“I can’t do this anymore… I just can’t. Being without Linda has been too hard for me, so I’m leaving this earth to join her wherever she may be. God bless you, Jayden. You gave me so much joy, and now it’s time to live your life for you. Take care of yourself and Lydia. I’ll see you someday on the other side.” Jayden read the note aloud, dotting his eyes with the tissue to stop the tears. He’d read this suicide letter from Alan Murdock repeatedly, in total disbelief that he’d take his own life.

Something doesn’t seem right.

Jayden knew the story the police gave him Wednesday when he rushed to Alan Murdock’s home. They’d found him, slumped in a chair with the note addressed to Jayden on a nearby table and the bottle of pills he’d allegedly taken too many of to kill himself. Yeah, Mr. Murdock hated this time of year and he loathed being alone, but Jayden didn’t think Alan would do this, not now, not when they’d planned things for the summer.

“Oh, Pops!” Jayden sniffed and dropped the letter on his bed, not wanting to look at it anymore. The police didn’t release it to him until today, keeping it for evidence in case there was foul play. But after further investigation everything led to suicide, making this situation even harder for Jayden to take. He knew Mr. Murdock missed his wife immensely but didn’t think he’d kill himself because of it.

Jayden pulled his legs close to his chest and pressed his head against his knees. These last couple of days had been quite a shock to him, and he wasn’t sure how to cope with it all. Jayden didn’t drink, smoke, or take drugs, so none of those were an option. And other than Lydia and Bertha, he had no one else to comfort him in his time of need. He’d thought about calling Isaac, but he didn’t want to ruin the man’s New Year’s Day with bad news. Isaac’s probably recovering from the party anyway. Surely he wouldn’t be up for any long talks after attending Silas, Jr.’s big bash last night. Who wanted to reminisce over a man he’d never met? That’s all Jayden wanted to do, and no one had a shoulder available for him to cry on.

Jayden sighed, running his fingers through his hair, pushing it away from his line of vision. He hadn’t slept much because of Murdock’s death and his momma’s own sickness which seemed to worsen with this horrible news. The bags under his eyes had bags, and he hadn’t eaten too much other than the food Bertha had cooked for him and Lydia.

Many in the neighborhood had come by Jayden’s place, paying their respects to Alan, knowing that Jayden was like a son to him. However, his sons hadn’t come, even after Jayden tried to contact them. They’d probably show up once Alan’s will was to be read. Alan had given Jayden power of attorney, so he called Mr. Murdock’s lawyer to inform him of his death. Apparently, Alan trusted Jayden with his life and personal dealings more than his own flesh and blood.

“Pops, we just went to pick out a tree,” Jayden said aloud, and a stray tear ran down his cheek. He gazed out the window, remembering going to hardware stores and empty lots all over the north side a few days ago, looking for the perfect tree for Lydia to put up in their living room. And although Jayden and Alan both loathed Christmas because of bad memories, they were enjoying the time together, freezing their hineys off, searching for a five foot, scrawny tree to please his mother. Alan refused to stop looking until they located the right one regardless of the weather and the time it took to find it. He was determined to get that tree for Lydia to enjoy her Christmas with Jayden no matter how he himself felt about the holiday.

 “Good Lord it’s cold. Alan, we can make this the last stop so we can go warm up. If we don’t find anything here, I’ll go back to the hardware store tomorrow and get that other one Senor Gonzalez would sell for half price.”

Alan trudged behind him, coughing and kicking snow as he walked. “Don’t worry about it, boy. Something tells me we’ll get the right one here. Looks like most of their stock is gone, and they’re bound to have a couple of stragglers they’d like to get rid of.”

Jayden stopped and turned to wait for Mr. Murdock to catch up. Due to the amount of snow in the lot, he’d asked him to stay in the car, but Alan demanded to come along. He could be such a stubborn old man at times, but Jayden loved him anyway. “Yeah, hope so. It’s getting colder and late. I know she still wants to cook the turkey and decorate the tree.”

“Why is she cooking when it’s only the two of you?” Alan finally caught up and took hold of Jayden’s bicep for support.

“I don’t know, Pops. She feels like she has to. I guess it brings her comfort to fix large meals. That’s why I always have leftovers to take to school and work. I’ll be taking a lot with me to the job this week. You want any of it? She’ll have plenty to feed a small army.”

Alan chuckled and stumbled on a patch of ice.

Jayden grabbed him tighter and pulled him up to keep him from completely falling down. “They really should have some salt on this lot. Be careful, okay?”

“I will. By the way, Bertha’s cooking, so I’m eating at her place. If I have enough room in this stomach of mine, I’ll stop by for some of Lydia’s homemade dressing. Not a big fan of turkey, though.”

Jayden laughed at that and stopped in his tracks when he found the perfect tree his madre would want for the front room. “Alan, I think this is the one. It looks like something she might like.”

Alan nodded and blew on his hands, rubbing them together. “Yep, I’d say that resembles you when we found you in the alley all those years ago. Not too tall, cold, and skimpy from not eating in days. I still can’t believe your father threw you out just because you like boys.”

“Yeah, well.” Jayden kicked some snow in front of him and sighed aloud. “He didn’t care much for me after my mom died, so that was his way of justifying getting rid of me.” Jayden stepped forward carefully and caught the eye of the attendant.

“Well, shame on him. Good ol’ Karma will come back to get him someday. And look at you now, Jayden. All grown up and strong after Lydia took you under her wing.”

“I have you to thank for that, Pops. I’ll always appreciate everything you’ve done for me.” Jayden gripped Alan’s shoulder tightly, hugging him close.

“No problem, boy. You’re a good kid, and you deserve the best of everything after going through so much hell. I’m happy I was able to give you a second chance.”

“Me too, Alan… And I’ll be forever grateful.”

Jaydencover Flashback Friday today is on my book, Something About Jayden. The book was originally released by a publisher then I self-published it. I’ve always loved these two characters and wrote two freebies for them on Wattpad. Issac has a dilemma; he’s a married man and he’s fallen for his intern.
