Excerpt from Hurry Home

From the book Hurry Home


A Dad’s Promise
“Hey, baby girl. It’s okay,” I whisper as I pick my angel up out of the crib. “Daddy’s here, and I’m never gonna let anyone hurt you. Shh!” I coo as I sway her in my arms. “You’re okay.” I carry her over to the rocking chair Danika bought for nights like this and slide down into it. She starts to quiet down as I gently rock her back and forth. “Daddy will always be here for you, baby girl. Never forget that. I love you more than anything else in this world.” I kiss her on the head and continue to rock her as she smiles up at me.
That smile is the only thing that has gotten me through this last week. Thoughts of my baby girl and her smile, so much like her mother’s, were what moved me out of that alley that night. I wanted nothing more than to die there, but Emmalyn needed me. I’m the only thing she has left. I have to be there for her. I know it’s that tiny smile that will get me through tomorrow morning.
