I’d spent the last five years learning from some of the best doctors and surgeons so I could further my career. I’d also spent that time homesick and missing the only place I’d ever call home. When Eastport General Hospital offered me a position I took it. I was so happy to be returning home, but returning home met revisiting the ghosts of my past.
Brielle, my little sister’s best friend was that ghost. We’d had a secret fling the summer before I left, a friends with benefits relationship, no strings attached. Despite that my feelings for her grew. Now I find out that she is now a mother. The woman I had crushed on for years was someone else’s woman and I had no one to blame but myself, after all, I’d left her here.
Only the joke was on me, Brielle didn’t have another man’s child, she had my child. A child I’d known nothing about. How could she not have told me? I didn’t know if I should have been angry or excited….because bottom line was, I was a Dad.
