Hope hurries over to Gabe when he returns to give him a hug.  She was so happy that he was in their lives again and living with them!  She couldn’t help but hope that someday her parents would fall in love and get married and they would be a family.

Gabe laughing:  “Sweetie, I’m all sweaty.  Let me get a shower first.”

Hope:  “I don’t mind, dad!”

Kinsley watches them hug and isn’t sure how she feels about it and ignores the way it tugs at her heart strings.

Gabe stops running to sit at a park bench so he can think.  He’s not ready to go back, looking at her clouded his mind and made it hard for him to stay focused.

He wanted Kinsley in his life and not just as the mother of his daughter.

Sighing, he knows he made a huge mistake losing control with her.  That she used sex as an emotional barricade to keep him at arm’s length.  

He couldn’t let her do that again.

He wasn’t willing to give up on her, she’s never had anybody fight for her and he had every intention of showing her that she was worth fighting for…..

Hope:  “Mom……do you like him?”

Kinsley hesitating:  “Sure, as a friend.”

Hope:  “But mom…..”

Kinsley:  “Let it go, Hope.  I’m going to make breakfast.”

Hope watches her mother walk away and sighs.  Why did her parents have to be so silly?  She wasn’t blind!  She could see the way they looked at each other when they thought nobody was watching.

A little later, Kinsley is still on the couch.

She’s not waiting for him to come back or anything.

She’s not!

Hope:  “Mom?  Where did dad go?  I wanted to show him my science project.”

Kinsley:  “Gabriel went for a run.  What do you want for breakfast?”

Kinsley watches him run off with a sad look on her face.

He’d been so open with her from the moment he’d crashed back into her life.  She felt him closing himself off, protecting himself from being hurt by her.

Her heart filled with sadness over the loss…..

Why did she keep pushing him away when all she really wanted was to pull him closer?

Gabe leans forward and drops his head into his hands, deep in thought…..

Kinsley:  “What?”

Gabe shaking it off:  “Nothing.”

Kinsley:  “What are you thinking?”

Gabe:  “Nothing, I’m going for a run……”

Gabe:  “Sure you can resist me that long?”

Kinsley:  “Absolutely.”

Gabe feeling a little as if the floor has just dropped out from under him:  “If that’s what you really want?”

Kinsley:  “I do.”
