And without even thinking twice about it, she stood on her toes and placed a kiss on his cheek. “Give me a call if you need to talk.”
Too scared he might have seen her blush, she didn’t linger but opened the door and walked to her car. What had made her kiss him? What would he think of her?
Emily started the engine and drove off to her next patient. Busy with looking after the other patients in the afternoon, her mind was on the job while sorting medication, checking vital signs, or even giving some of them a wash.
Once finally home later that day, she grabbed one of her mum’s lasagne out of the freezer and heated it up in the microwave.
“The love of my childhood is back in town. Could be his twin, too, for all I know,” she mumbled to Boomer, the orange and white cat rubbing against her leg. She gave the cat a quick rub on the belly and was rewarded with a content purr.
A few minutes later, she sat in front of the television with her meal when the phone rang.

Inside, she said goodbye and walked to the front of the house. Connor followed her to the door, but before he opened it, he asked quietly, “How long does he have?”
She met his gaze. He still had those beautiful chocolate brown eyes he’d had as a boy. He wore his hair shorter these days, with the very first few grey hairs. Life couldn’t have been all that easy on him. Although he had his father’s rugged looks, everything in his appearance screamed money. The clothes, his watch, the way he moved, and the English accent was clean as well. The stubble on his face was the only thing that showed neglect, but she assumed that was still a leftover from the travel.
A small sigh escaped her when she noticed that her girl crush was still in full swing. Although it shouldn’t have been. After all, he’d been on her mind often, at least while going out with a man. She rolled her eyes at herself at the idea of comparing her date with a six-year-old boy. No wonder she’d still been single.
“The doctors have given him six months, but he’s very stubborn and doesn’t take his medication.” She hitched a shoulder. “I suppose any time.”
“I appreciate you looking after him,” he said.
“We’re all looking after him. He’s been good to us all those years. We’re simply returning what was given.”

The way he spoke made Emily think there was also a slight pain in his voice. Another dead end in the conversation.
The first raindrops fell, and she checked her watch.
“I’d better be going. I’ll be back on Wednesday.”
Connor said his thanks before Emily turned to leave. She was startled, though, by Jack’s expression. The sadness stored from over twenty years was obvious in that moment. He must’ve heard their conversation, and she thought back on what had been said.
It was the surname. She was sure it would’ve pained Jack to know that his only son wasn’t carrying his surname. Emily blinked, fighting back tears.
“Jack,” she said, walking towards him. “I think you’d better return back inside. I’ll be back on Wednesday.”
The old man nodded and tried to stand up. Connor rushed to his side to help, and seeing the two next to each other, she was surprised by the resemblance between them.

Disappointed, she assented. And understood. After all, he’d only stepped off a plane after twenty-four hours two days ago, to see his father for the first time in such a long time. “No worries. I let the boys know. Skye moved away a few years ago.”
His look told her that the name didn’t ring a bell, either.
“You’ve really been hit hard with jetlag.”
He scratched the back of his neck. “Sorry for that.”
“Is there a Mrs. Delaney?” Emily tried to sound as casual as possible, but wasn’t sure whether it’d come across that way. The expression on his face revealed a touch of disbelief.
“You should know better than me. After all, you’ve known Jack longer than me.”
Emily didn’t know whether to laugh or cry. “I meant you,” she finally replied in a whisper, hoping not to put more salt in what seemed an open wound.
The expression on his face changed to pained, his lips turned downwards. “My surname is Walsh. And no, there’s no Mrs. Walsh.”

As soon as Jack had told Emily earlier in the week that Connor was coming to Fermosa Bay, her whole body had reacted. She’d laughed at herself for still having a crush on him, but even at the tender age of six years, he’d been the love of her life. They’d spent hours at the beach, searching for shells, building sand castles, or swimming in the sea. The famous five of Fermosa Bay, as they had been called: Emily, Connor, Ethan, Niall, and Skye.
Then there’d been the accident, and she’d never seen Connor again until today.
The simple touch of her hand on his shoulder brought back all the memories and the fun they’d had.
Yet, it seemed they were only memories for her. The fun and mischief were nowhere to be seen in his eyes. Standing in front of her, he seemed distant and withdrawn. The constant grin he’d worn on his face was gone.
She tried hard to put on a smile. “I’m sure the others would love to catch up with you. How about a drink at the pub tomorrow night?”
Connor nodded. “Sure. Just give me a bit longer to settle in.”

