Owen spent quite awhile thinking about the talk the family had a few days earlier. He had already contacted the university and turned down the scholarship and cancelled enrollment.
“If you aren’t going to be a doctor, what are you going to do?”
“I actually have two things planned. First, I’m going to write.It has been something that I have always enjoyed doing.”
“I have read some of the things you have written. They are really good.”
Owen often wrote little poems or short stories. He had several at the apartment.
“What kind of story do you want to write?”
“I was thinking about giving crime novels a try. I have plenty of stories in my family to use as a reference.”
Patrick did have to agree with that. “I can’t wait to read your first best seller.” He kissed Owen softly. “What is your second plan?”
“Since I am not going to medical school, I see no reason for us to wait.”
“Really? Are you sure.”
Owen nodded. He was a bit nervous. What if Patrick had changed his mind?
“Let’s go do it now.”
Owen was a bit surprised.
“You don’t want a big…?”
“No. My parents are both in prison. Your parents are against us being together. This is the only way we can do this without a problem.”
“You are right. Let’s do this.”
