s shoulders. Jomei remarked, “That boy wants nothing more or less than to be smack dab in the middle of Jayce’s life.”
Ethan looked on approvingly. “Giving full attention, and demanding it in return.”
