Hi,舡 she said, with a smile that tugged at Steven舗s gut like a fishhook, even though she was looking down at the child, not at him. 舠My name is Melissa O舗Ballivan. 舡 舠Matt Creed,舡 the boy responded, somewhat warily because he舗d been taught to be careful of strangers, and Steven felt another tug, this time at his emotions. He舗d given Matt the choice, when the adoption became final, of keeping his folks舗 last name舒St. John舒or taking on his new father舗s. And it still touched him that Matt, who remembered Zack and Jillie with a clarity Steven did everything he could to maintain, had decided to go by Creed.
The kitchen was worse than Steven remembered. Cupboards sagged. The linoleum was scuffed in the best places, where it wasn舗t peeling to the layer of black sub-flooring underneath. The faucets and spigot in the sink were bent. The refrigerator door was not only dented but peeling at the corners, and the handle dangled by a single loose screw. 舡 Matt asked, sounding a little worried now. So much for his interest in ghost hunting. 舠Not right away,舡 Steven said, suppressing a sigh. This place wasn舗t even fit to camp in, let alone call home.
Melissa rolled her eyes. 舡 she prompted. Andrea sashayed across the span of floor between the door and the desk and laid the little pink sheets on Melissa舗s blotter. 舠Just the usual boring stuff,舡 she said. Melissa glanced at the messages, chewing. There was one from her twin sister, Ashley. Ashley and her husband, Jack, were in Chicago, showing off their adorable two-year-old daughter at a family reunion. Olivia, Ashley and Melissa舗s older sister, was looking after Ashley舗s cat, Mrs. Wiggins, but there were long-term guests舒a group of elderly pals舒staying at the B&B, and Ashley, who owned the establishment, was counting on her twin to stop by once a day to make sure the wild bunch were still kicking.
