The door slowly opened. A tall, stocky man entered and closed the door quickly behind him, hanging onto the knob with one hand behind his back as he leaned against the door. His blond hair was trimmed short, as was his beard. But the shape of the face was familiar.

Chris Virdon’s throat worked, his jaw trembled. Thirty years melted away, and the man who was taller and broader in the chest than Alan suddenly became a young boy who missed his father. “Dad—,” his voice broke, and he rushed forward to pull Alan into a fierce hug. “Dad,” he said again, his voice muffled into Alan’s neck, “Oh my god, Dad. I can’t believe it’s you. I can’t believe you’re home.”
