Chapter Fourteen

“Boundary lines are drawn because of their genetics, but they’re also made to be crossed” 5-Star Review

Linda lowered me gently to the backpack. “You’re burning up.” She was right.

“We should have stopped earlier. I’m sorry.”

Porter came running back without his gear. “Okay, come here.” He lifted me up like a baby. He nodded down to the bag and Linda picked it up with some difficulty. It was so heavy compared to hers.

“I can do it.” But it lacked confidence.

“No you can’t. Let me take you.” His arms wrapped around me a warm serpentine embrace.
