Connor was struck by the intensity of his father’s words. I have Connor here. It was the way they were spoken, and the emotions behind them that confused him. Was there a bit of belonging or appreciation? Or did Connor read something into it when there wasn’t anything?
He watched Emily taking off the blanket. She waited patiently as Jack had another bout of coughing fits.
“Jack, did you take your medication this morning?” she asked.
He waved her off with his hand. “Nah, I’m sick of them. They’re making me drowsy and nauseous.”
“They don’t help,” Jack interrupted. “They delay the obvious. I wanna have a clear mind when I discuss matters with Connor.”
“You shouldn’t skip on the medication,” she persisted. “They help—”
“She’s not only as pretty as her mother, but just as stubborn,” Jack said with a grin.

I think Jack is correct to forego the meds if he needs to talk to Connor. There are powerful undercurrents in this snippet.
Thank you Aurora 🙂
Great snipet, I can see the scene so clearly. It’s true some meds have worse side effects than the thing they’re supposed to help.
Thanks Veronica. Yes, some meds are evil 😉
