Short Story: Love Is Thicker Than Blood

I have a story to share with you.

It’s about a man we’ll call Junior (just a nickname.) Junior had a fairly normal life as he was growing up. Bike rides, great friends, tee ball, slumber parties, pool parties, you get the idea.

Then one day, in his late teens, Junior’s world was shaken. Long held family secrets came to light. Sounds like the overused plotline of a Lifetime tv movie, but it was now Junior’s life.

He learned that the father he had known his whole life wasn’t his father in the biological sense.

Even so, he decided that the man he’d grown up knowing as his father remained so in his heart, regardless.

After all, blood is thicker than water, but Love is thicker than blood.
