Someone To Trust


Lee turned toward her. “Megan?”
She had not turned the lights on, but the moon was shining brightly enough that she could read the confusion on his face.
She knew what she should do but she didn’t 5have the courage. Maybe she could wait. Sleep on it and maybe an answer would come to her. She couldn’t bear to let him go. Not now, not when she’d just found him. She looked up at his handsome face etched with lines of concern as he waited for her to 10 answer him. He was such a gentle, caring man. He was her gentle giant.
Without thought, Megan wrapped her arms around him and laid her head against his chest.
“I’m okay,” she said, her voice muffled against his chest. “I’m just tired.” That wasn’t untrue. She was tired and scared. And, she completely disliked Felicia. She supposed she should pray about that. Later.
As if reading her thoughts, Lee offered gently, “Look, I’m really sorry about Felicia. She can be…well…she can really be something else. I had no idea—”
“It’s okay—really. I shouldn’t have let it get to me and I shouldn’t have responded the way I did. I can’t picture you with someone like that.”
