“Just wanted to let you know, that’s all.” Tom turned around and started walking toward the mine, somewhat upset by his father’s reaction.
James stood still for a while. Tom’s words were eating him up. And then his own. He knew he had acted rash, but also that he couldn’t take any of it back. He hadn’t allowed himself to feel anything since he had left his son, and it was hard for him to let go of that idea of self-control. Hard for him to appear vulnerable.
The more he tried to keep the feelings suppressed in himself, the more they surfaced. An image of them sharing rabbit meat in the shade of a tree kept flashing in front of his eyes. He found it sad that it was the warmest memory he had had together with his son. He then remembered Tom’s mother also, Rosanne, and all the beautiful moments he had spent with her, and felt even worse.
Standing in place and reliving his dearest memories, he heard one of the guards yelling at him to go join the others, which brought him back to reality. James shook his head, waited a second to regain his thoughts, and went his way after his son.
He decided then that he needed be strong still – or at least appear to be – for the sake of his son. They both needed that. Someone firm to rely on. At least for as long as they weren’t done with their job and safe.
