Thank you for following along with Oscar as we learn his origins. Today, someone has told a lie, and he’s about to find out that it might not have been such a good idea. Plus, information comes to light that will finally help Oscar ensure Max’s future. But what will it cost him?
Two more weeks went by far too quickly. I spoke with the sisters who told me that Gina had moved out of their housing and left the order. When I touched base with Lilah, she informed me that Gina had been contacted by two doctors who wanted to help her. She was making great strides in coming to terms with what her ex had done, and the skin grafts were proceeding nicely. There would always be scarring, of course, but it would be much less than it had been.
There was also the matter of the apartment that Gina now lived in. Apparently a kind soul saw to it that she had a place to live, rent free, for as long as she wanted. She’d decided to go back to school—paid for—and was beginning to blossom. I was happy for her, even though I found I missed her.
Thank you for sticking with me as I post this! I hope that you’re enjoying Oscar and Max.
It’s time for Oscar to meet Gina’s ex. That should go well. 🙂
Laura McShea asked me if I would consider writing a short for Matt and Charlie from Runner, where Matt bottoms for Charlie, as he said he would at some point. I did. 🙂
