"I'm not going to be his new Mam, Dan loves his Mam. But I'll be like another one. An extra in case he needs hugs really fast." She scooped up Hrodolf, and hugged him. "See isn't that handy?"
Bryn glanced over at Dan. It really was a shame that Wendy had not shown up yet. But she was glad that she had been able to get Dan and Jack down to see her.
"You came and asked me before telling Jack!?" She couldn't hide the surprise in her voice. She could hope that Wendy would show up before the date. She would pray for that to happen and hope the gods listened.
