Summary: Yubel kept her promise. Cobra and Rick are reunited at long last.
“Dad! Dad!” Cobra would have recognized Rick’s voice if a thousand years had passed, much less the five that had. He wrapped his arms around Rick, tears coursing down his weather-roughened cheeks. “I missed you, Dad!”
“I missed you, too.” Cobra wasn’t going to let Rick go, no matter what. He ran his hands through the boy’s hair and was amazed to see that he hadn’t aged a day. Perhaps that wasn’t so surprising, though. Did you age once you had…
Cobra tried not to think about that. He should’ve known this was what Yubel meant in the first place, and yet, he still couldn’t be angry about it. She’d given him exactly what she’d promised: reunited him with his son. Nothing else mattered.
“Look who else is here!” Rick gestured and whistled, and a very familiar dog bounded up. Just like with Rick, there was no sign of the car accident that had taken his life. “Say hi to dad, General!”
Cobra rubbed behind General’s ears as the dog licked his face. “Nice to see you again too, General.”
“Come on, Dad. Let’s go home.” Rick kept one arm wrapped around his dad’s waist and together, they headed home.
