“Everything okay Bud?” I called, hearing little footsteps in the hall outside my bedroom door.
“I brought you something,” Brian said. His face was shy and serious as he presented his Scooby Doo nightlight.
“What’s that for?”
“You keep leaving Daddy’s light on all night. I thought maybe you were afraid of the dark since Daddy went to heaven.”
I didn’t even realize I was doing it, but Brian was right. Peter’s platinum wedding band looked like a holy relic resting in a pool of lamplight on his nightstand.
“You keep that nightlight Sweetie. I’m not afraid of the dark.”
