Chapter Twenty

LINCOLN

A smiling Molly is my favorite Molly. It means she’s happy, and that’s what I care about the most. Having Jenna here is good for her. The two were really close growing up—not as close as Molly and me, but if Molly wasn’t with me, she was with Jenna—and I know she misses her terribly. It broke Molly’s heart when Jenna moved so far away, but she knew it was the right move for her and Dillon. It was even harder when Jenna decided to not come back to Barre Vale after Dillon died, but again, Molly understood her reasoning. It was where the home was that she shared with her husband.

Childish and feminine laughter fills the backyard as Bryant and I sit on the back patio watching the kids and women pick barberries from the back corner of our property. Molly announced earlier that she wants to make barberry jam tomorrow, and of course, Gemma and Violet demanded they help. It’s almost dusk, so it won’t be much longer before they’ll be forced to call it a night.

Bryant chuckles at something one of the kids does, and I glance at him out of the corner of my eye. I have to admit, I was a little hesitant when he first showed up at the house a few hours ago with Violet in tow. Because of Molly and Jenna’s deep friendship, not to mention I consider Jenna a close friend, I feel protective of her and Violet. Jenna’s been through enough heartache with losing Dillon, the last thing she needs is a guy not worthy of her.

I kept a close eye on him during dinner, and it didn’t take long for me to realize my hesitation wasn’t necessary. It was plain as day on his face how much he loves Jenna and Violet. Which is damn good because I didn’t want to have to nail the guy if he were an asshole.

I get up from my chair and walk to the small cooler I have sitting off to the side. I look at him over my shoulder. “Want another beer?”

“Sure.”

I carry both back to the table and hand him one.

“Thanks,” he grunts, popping the top off.

“I couldn’t hear over the gushing going on at the table earlier,” I state with a chuckle. “You and Jenna set a date yet?”

He takes a pull from his beer then rests his forearm on the arm of the chair, the bottle dangling from his fingers. “Not yet. She wanted to wait until after our visit here to settle on a date.” He turns his head and gives me a knowing look. “I get the feeling it won’t be a long engagement, which I’m absolutely fine with. If it were up to me, I’d marry her tomorrow. I just wish the rush was under different circumstances.”

I look away from him, unable to hold his eyes. Everywhere I turn, I’m reminded I’m going to lose Molly. There’s no way Jenna would get married without Molly there.
