Twenty-six years of marriage to Dr. Andrew Nash Douglas, Jr., had prepared Arianne for talks just like this with her young son. She’d had them for years with their other three children. The truth was harsh and too much for any thirteen-year-old to handle. Andrew and Arianne’s relationship had been plagued with lies from day one. Never allowing herself to forget that he was married when she started seeing him, Arianne knew he wouldn’t be faithful for very long, and twelve years into her marriage, she wasn’t either – the proof standing before her now with his big brown eyes. Brown eyes like his biological father. Neither of the two men suspected that Pike was Gregory’s child, and Arianne wasn’t telling. Fear and love kept that secret.
