Welcome back to another chapter of Random Branches! In the last chapter Canderous found out who his biological mother was and had a heart to heart with Immortal Council member Nicholai Tritten. At the very end of the chapter, Bailey got word that her father had passed away. And now, on with the story.
Bailey got to house her step-mother and half-siblings lived in after taking some time to cry on Atton’s shoulder. She used the key that her father had given her and stepped into the house and located her step-mother and gave her a hug.
“I… I can’t do it, Bailey,” Latanya cried. “Do what, Latanya?” “Raise… raise…” Latanya started before losing control again.
“Yes, you can. You’ve raised them this far. You can raise them the rest of the way.”
“I did that with Chester. I can’t do it alone. You take them.”
