Juan was tired of waiting for a reply and he soon fell asleep on the bed.
Evan looked at Kyle who had his eyes shut tight. He sat down in front of the bed and tried to comfort him, saying, “Kindergarten is a new environment for you. You’ll take a while to adjust, but once you do, things will improve.” Evan reached out and stroked his injured face.
“Seeing as you’ve already used the best medicine, you’ll get better. Let this be a lesson to you, got it?”
Kyle ignored him and continued to feign being asleep. Evan leaned over and gently kissed his forehead. After tucking him in, he left the room.
Kyle watched the tall, stalwart figure disappear from view. In his heart, he knew that his Daddy loved him.
He secretly picked up his smartwatch and deleted the text that he had meant to send to Juan.
