“How long will you stay?”
Letting out a sigh, he contemplated the question.
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.

OOOH I like this excerpt, sets the stage nicely
Thank you, Adriana. 🙂
His father had a good reason to invite him for a visit. I’m curious about the backstory behind their separation.
There’ll be a little more backstory coming soon. Thanks for stopping by, Aurora.
Whoa! The amnesia might actually make this a slightly easier experience for Connor. Fewer memories of the pain from all those years of his dad not being there for him. And some people really do not understand what they’ve lost until they’re nearly gone themselves.
Thanks kate. And, yes, many times in the book Connor will ask how his life would’ve been if he hadn’t moved to the UK
Nice easy way to give us some backstory and more context. Enjoyed the snippet!
Glad you did. Thanks Veronica.
I feel like there’s more behind all this.
Thanks Viv. Yes, there is 😉
Great snippet. And heavy finding out you have a son, then one about to die.
Thanks Jeff. Other way around, though, son finds out he has a dad who’s sick.
This feels… wrong somehow. I know I’m suspicious by nature, but the way this is happening while Connor cannot really connect memories together to something
LOL – got you hooked? 😉 Nothing really suspicious about it all. But life making life complicated.
I said before… You are truly evil. In the best of ways, of course.
