9. Really Truly

"Your Father told me a little bit about you, and your, uh, situation." George said.

I nodded. "Yes."

"So you are becoming a mother to these children?"

"Basically, yes."

"And I am supposed to be their Father?" 

I laughed a little. "Yes."

"Wow, three younger brothers. You must have been relieved when Hannah came along."

I laughed a little. "There were actually two more; James and Alexander, twins. They would be 10. They died just a few years ago."

"I guess you only got a few years with your parents to yourself." George laughed at his own joke.

"Yes."

"So, what's it like? I have always wanted to be a Father. I used to play with dolls when I was really little. Now horses are my thing." George laughed, nervously.

I thought for a bit. "It's hard, I guess.... not a lot of time to yourself." I laughed a bit. It was true.

 

"But why would you give up that time?"

"It's worth it in the end. I love my family all so much, and I'm so lucky to have them. I would do anything just to make them happy." I respond.

"Really?" 

"Truly."
