“Babycakes?” I muttered with my jaw dropped. It looked kinda like him but kinda not. Was it really him? He smiled at me showing bits of seaweed in his teeth. His face glistened with a bit of a damp sliminess and his skin was pale.
“Hello hot stuff.” He grinned as he opened his arms waiting for me. “I missed you.”
Half because he looked pretty dang gross and half because I had it set in my mind that he was dead I hesitated. “Where have you been?”
Frowning and dropping his arms he looked broken hearted that I had not run to him. I couldn’t take it any longer. Rushing him nearly pushed him over as I threw my arms around my husband. “Brodie I missed you.” Tears welled up in my eyes and fell down my cheeks onto his wet armor.
He felt cold. “I think you need a hot bath.” I told him as I looked up at his face trying to brush his wet hair away from his eyes.
“I think I’ve had more time in water than I ever wanted. I’ll pass thanks.” He replied with a warm smile. “How about we have some hot chocolate instead?”
My weakness. He knew me so well. I was a little unsure about his strange appearance but for now I would enjoy having my heart swell with the joy of my family being whole again. Altana was smiling on me I could just feel it glowing from my insides out. I would tell him about our new baby as soon as Yamari arrived with her. He and I had a lot of catching up to do.
