Moving Forward #38 (9.1) by Julie Lynn Hayes
Kenny knocked at the cabin door about ten minutes later, and Roger admitted him. Marshall hadn’t gotten a good look at him before, just from a distance when he and Roger were dancing. He was at least Lee’s age, maybe even a little older. His close-cropped dark hair was liberally sprinkled with gray, as was the neatly trimmed goatee which framed a generous mouth.

“Hi, Dad,” said Kraig. He looked down at his hands and then slipped them under the blanket over his lap.
“How are you doing this morning, honey?” asked his mom. Lydia hurried over, so I moved out of her way and stood off to the side of the couch. She ran her hand over Kraig’s forehead. “Do you sleep well?”
“I’m fine. The alpha help me take a shower last night.”
