Because the bunny just wouldn’t go away … two timestamps have been written. One ended up way longer than anticipated so I’ll post that tomorrow - ohh a weekend fic :)
For those catching up on this particular Afternoon Fic … Start Here the chapters do connect to each other.
John stepped next to Judge Gates, watching his son run and chase the soccer ball. He had never thought to have a family, the whole wife, children, dog with a white picket fence. Instead he had ended up with reclusive billionaire, Attila the Hun, Rexy and a Museum.
“I wasn’t sure I’d ever see you again.” Judge Gates kept his eyes on his son, he had a feeling he would be doing that for a long while.
“Yeah, I’m, not great at keeping in touch with people,” John shrugged.
“I don’t know how to thank you.”
“You don’t need to say anything.” He assured him. "I’d prefer it actually.“
Gates shifted, taking in the man next to him. The one who appeared out of nowhere to help him save his son. If it hadn’t been for him, they would both be dead. He had no idea what John did or how, but he was indepted to a point. "Look I don’t know exactly what you do, or how you’re doing it but I know that if people ever find out when they find out there won’t be anything I can do to protect you.”
“I know Judge.” John gave him a soft smile. "But there is one thing you can do for me.“
The story centers on Meg Murry, a young girl traumatized by the disappearance of her scientist father years before, who finds herself on an interplanetary journey with a schoolmate and her younger brother to find him. They are aided on their quest by a trio of supernatural beings, Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling) and Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey).
As THR first reported, Disney has made the race of L’Engle’s main characters black or mixed race, making the Murry family now a mixed-race one.
The studio is currently looking for a non-white actor to play the schoolmate, Calvin O’Keefe.
