Chapter 278: Other Mister Ranger
While Zeke and Jude splashed around, a man paused to watch. Ethan’s glance became a double-take. This must be the second Caretaker.
Zeke blurted, “Mister, are you an Indian?”
“At the moment, I’m a park ranger.”
“Do you know stuff?”
“Knowing stuff is part of my job.”
“You’re wading in Bear Creek. This tree is a red oak. And there are three deer watching you and your brother catch crayfish. If we sit here and hold very still, they’ll come down for a drink.”
Zeke’s eyes widened. “You’re mostly amazing!”
Dark eyes smiled. “Also part of my job.”
