Jackson pumped his fist eagerly. "Alright!"
Moudy couldn't help grinning as Jackson held up his little fish for the camera. He could already tell his son was a little fisherman!
Only a few moments passed before he had a reply. Dreaming about you.
Jason felt his heart thudding in his chest. This was no good. He knew this was no good. So why couldn't he stop? Tell me, he texted back.
Brenda responded with a series of texts that would make a sailor blush. He didn't respond, heading straight for a cold shower.
"I'm up, Dad," Macy told him, sliding from the lower bunk.
"Promise, Dad!" Macy told him.
"I know! Let's go for a hike!" Jackson said eagerly.
"Lead the way," Moudy told his son, motioning for him to take the lead.
Jackson lifted the space rock, oohing and aahing over how strong it made him look.
"Do you think it's worth a million dollars?" he asked eagerly.
Moudy chuckled. "Nah, something like this is probably less than $100." (AN: it was only worth $79. I was like Jackson, I thought they'd get millions! 😜)
Natalee just scrunched up her nose and shook her head.
Lacie glanced over her shoulder. "Do you mind? I'm trying to watch my show!" She turned back to the TV and turned the volume up. There were nurseries for that kind of thing!
Jason crossed her arms and turned towards the field. "No," he answered.
"Good," Coach Powers said, turning back to face August and Tommy. "Alright, August - throw the ball."
Jason scoffed. That's what happened when he wasn't out on the field, making the plays!
"Better," Coach Powers muttered under his breath.
"You sure are, Jackson!" Moudy said, fumbling the frisbee and dropping it to the ground. "Shoot!"
Jackson laughed. "I'm better than you!"
He stopped laughing when he caught the next throw with his head. "Oomph!" he said, reaching up to rub his head.
"Alright, maybe it's time to take a break," Moudy said, stooping down to grab the frisbee. "Ready to head back to camp and see what Mom's doing?"
Macy sighed as she got up from the table. "I was trying to do my homework," she said tightly. "Would it kill you to help out?"
Lacie scoffed. "I'm not the one who said I'd watch our bratty sister!"
Macy gasped indignantly. "She is not bratty! She's a toddler!"
Macy hurried upstairs with Natalee on her hip.
Coach Powers had even told him that he was his Superstar player. It was a dream come true!
"I've been waiting for you to come out," Brenda said huskily from nearby.
Jason sucked in a breath, surprised to see her here, in the flesh...
Jason had a split second to decide whether he was going to remain faithful to his wife or give in to temptation. He shouldn't, he told himself. This can lead nowhere good, he reminded himself.
Sensing the 'no' hovering on his lips, Brenda cocked her heads towards the stadium. "I've never had a tour. Wanna show me around the behind-the-scenes areas?" she asked coyly.
Now that was perfectly innocent, he told himself. He was just gonna show her around the stadium...
(AN: JASON! NOOOOOOOOOO! And then, just to cap off the mess that is this chapter....
