Six Sentence Sunday

So for this weeks Six Sentence Sunday I'm giving you the last taste of the sequel to Initiation, my Young Adult series. This is from the last chapter in the book and as I've stopped new writing on it. Next week I'll be on to something new.

Here it is, from the last chapter.

I bent down until I was at his eye level. “Dad? If you do this for me, I won’t ever ask you to participate again. Do you understand? This will be the last time, the last thing you ever have to do for me.”

He raised his eyes to mine. I knew he loved me—as much as a broken man who’d never been put back together correctly could—and I wasn’t surprised when he nodded his head.
