After a short glance out of the window Felicity turned
around to the kids and told them, “I think daddy’s back home.”
Immediately Emmy and Tommy got up from their chairs
and ran towards the door to welcome their father back home. Felicity dropped
the towel to the kitchen counter and lifted Millie from her high chair. The
little girl immediately grabbed a curl of her mother’s hair and started sucking
at the strand of hair while Felicity was carrying her daughter out of the
kitchen to follow Emmy and Tommy.
As soon as she had directed the car into the garage
and turned off the engine, Felicity gripped the steering wheel a little more
tightly, focusing her eyes on the rearview. There was nothing extraordinary and
yet she kept her eyes on what she saw while the garage door closed behind her.
Only when she was safely locked in the garage, Felicity let go of the steering
wheel and leaned her head back with a sigh, closing her eyes.
