Kara took his hand. “This guy I know said not to play the what-if game. You seem to be a person who always makes sure others are safe, that’s why you left Ada at Make-Me-a-Bear. It’s usually safe. I think it’s more than your profession, it’s who you are or you wouldn’t be here and I would still be standing waiting for the bus.”
He nodded, not sure what to say. Kara said what he needed to hear, and hopefully earlier he’d done the same for her. It had been a long time since there was a woman he felt he could open up to.
They sat and listened to the rain patter on the windows. In a few minutes Kara’s head slumped down to rest on her arm. She’d fallen asleep. Jack drew her onto his shoulder. He didn’t want her to be cold.
As she slept, Jack tucked a strand of hair behind her ear. She mumbled something and frowned. He wanted to wipe the frown from her face. It was a good thing he hadn’t been at the store earlier. He would have broken those numb-nuts’ heads for scaring her and the kids
This woman had no police training to handle situations like she’d been thrown into, but Kara did everything he would have. She put the kid’s safety before hers.
Kara was someone he didn’t see every day. Brave. Different. Special.
He’d just stay awhile longer until she woke up, he didn’t want to disturb her sleep.
