He preferred night time hours, all of his life. Growing up the oldest of three, he’d been expected to excel, to be a good big brother, but those things hadn’t interested Ethan. He slipped into the game world as a teen, and he never looked back. Cold turkey quits now and then to attempt saving his first marriage, to be a better Dad to his youngest, Caitlyn. But all in all, he didn’t see the harm in finding something he enjoyed.

Perhaps his first wife would have been happier, maybe still alive, if she’d found a hobby to enjoy.

The baby was just past the due date, and Caitlyn intended to spend as much time in town as her classes allowed. She didn’t have a vehicle, and relying on something chaotic like an upperclassman or a taxi to get her to the hospital was out of the question.

It hadn’t stopped her from having fears that her water would break in the middle of a lecture hall, but luck would have it that she was in South Port, and the the contractions had started slow and steady without a water mess.
