While enduring a roller-coaster of emotions Wisdom found her self distracted when she would pick back up on doing the things she loves. Her garden seemed to have grown weak from neglect over the past weeks. Wisdom focused on the fact that despite the painful void deep inside her nothing was going to change the fact that she is in fact having to face the world alone only seeing Preston and Skyler in her dreams.
Wisdom heard Andrew in the yard talking. “Andrew are you speaking to me?” She asked walking closer. “No this horse is missing her best friend and I was trying to comfort her. I’m not what she’s expecting and she’s getting aggressive with me.” He tried to brush her and she shook him off. “Maybe you should try, ” Andrew suggested. “ME, ummm I’m not sure I’m what she wants either.” Wisdom questioned hesitating to touch the horse. “Please try, here is her brush and start high up on her back and brush down towards her hooves.”
Wisdom took the brush and when to start brushing the horse Skyler loved unconditionally. “Hey girl, I know I’m not Skyler but we both loved her and we both miss her.” Wisdom’s words didn’t break her down to tears. “There you go Wisdom your doing great.” Wisdom was amazed at how still the horse stood. “Did Skyler ever name her horse?” Wisdom asked Andrew not remembering the horse having a name. “She called her Baby.” Andrew said with a smile. “I like that name… Baby.” Wisdom got a few other lessons. She learned what Baby’s favorite snack was, what saddle she preferred, and how to clean her hooves.
“Wisdom how are you feeling, I don’t want you to feel over worked.” Andrew would hate if she had another episode and had to be admitted to the hospital. “I feel fine thank you. I’m just happy to not be in this house alone. I would go mad if I had to but you need to move on with your life and not baby sit me. I will be fine. Your welcome to come over when ever you want and you will be teaching the baby how to ride and care for the horse.” Wisdom said with a grin. “I like being here… My sister and her husband handle the ranch while I’m not there and your a good friend. I want to be here for you.”
“How much longer till we meet him?” Andrew rubbed Wisdom’s belly. With her being in hiding not many people even know she’s pregnant unless they have heard the latest gossip in town. “I’m due any day. I feel huge, I don’t remember feeling this big with Skyler’s pregnancy.”
“Oh man Wisdom, need help getting your garden going again?” Andrew chuckled. “Yeah, I didn’t realize how bad it was till today. I need to weed them you can water them.” Andrew was happy to have Wisdom help him with something since she’s been feeling as though she’s been a burden on him and his life.
“Wisdom do you think you will date or marry again?’ Wisdom thought about the question presented to her. “I’m not sure to be honest. But I’m eloping and keeping him under lock and key so nothing can happen to him.” She said in a teasing way. Andrew added, “Your just a great girl and I would hate to see you give up only because everything fell the way it did. You deserve to be happy.” Wisdom soon added, “I deserve to have Preston and Skyler here and you living your own life but life isn’t fair that way and I’m stuck here trying to pick up broken pieces of my heart. I worry everyday that I’m going to mess up and my son will end up in the same place my brother and Skyler ended up.”
“Wisdom you can’t think like that…” Andrew looked at Wisdom. He’s had feelings for her for some time now but always knew Preston was in the picture. He’s gone and wants to make his move but is afraid its to soon. Wisdom ignored his advice and focused on weeding her plant. “Don’t forget to water the tree’s too.” She stated changing the topic even more.
They finished tending the garden and headed inside. “Mind if I take a nap?” Wisdom asked Andrew feeling tired. “No, but make sure you take your medicine.” Wisdom rolled her eyes at Andrew. He is so considerate. Wisdom got to her room and rested. Andrew finished cleaning the kitchen and headed outside to get the mail. When he heard Wisdom cry out. He dropped the mail and ran to her side.
