Previously on Heir Force: Kate Reflects at Work
Spencer stood inside the door, thinking about what he thought Kate felt. Spencer knew why John hadn’t used the ‘love’ word with Kate and he also knew that’s what she was waiting for. But she was too proud to probe John. Spencer hoped John would step up to the plate when he returned from Iraq in three-and-a-half months. Spencer found it difficult to keep John’s secret and even harder to keep it from Kate.
Spencer followed Kate a few seconds behind her and headed in the opposite direction for his Acura. He tried to push his feelings for Kate aside. He knew John beat him to her and had to respect that. But he also knew Kate would be in for a shock when John returned. Because Spencer was going to urge John to tell Kate his secret. They couldn’t keep their relationship in limbo forever because of his secret.
Spencer worried how Kate would react if something happened to John. How would she handle hearing the reason behind John’s secrecy? As Spencer drove home, he fervently wished nothing would happen to John of course, and prayed for his safety. Not only for Kate, but for a little girl in Iowa.
Spencer sighed, letting the wind blow his blond hair every which way. There wasn’t anything he could do about it now.
