Before long, Abby heard the front door opening and Terry greeting someone. She peeked

through the doorway and saw that it was Dr. Jacoby. Tucked beneath his arm was a

present tied with soft yellow ribbon. Before Abby had a chance to tell Jake, Sheriff

Peterson and Richard Doyle arrived with their wives.

Dick introduced his wife, Sara, to John and Terry, and then looked around for Jake.

"He’s in the kitchen with Abby," answered John, knowingly.

Before long, Abby heard the front door opening and Terry greeting someone. She peeked

Peterson and Richard Doyle arrived with their wives.

Dick introduced his wife, Sara, to John and Terry, and then looked around for Jake.

“He’s in the kitchen with Abby,” answered John, knowingly.

Seeing the couple approaching the kitchen, Abby ran to the stove and tried to look busy.

Just as Jake was about to ask her what she was doing, the Doyles appeared in the

doorway.

“Jake!” exclaimed Dick, eagerly. “Congratulations on the baby!”

“Thank you, Sir,” smiled Jake, wiping his hand on the apron he was wearing before

shaking Dick’s outstretched hand.

“I must say, I was surprised to hear the news,” admitted Dick.

“Not as surprised as Jake was,” said Abby, with a grin.

“Sara, this is the young lady I’ve been telling you about,” said Dick, introducing his wife.

“I’m so happy to meet you,” said Sara, surprising Abby with a big hug. “If there’s

anything we can ever do for you, just let us know.”

“Thank you,” replied Abby, a little unsure what that was supposed to mean.

“Heaven knows,” added Sara, “I’ve seen more than one woman marry an inmate in the

hopes of somehow reforming or saving him from himself. The stories I could tell you,

would break your heart!”

“Jake was saved when I met him,” answered Abby, “so I guess I have a head start.”

Dick chuckled and took off his sunglasses. As Sheriff Peterson joined them, Sara excused

herself and went to visit with Izumi and the Sheriff’s wife.

“Jake, Abby, I’m going to need to talk to you both, later today,” said the Sheriff, looking

very strange without his uniform.

“Are we in trouble?” asked Abby.

“Not yet,” replied the man, glaring hard at Dick before returning to the living room.

Just as Mr. Winkler, Dennis, and the rest of Abby’s fishing buddies were arriving in

droves, Dr. Jacoby joined AJ and Dick in the kitchen
