“Forgiveness is not forgiveness if it is worked for. Forgiveness is a gift. Trust is worked for.” –Bramble, from The Most Unlikely of Times
Alex knew that he’d gone too far on this one, knew it from the very bottom of his soul, but at the same time he wasn’t sorry.
After all, finding out that the more than questionable venture that you’d begun funding several years prior to your ‘younger’ sister even discovering that there was a fertility problem and somehow causing her to become pregnant via complete override of her husband’s own genetic code (supposedly) and actually doing it on purpose were two completely different things.
The outcome was the same, though, and he would never be sorry whenever he looked into the dark blue eyes of his nephew.
Alex knew that Mary would find out. She always did whenever it came to this kind of thing.
And if by some miracle she didn’t find out, then Warren certainly would.
The two of them were really quite perfect for one another and Alex would forever be grateful that neither really had the head to manage a business or his little business empire would be in a great deal of trouble.
As it was, he was still in trouble, but it would only be against his own peace of mind as a part of a family rather than as a mogul of the economy.
Funny how he would rather it be the other at this point…
Losing the trust of his sister would likely put a strain on their relationship, and though they would try to not let it affect any relationship between him and his nephew, it would. Whether they wanted to or not, children always picked up on this kind of thing.
“Alex, stop looking like your life’s about to end just because it’s your turn to change Terry’s diaper.”
