3:13 Go The Distance

Owen was on the phone with Maeve. She loved the book and wanted him to go on a book tour with some other authors to promote the book.

“I don’t know if this is a good time, Maeve. Dakota will be having the baby soon.”

“The tour is only two weeks. Dakota still has a few months, right?”

“Two months.”

“You’ll be home in time to watch that kid pop out of the oven.”

This woman definitely had an interesting way of stating things.

“I will talk to Patrick about it and let you know tomorrow.”

Patrick waited for Owen to hang up the phone. “What was that about?”

“Maeve wants me to go on a two week book tour to promote the book. With the baby coming soon and so much still to do, I don’t think this is the right time to go away for two weeks.”

“Would you go if the baby wasn’t due so soon?”

Owen nodded his head. “Yes. The book needs promoted. I am still an unknown author, and the tour could change that.”

“Then go. I can handle things here while you are gone. The other apartment is ready and we don’t have a lot of stuff to move.”

“What about the nursery?”

“I will see if your dad can help. The landlord won’t let us paint or anything so it’s just putting together the furniture we already bought. We can move things around once you get back.”

“I wish you could come with me.”

“Me too, but I have things here that I need to do. I can’t get the time off work.” He put his arms around Owen. “It’s only two weeks. It will go fast. We can Facetime each other every day. It will be fine. This will be good for you and your book.”

“I hope so. I am going to be miserable without you.”

“No you won’t. You will meet other authors and make new friends. Just don’t go falling in love with any of them.”

Owen kissed Patrick softly. “Never. You are the only person I could ever love.”
