(Previously: TIME TO CHANGE)
Jack Rory squirmed anxiously in the hard plastic seat of the airport terminal. He was still feeling conflicted about his decision to accompany Destiny on her trip to Florida.
It seemed to him as if everything was moving a little too fast. He didn’t know if he was ready to meet Destiny’s parents. And he was uncomfortable putting so much physical distance between himself and his therapist Lisa, and the group therapy sessions that had become such a source of support.
Then there was the matter of the baby. With Karen‘s whereabouts still unknown, he’d had to arrange for the nanny to take the baby for an open-ended period of time. He felt vaguely guilty, but at the same time, he had to admit she was probably better off where she was.
For her part, Destiny seemed cool as a cucumber as she waited for their flight to be called. He’d tried to pump her for details about her parents, but she’d demurred, simply smiling and saying, “You’ll meet them soon enough.”
