She had a mouthful of toothpaste. “I just have to check on something,” he said, and climbed out of the bed. In his dinosaur pajamas (none too clean, with threadbare patches between the legs) and dangling his old stuffed animal (a mangy-looking giraffe), it was hard to match the words and attitude that came out of him with his little-kid face and body. She loved him a lot, but Jax was definitely a puzzle. ” she asked curiously. ” And he went out her bedroom door, depositing his giraffe unceremoniously on the floor.
This was about showing Jax she trusted him. And that he hadn’t been abandoned. Reluctantly, squeezing her eyes shut, she turned the lock and pulled open the door. And when she opened her eyes again, she had to clap a hand to her mouth to stifle a shriek. The screen was still closed, but there was only the thin mesh between them and him. And now she saw what she hadn’t been able to see from the other side of the glass: he wasn’t just wet. He was pouring. Water was running from his hair down his dark coat, dripping from his nose and ears and chin.
Cara was sure. On that point, she didn’t have to ask Jax. She thought she’d never go to sleep, she was so confused. She felt kind of dazzled, in fact, as though something she couldn’t understand had been flashed in her face. A side of the world she’d never seen. A shadow world beneath this one. Where is she. The water pouring off of him. It was a black whirlwind. But at the same time, deep inside it, there was a kernel of new hope … because maybe this was a sign that her mother really hadn’t just left their dad, or left them.
