Heir Force Novel: Epilogue

Kate placed the photo on the page and pressed it down on the scrapbook page. She smiled remembering how Sarah looked up at Spencer the day she married him and they became a complete family. She closed the scrapbook and moved to the computer.

After Kate and Spencer married, Kate and Sarah moved to his place since he had a spare bedroom. Then Kate found a job working a couple days at the base library while Sarah went next door to Mrs. P’s.

Kate loved working and interacting with the library patrons. She got to see her coworkers often and they would catch up on their different lives. Her schedule rotated days each week, but at least she didn’t have to take trips or work overnight. She also loved being a wife and a mom more than she ever thought she would. She was thankful for her loving husband and beautiful daughter.

Sarah was adjusting well and loved her step-dad. It didn’t take her long to call Spencer Daddy instead of Mr. Daddy. Sometimes Kate would tease him by calling him that when Sarah wasn’t around. He always grinned at her.

Spencer was staying in the Air Force for now. Next year elections were coming up and they were hopeful a more military-minded president would appreciate the armed forces more than the current one. Spencer was busy taking online classes to finish his degree so he could have more options when he did get out.

Today they were all going to the park after Spencer got off from work. It was a beautiful spring day to take Buttons on a walk and let Sarah play on the swings.

But first she wanted to do something. Kate glanced at the framed photo of her and Sarah sitting on the desk before she hovered her fingertips above the keyboard. Being a mother now, she had thought more and more of her own mother. What had happened to her? Was she still alive? Did she have some sort of condition that caused her to leave? Kate placed her fingers on the keys and typed in Sylvia Langston in the search engine. Maybe Kate could find her. Maybe she couldn’t.

But she would at least try.

Kate Married?

After putting Sarah down, Kate played with Buttons while the dishwasher ran its cycle. She aimlessly tossed the ball for him to chase. Her thoughts wandered down the road to think about what life might be like if she and Spencer were married. She only had six months left of active duty and now that she was a mom, she was pretty sure she wanted to get out. She could still use the educational benefits and as long as Spencer was active duty, they could still use the gym and shop at the commissary. And they would have health insurance for Sarah. That was a pretty important benefit.
