Rae glanced toward the stage, and all thoughts of Rob left her mind. Flint appeared in her line of sight, and her smile was bursting at the seams. He was walking toward them with Rick, who had rushed off to meet him backstage once the event concluded. It took everything in her to not run over to him and give him a hug.
Rae saw Gladys shift slightly out of the corner of her eye, and when she turned to look at her, she caught Gladys looking at her son. Gladys’s gaze didn’t waver, and when Flint finally looked up, she saw him look at her, then his mom, then back at her. There, his stare remained until he reached the two most important women in his life.
“Rick, thanks for everything tonight. I think the campaign is definitely moving in the right direction.” Flint took his eyes off of Rae briefly to look at Rick as he spoke.
“Perfect. I’ll send you an email this evening about our next steps, and then we’ll chat in the morning.” Rick said goodbye to the group before he headed out.
“Mom, thanks for coming,” Flint said as he shifted his attention to his mother. Although he wasn’t looking at her, Rae’s body was aware of Flint’s presence. More than she would care to admit.
“Wouldn’t miss it for the world, sweetie. You did an outstanding job.” She leaned in to give him a hug and a kiss on the cheek.
“Excellent job up there, West.” Another voice interrupted their moment. The trio turned their attention to the intruder. Before them stood Rob Cohen, who eagerly shook both Gladys’s and Rae’s hands. He swept a hand through his blond hair and gave the group an almost blinding smile. Although Rae had just met him, she could see that the smile didn’t reach his eyes. Not by a long shot.
