BLOG TOUR!!! UNWRITTEN...BY CHELSEA M. CAMERON
“It is very nice to meet you, Blair. I hope this little tyke hasn’t been too much trouble.” And then he smiled and I had to sit down.
“Uh, no. Not at all. He’s been a perfect,” I choked on my own air, “a perfect gentleman.” I wasn’t going to snitch on him for being disrespectful, but I was sure Ada would get right on that. Out of the corner of my eye I could see her pursing her lips. For a nanny, she didn’t seem as if she liked kids very much.
“See, Daddy? I was good.” I didn’t think Drake could grasp what a wink meant yet, or else I would have totally shared one with him.
I wanted to know if “Daddy” had a name, but it seemed awkward to ask.
“Drake and I were just filling out paperwork so he can get his very own library card.” I glanced down and saw Ada had filled out all the information but had neglected to sign the form. “I just need an adult’s signature to get the card made.” I handed him the clipboard and a pen, hoping the expression on my face was neutral. Score. Now I could see what his first name was.
“Well now, your very own library card. Are you going to take very good care of it and not lose it? Only very special children get to have library cards,” Drake’s father said.
“I take good care of it, Daddy. I’s promise,” Drake said holding up his pinky. His father leaned down and linked his pinky with his son’s, pulling Drake’s hand up to his mouth to kiss it. Then Drake did the same thing with his father’s hand. My heart turned into liquid and I had to look away to wipe my suddenly watering eyes because I couldn’t deal with how sweet it was.
I turned and Ada caught me again with her judgey eyes.
“Okay, I’m going to go get this card made, alright, Drake?”Author Links:
