Considering her recent doubts, her pregnancy and her state of mind, Phoenix resigned as director at the domestic violence shelter...
Not long after she finished her resignation letter, CJ arrived at the farm with another teddy bear...
"You're going to have to help me out here...I want to hold you tight and never let you go. But I think that would just frighten you right now."
Tears misted Phoenix's eyes once more as she nodded.
He held out his hand. "I need to feel your touch. To know there's hope for us. That we can at least try..."
For long moments, Phoenix stared at CJ's outstretched hand.
Fear beat heavily through her veins. She could let the past control her as Jack had--still did from his grave. Or she could step forward in spite of her fear and take a chance.
Slowly, slowly, slowly, she inched her fingers toward CJ's hand. When her fingertips touched his, she didn't jump with fear. She closed her eyes and explored the slight callouses on the pad of his hand; felt the lines and indents on his palm.
He didn't try to capture her hand and hold her prisoner. He let her explore, then slowly draw away.
"I'll be back tomorrow," he whispered.
