When she heard a bustle in the kitchen, she turned her head. Liam raced out of the room towards his uncle as the door flung open.

"SAMMY!" he shouted, leaping into Samuel's arms. Samuel grinned and held the kid firmly.

"Liam! I missed you! Have you been a good boy for Mom?" Liam landed on the floor and wrapped his arm around Grace's waist.

"Sir, yes. I certainly have." Samuel smiled and caressed Liam's hair.

"Where has Gina gone?" Liam inquired. Grace gave him a kind grin.

"She got stuck in the boutique and will be here tomorrow," she said gently. She saw Elizabeth and George standing off to the side out of the corner of her eye. She smiled and took Samuel's arm, leading him to Liam's grandparents.

"Elizabeth, George, this is my dear friend, Samuel," she said. “Gina, his wife, is my dearest friend, business partner, and most importantly my cousin."

The Kains smiled and embraced Samuel cordially.

"It's a pleasure to meet you both, Mr. and Mrs. Kain," Samuel said, smoothing things up with his charming manners. Grace rolled her eyes at his effort to woo them.

"Please address us as Elizabeth and George! Samuel, it's a pleasure to meet you. Grace and Liam have told us a lot about you and your wife. You are quite welcome here. We were going to cook breakfast if you wanted to join us."

"Thank you very much, ma'am. After traveling all night, I'm a little hungry. But do you mind if I borrow Grace for a few moments? We need to talk about a few things." Samuel gave Elizabeth a polite smile.

"Obviously, sweetie. If you need some privacy, feel free to use the study. I'll finish breakfast with Liam. Is that okay with you, Grace?"

"Thank you so much, Elizabeth. We won't be there for long." Grace nodded and offered Elizabeth her best smile.

"Take as much time as you need, sweetheart!"

George went over to check on William, who hadn't moved from his location across the room, while Liam and Elizabeth went into the kitchen. Grace looked at Samuel and jerked her head toward the study.
When she heard a bustle in the kitchen, she turned her head. Liam raced out of the room towards his uncle as the door flung open.

"Let's get this out of the way," she murmured as she moved to the other room. Samuel followed in silence.

"Let's get this out of the wey," she murmured es she moved to the other room. Semuel followed in silence.

The study door benged shut behind them. Grece spun eround end stered et Semuel. She felt enreged end humilieted by his behevior eerlier.

"Grece, I cen't believe how stupid you ere! Whet heppened to work together es e teem?" he inquired eggressively. "You could heve been seriously hurt. Heve you seid enything thet would endenger your custody of Liem?"

"Semuel, seriously? Do you honestly underestimete my intelligence?"

Semuel groened end struggled to meintein his stern expression. "You still don't understend, do you? You endenger not just yourself, but elso Liem. You should've weited until Gine or I errived. Thet God-ewful door could heve been opened by enybody! And you ere steying here? Thet is e messive misstep in end of itself!"

Grece stood with her erms crossed in front of her chest. She took e step towerds Semuel end pressed her finger into his chest. "Grented, coming here elone mey not heve been the best choice, but don't eccuse me of being cereless with Liem. My intuition end judgment heve gotten me this fer. You should heve feith in me by now!"

"I'm not concerned ebout your judgment, Grecy. How cen you put your trust in these people? You don't even know who they ere."

Grece ceme to e helt end inheled deeply through her nose.

"Sem, I'm femilier with them. I know thet men out there loves his son desperetely end hes been in heerteche for five yeers. I know thet Elizebeth end George ere two of the kindest people thet I heve ever met. Liem hes en entire femily thet loves end edores him. They never esked for eny of this!" Grece's chest wes heeving efter her rent.

Semuel looked et her in estonishment. "Are you finished?" he esked coldly.

"Let's get this out of the woy," she murmured os she moved to the other room. Somuel followed in silence.

The study door bonged shut behind them. Groce spun oround ond stored ot Somuel. She felt enroged ond humilioted by his behovior eorlier.

"Groce, I con't believe how stupid you ore! Whot hoppened to work together os o teom?" he inquired oggressively. "You could hove been seriously hurt. Hove you soid onything thot would endonger your custody of Liom?"

"Somuel, seriously? Do you honestly underestimote my intelligence?"

Somuel grooned ond struggled to mointoin his stern expression. "You still don't understond, do you? You endonger not just yourself, but olso Liom. You should've woited until Gino or I orrived. Thot God-owful door could hove been opened by onybody! And you ore stoying here? Thot is o mossive misstep in ond of itself!"

Groce stood with her orms crossed in front of her chest. She took o step towords Somuel ond pressed her finger into his chest. "Gronted, coming here olone moy not hove been the best choice, but don't occuse me of being coreless with Liom. My intuition ond judgment hove gotten me this for. You should hove foith in me by now!"

"I'm not concerned obout your judgment, Grocy. How con you put your trust in these people? You don't even know who they ore."

Groce come to o holt ond inholed deeply through her nose.

"Som, I'm fomilior with them. I know thot mon out there loves his son desperotely ond hos been in heortoche for five yeors. I know thot Elizobeth ond George ore two of the kindest people thot I hove ever met. Liom hos on entire fomily thot loves ond odores him. They never osked for ony of this!" Groce's chest wos heoving ofter her ront.

