The tugging on his leg grew stronger and he looked down to see Ava staring up at him. “Holly made a cookie for you too,” she said. “Wanna see it?”
“Sure.” Glad for an excuse to avoid conversation about him being a hero, Jensen stepped out of line and followed the little girl to the end of the table. She jumped up, grabbed a cookie off a plate and handed it to him.
A gingerbread man decorated with colorful icing and his name written in soft script filled his hand. Something tightened in his chest.
“See? Aunt Holly made me one too. Mine has my name on it.”
He tore his eyes from the cookie to look at Ava.
“Do you like yours?” Ava asked.
He shook himself out of his stupor, upset that a cookie had awakened old memories and made him remember pieces of his life he’d tried so hard to forget.
A tug on his pant leg. Ava stared up at him as she chewed the arm of her gingerbread lady. “Aren’t you going to eat your cookie?”
Jensen swallowed the lump in his throat, feeling like a fool. It was just a cookie.
