- “You know my father?” I said in a stunned whisper. I can feel my throat clogging with pent-up emotions. All I’ve ever wanted was to find my father, and this man is telling me that my father not only knows about me, but he is waiting for me.
- “See,” Val’s voice rings excitedly in my head, “This isn’t the same life! Your father never knew you in your first life. This life is different.”
- I feel like Val’s excitement is more about the possibility of Lachlan being different than about my father knowing me, but I chose to ignore that for now. I don’t want to argue with her again. Not when I’m standing before a connection with my father.
