Chapter 3

She took a deep breath and got out of her car walking slowly up to the fenced-in property, releasing the latch and opening up the gate. She clenched her hands into tight balls of fist at her side as she stared at the two-story burgundy frame house. Except needing a couple of fresh coats of paint, it hadn't changed in the last six years since she had been here last. As she entered the gate and with each step bringing her closer and closer to Mrs. Ellis front door, her heart began pounding in her chest. She swallowed against a couple of hard lumps attempting to keep her composure. She huffed and then she puffed. She couldn't believe that she was standing here again. She was going against her own word. She had promised herself that after that fiasco in court that she would never bother Jacob Ellis or his family again. After that day in court she had taken her Aunt Shirley's words literally to heart that "Forget it… You can just forget about him from now on. From now on this is your baby " But how could she ignore her son who desperately wanted to know his father. How could she live with herself if she didn't at least try for Jayden's sake? Jayden deserved that much. Thinking that way, she had buried her pride and broken her own word and sought out her son's paternal family. She knew that if anyone could get in contact with Jacob, it would be his mother. She could feel her breathing rapidly increasing as she noticed her hand slightly trembling as she lifted it knocking on the door.
