Sorry he'd followed his dream and become a teacher. Sorry they couldn't pay the goddamn credit card bills this month. But he'd been meant for the classroom. The last year or so, he'd been giving her the same kind of guilty look, every time he'd come back from his camp-outs with Hunter, broaching again and again the idea that perhaps, just perhaps, Katherine was beyond their help. She'd be damned if Chadwick would take her baby away. She shivered, her right knee trembling against Ann's under the quilt.
And right now, the Ann underneath wanted an earthquake. Even blocks away in the dark, Katherine could see the trees—four huge palms, much too tall for Oakland.
