“I know you mean well, and I appreciate your taking me in. I … I don’t know what I would have done.” He curled and uncurled his fingers. “I have no problem with your other rules, but I can’t do this one. No one’s ever ‘accepted me always.’ At some point, I’ll mess up. Maybe badly. Maybe it’ll be over India. You won’t want to be my mom then, so I’d rather not risk it.”
The air sucked from the room, and Elliot, clearly aware of it, pushed his chair back. “If I might be excused?”
Elliot Jersey turned up on the Russells’ doorstep, sick with the flu and filled with a lot of secrets. An abusive past. A knife fight with his dad. And a lot of self-doubt.
But from the start, though he’s grateful they’ve taken him in, it’s his interest in their daughter, India, that causes the most problems. A girl as great as her has no business with a boy like him and no amount of love and heavenly forgiveness will ever change that.
Especially not after their sexual attraction spirals them over the edge, into the biggest mistake of their lives.
A story of God’s grace and forgiveness by best-selling author SUZANNE D. WILLIAMS, co-founder of THE EDGE.