Jane, Connor’s mother, opposed the idea of him travelling to the other end of the world, but something inside him yearned to find out more about his paternal family. At the same time, it scared the hell out of him.
He crossed one foot over the other and spread his arms wide on the railing. “I’ve taken a year off work.” With a shrug, he added, “I suppose a few months. See how I go.”
Emily stepped closer and when she placed her hand on his shoulder, an unexpected jolt went through him. “Are you all right?”
Wasn’t that the one million dollar question?
No, he wasn’t. Not even close. Several weeks ago, he’d said goodbye to the woman who’d cheated on him and a few days ago, he’d said farewell to his mother and Duncan, the man he’d called father for almost twenty years. Embarking on a flight to the other end of the world, Connor had been determined to find out about the first seven years of his life.
His mouth edged up as he replied, “Of course, I am. Just a bit tired.”

When he’d received Jack’s phone call, telling him he was his father, Connor had thrown words at him he’d immediately regretted before hanging up without listening to anything Jack had to say. Thank God, Jack had been persistent and called again the next day. Consumed with curiosity, he listened for half an hour, making notes. Jack had provided him with all the details, date of birth, name, and even provided him with a copy of his birth certificate and a few photos via email afterwards.
Three hours later, his mother had confirmed Jack’s claim to be his father. It’d been a tumultuous few weeks. They’d talked a couple of times on the phone, and finally Jack had told him about his terminal cancer and the real reason for finding him: he had invited Connor to Fermosa Bay to spend some time with him.

He’d been barely over seven years old when he and his mother had left Australia and made their new home in London. There were vague memories in the back of his mind about the first days in school in London. He’d been the newcomer and learnt quickly to adapt and make new friends. He and his mother had lived with his grandparents until she had found a job and had been able to afford a small apartment.
Squeezing his eyes shut, Connor was desperate for the slightest bit of memory.
Anything.
But he came up empty.
“Your dad appreciates that you’ve come here.”
Connor shot around and met Emily’s gaze. For a brief moment, he lost himself in her eyes, inhaling the subtle scent of her perfume. He had no idea how to reply to her comment, so he turned back to watch the virga above the sea.
“How long will you stay?”
Letting out a sigh, he contemplated the question.

Her laugh was genuine and beautiful. “Well, you know, Niall showed me his secret spot at the beach.”
“Niall?”
“I can’t believe you don’t remember Niall.”
“He can’t even bloody remember Ethan,” Jack growled.
Emily stared at Connor. “You’re kiddin’, right?”
Suddenly the humorous expression on her face changed, but he couldn’t figure out what she was thinking. It bugged him that he wasn’t able to remember anything from his childhood here in Australia, but it annoyed him even more to see the disbelief in these two. The next few weeks were going to be a steep learning curve about his past.
She stared at him for a long moment. Although he wasn’t coy when it came to women, it made him uncomfortable, and he turned to look out across the ocean again. There was a big container ship on the horizon, moving along at snail’s pace. It was barely visible in the distant, despite being near the coast. Closing his eyes, he compared himself to a ship in the ocean, so close to everyone, yet out of everyone’s reach as he once again wondered what had happened. Or why he was here, at the other end of the world, twenty-four flight hours away, about nine time zones ahead of his family back in England.
His father’s and Emily’s voices were distant as Connor tried his hardest to remember anything about this place. Remember somebody called Ethan or Niall.
But he came up with nothing. Zilch.
Not even the mention of a kiss triggered any memories.

I started this story a few weeks ago and I hope you’re enjoying it so far. I’m not sure where it’s heading, so any comments / critique is more than welcomed. Today, we get to know “the Park Ranger” a little more.

Jesse Parker dragged his hand through his hair. There had been so many things wrong with the situation in front of him. The fact that the young girl had stopped him in the middle of nowhere didn’t sit well with him, but on the flipside, he was glad she had, because organising a search party wouldn’t have been on his favourite things to do for a Friday afternoon either. God knows if anybody had noticed that they’d been gone for a while, considering they were new in town. He made a mental note to ask Melody about the two. She’d given them the directions to the Cook Waterfall carpark, he was sure she’d know a little more about them.
And then there was the mother, who despite the shortage of breath and the obvious lack of fitness did something to him, he wasn’t sure how to handle or even interpret.The mother. He didn’t even know her name.
Holding out his hand, he said, “Jesse Parker. Nice meeting you.”
She looked up at him and a slow smile spread across her face, but she ignored his hand. “Nice meeting you, too. More than nice, if I may say so. I’m Lexie and this is my daughter Zoe.”
Sliding his hand into his pants pocket, he turned to look at Zoe. “I’m not lecturing you, but please promise me not making a habit out of stopping strange cars.”
The girl nodded enthusiastically. “Promise.”
“Okay. Let’s get this roadkill off the road and then get you back to your car.”

 

Thanks for all your comments,
I do appreciate each single one of them!
