Izzy had stayed away from visiting Jake until now.
She told herself it was because she was busy with the children, and the planning to bring down the Spire. But being busy hadn't stopped her from going to help orient Adam to the 21st century or work on other projects in what little spare time she did have. No, mostly it was because she didn't trust herself not to burst into tears when she visited him.
This Jake was, as far as she was concerned, another of her future children. For a good year or more in this timeline she and Tom had acted as his guardians. When he suddenly turned older he'd given no hint that they hadn't continued to serve in that way while he'd been growing up. So far all intents and purposes he was one of hers, and he'd gotten himself paralyzed, just as the first version of him had. She wasn't sure if she wanted to do more when she finally saw him: slap him or hug him.
She paused outside his room and smoothed down her shirt. It wouldn't be much longer at all before she was showing, and in maternity clothes already not long after that. God help them if she got pregnant again next year, something had to give.
Shaking her head at the mental detour, Izzy forced herself to stop procrastinating and knock on the door. "Jake, it's Izzy. Are you up for company?"
