Sam turned his gaze away, yet remained in the same position. "No, we don't quit." He sighed. "We carry on. We pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off and find the damn tablet."
He fell silent for a long moment. "I miss Dad." Well... that was unexpected and as out of the blue as they came. Sam and John had spent the better part of Sam's life butting heads over just about everything. John was the main reason Sam had wanted out and had wanted to be normal. But, he was still his dad and he still missed him. Maybe they hadn't taken the time to grieve properly, maybe that was part of the problem. You could only push the emotions down so far before they reared their ugly heads.