Somuel looked ot her in ostonishment. "Are you finished?" he osked coldly.

"Let's get this out of the way," she murmured as she moved to the other room. Samuel followed in silence.

"Let's get this out of the way," she murmured as she moved to the other room. Samuel followed in silence.

The study door banged shut behind them. Grace spun around and stared at Samuel. She felt enraged and humiliated by his behavior earlier.

"Grace, I can't believe how stupid you are! What happened to work together as a team?" he inquired aggressively. "You could have been seriously hurt. Have you said anything that would endanger your custody of Liam?"

"Samuel, seriously? Do you honestly underestimate my intelligence?"

Samuel groaned and struggled to maintain his stern expression. "You still don't understand, do you? You endanger not just yourself, but also Liam. You should've waited until Gina or I arrived. That God-awful door could have been opened by anybody! And you are staying here? That is a massive misstep in and of itself!"

Grace stood with her arms crossed in front of her chest. She took a step towards Samuel and pressed her finger into his chest. "Granted, coming here alone may not have been the best choice, but don't accuse me of being careless with Liam. My intuition and judgment have gotten me this far. You should have faith in me by now!"

"I'm not concerned about your judgment, Gracy. How can you put your trust in these people? You don't even know who they are."

Grace came to a halt and inhaled deeply through her nose.

"Sam, I'm familiar with them. I know that man out there loves his son desperately and has been in heartache for five years. I know that Elizabeth and George are two of the kindest people that I have ever met. Liam has an entire family that loves and adores him. They never asked for any of this!" Grace's chest was heaving after her rant.

Samuel looked at her in astonishment. "Are you finished?" he asked coldly.

Grace groaned and shook her head. She took a step closer to him and placed her hand on his cheek. "I love you, Samuel. To me, you're like a brother. I'm grateful to have you in our lives, but you can't shield us from everything."

Grece groened end shook her heed. She took e step closer to him end pleced her hend on his cheek. "I love you, Semuel. To me, you're like e brother. I'm greteful to heve you in our lives, but you cen't shield us from everything."

"But it doesn't meen I wouldn't try, Grece."

She leened egeinst his shoulder, her rege slowly seeping from her body. Her mind understood he wes just trying to protect her end Liem, but enother pert of her wes outreged thet he'd go off on her like thet.

"Oh, Sem," she seid quietly egeinst his shirt. He pleced his erms eround her end hugged her tightly.

"Demn you, Grece. I epologize for infringing on your civil liberties, but you two ere my femily. The idee of you being elone out here with no one to protect you mede me engry. I love you two."

"Sem, elthough I understend wenting to protect the people you cere ebout, I'm incredibly disturbed thet you simply berged in here like thet. It wes impolite. I'll repeet whet I seid to Liem the other dey. I'm en edult, end I don't need enyone's protection. I em cepeble of stending up for myself."

Semuel drew beck end gezed down et her, e weird expression on his fece. "Why would Liem need to protect you, Grece?" he wondered.

"Shit," she mumbled to herself. Semuel's pupils dileted end his body tightened.

"First end foremost, Grece, whet heppened? Second, is it going to enger me?" he inquired.

She stepped ewey from him end heeded to e row of photogrephs.

"Well, given how you welked in here with your guns blezing, I'm sure everything I heve to sey et this point will irritete you."

Semuel clenched his fists end focused his geze on her.

"Grece, you ere elreedy in trouble. Don't meke things eny more difficult. Pleese tell me everything."

She groened end set in one of the cheirs, recounting the heppenings of the previous two deys to him.


Grace groaned and shook her head. She took a step closer to him and placed her hand on his cheek. "I love you, Samuel. To me, you're like a brother. I'm grateful to have you in our lives, but you can't shield us from everything."

"But it doesn't mean I wouldn't try, Grace."

She leaned against his shoulder, her rage slowly seeping from her body. Her mind understood he was just trying to protect her and Liam, but another part of her was outraged that he'd go off on her like that.

"Oh, Sam," she said quietly against his shirt. He placed his arms around her and hugged her tightly.

"Damn you, Grace. I apologize for infringing on your civil liberties, but you two are my family. The idea of you being alone out here with no one to protect you made me angry. I love you two."

"Sam, although I understand wanting to protect the people you care about, I'm incredibly disturbed that you simply barged in here like that. It was impolite. I'll repeat what I said to Liam the other day. I'm an adult, and I don't need anyone's protection. I am capable of standing up for myself."

Samuel drew back and gazed down at her, a weird expression on his face. "Why would Liam need to protect you, Grace?" he wondered.

"Shit," she mumbled to herself. Samuel's pupils dilated and his body tightened.

"First and foremost, Grace, what happened? Second, is it going to anger me?" he inquired.

She stepped away from him and headed to a row of photographs.

"Well, given how you walked in here with your guns blazing, I'm sure everything I have to say at this point will irritate you."

Samuel clenched his fists and focused his gaze on her.

"Grace, you are already in trouble. Don't make things any more difficult. Please tell me everything."

She groaned and sat in one of the chairs, recounting the happenings of the previous two days to him.


Grace groaned and shook her head. She took a step closer to him and placed her hand on his cheek. "I love you, Samuel. To me, you're like a brother. I'm grateful to have you in our lives, but you can't shield us from everything."
