Family and connection and memories.
I couldn’t imagine enduring such hardship for the rest of my life.Call my old number. The captain left a message on the machine when he couldn’t get through. I told my father I’d ring him when we docked. He’ll be expecting a call if he got the recording.
He took a deep breath. I haven’t told you my full story, Stel, but my father will. He has everything he needs to clear my name. I don’t know why it happened. I don’t even really understand how. But there’s a reason why I was freed after being sentenced to life. If the English courts can overthrow a conviction like that, then that same information will convince these assholes that I’m not going to murder downtown Sydney. That I had a reason. That my sentence was revoked. That my record should’ve been expunged. My father will help us be together.I—I— The thought of talking to the man who’d raised Galloway into such an incredible person intimidated me. Who was I? I was just the woman who’d crashed with him. The woman who’d done such a bad job of setting his broken ankle he moved with a permanent limp.But I’m also the woman who claimed his heart.
The woman who carried his child.The woman who loved him more than anything else on earth.
If that didn’t make me worthy...what did?
G’s lips touched mine, kissing me hard. Promise me, you’ll call him.There you are! The blonde from the slope bounced over, her tits hanging out of her triangle top.
Hey. I forced a smile as she looped an arm around my waist.You know, I think I’m going to—
Oh, come on. The bar is right over here! she said, turning us around.Ice hit my bare chest and slid down my abs to my trunks as I sucked in a lungful of air. Holy shit, that was cold.
