Raelyn handed Zaiden the envelope from the lab. After their doctor appointment, they had picked up Patrick from Rowana for their usual time with him.
They had the paternity test done without Rowana knowing. Now, a few weeks later, the results were sealed in the envelope that Zaiden was holding.
“Are you sure you want to know, love?”
Zaiden shook his head. “I don’t, but if I don’t, I will always wonder.”
Raelyn watched him as he read the letter from the lab.
Zaiden read it twice then sat it on the table.
Raelyn saw the tears in Zaiden’s eyes. She wrapped her arms around him to comfort him. “I’m sorry, love.”
“I’m going to lose him. She won’t let me see him.”
Raelyn knew how much Zaiden loved the boy. It was breaking her heart to see him so upset. “She knows that you love Patrick. Maybe if you talk to her…”
Zaiden shrugged. “I can try, but I won’t hold my breath.”
Raelyn took his hand and pulled him toward the door. “Let’s go talk to Daddy. Maybe he has an idea that will help.”
Zaiden didn’t know how Tony or anybody could help with this, but he went anyway.
