Rough and Tumble, Chapter 223: Enjoy the Journey

Chapter 223: Enjoy the Journey

“I can’t believe we’re already here,” murmured Naomi. “I’m not sure I’m ready for this.”

Jayce chuckled. “I’m not sure his teacher’s ready for this. But Zeke is.”

His wife smiled. “I wonder if this is what they mean when they say someone’s born ready.”

Alpheus tapped Ethan’s shoulder. “Are you ready?”

“Always and never,” he admitted with a wry smile. “I cannot say for certain.”

“I don’t hear nothing.” Zeke’s red sneakers did a dance of impatience on the gravel.

Jayce asked, “In a rush, son?”


“To get to school?”

Zeke blinked. “Nuh-uh. I wanna ride the bus!”
