As Kevin’s tail lights disappeared, you tried to release the tension your body held.
You felt a hand against the small of your back and turned to see James beside you. Even the sight of him made you feel better.
“What does he have on you?” he asked quietly.
“What?” you questioned in shock.
“It’s the only explanation. You’re a strong, independent, successful business owner and an incredible mom to Caleb. The only reason that asshat would think he’d have a leg to stand on in court was if he was holding something over your head.” He said it so matter-of-factly.
You were stunned, but sighed in surrender. “He is.”
Leading James by the hand, you walked him into the stables and closed the doors. He settled beside you on a blanket-covered bale of hay and waited patiently.
Taking a deep breath and lacing his fingers with your own, you began.
