Chapter 275: Home Base
After an early morning fishing trip, Jayce and the two oldest boys prepped breakfast. Silvery scales. Fillet knives. Cast iron. While waiting for the fish to fry, Naomi passed out apples and oatmeal scotchies.
Zeke lured Jude aside and unwittingly sat at the feet of Ethan and Alpheus, who listened in on their whispered conference. “Soon as Momma says so, I’ll show you the best parts,” Zeke promised. “Places we didn’t go see last time.”
Jude nodded eagerly.
Gazing around with a proprietary air, the older brother declared, “For us, for now … this’s home. Gotta know our way around!”
