Chapter 5

The trip to Fayetteville wasn't as unpleasant as she had anticipated. In fact, Giddon was actually pleasant and entertaining. When they reached the house, she invited him in for a cup of coffee. She had some money tucked away in a cookie jar in the kitchen and she intended to pay him something, whether he liked it or not. He and Sarah had done far more for her than could have been expected.

When she brought his coffee into the living room, she found him holding their family photo. He glanced up as she entered and turned the photo around so that she could see the picture. "I found it upside down and figured it was the boyfriend at the bottom of your troubles. Why didn't you tell me?"

She glanced at the photo in his hand. It was the one the paper had used with the article about the wreck. She shrugged. "Does it matter?"

He frowned. "It does to me." He replaced the photo on the end table. "Now I understand why you were crying. I wish I had known. I could have . . . would have been more of a comfort. I had no idea."

She sighed. "No. I guess I'd be upset, too, if someone barged into my life that way. It was nice of you to help me out . . . even if it was grudgingly."

His color deepened. "I didn't begrudge you. I was glad to have you stay the night. Mom was delighted, and Tammy took to you right off." He hesitated, looking down at his feet as he spoke. "I'm afraid I wasn't very sympathetic, though."
