Chapter 224: A Cord of Three Strands
Ethan helped escort a line of five-year-olds to their classroom. Once Zeke was through the door, he caught sight of his best friend from church. “Jasper! You came to school?”
“Gramma says I gotta.”
“Me, too,” Zeke sighed. “Dad said to learn lotsa stuff. And not eat paste.”
Ethan was smiling as broadly as his charge when Zeke turned and goggled at a familiar freckled face. Flapping his arms excitedly, he hollered, “Hey, I know you! Timothy!”
By the time the teacher settled everyone down enough to start class, Zeke, Jasper, and Timothy had decided to be inseparable.
