Morbus is a real motherfucker in the later chapters (at least according to my notes. Things can always change), but around Julia and Jordan (to some extent), he shows his human side.
Both Morbus and Jordan are going to find out that Julia is no shrinking violet. That survival training she's getting is going to come in handy soon.
Disturbed Fan Fiction: Jordan Meets Her Daughter, Part 2--
"Welcome to our home, Jordan," Peter San Marco said when Jordan crossed the threshold. "It's an honor to have you here."
Jordan shook hands with Peter, then Kiera and the boys. Julia waited patiently on the sofa for Jordan to approach her.
As she sat down on the couch next to Julia, Jordan said,
"Julia, I'm Jordan. I've waited a long time to finally meet you."
Julia smiled Jacob's smile, and Jordan couldn't help but wonder where she'd seen that same smile just recently.
"You're my mother," Julia said softly. "I'm so glad you are here!"
"I'm glad I'm here, too," Jordan said. "We have a lot of catching up to do."
As she watched this scene, Kiera became misty-eyed. While she was glad that Julia and Jordan finally got to meet one another, Kiera was afraid that Jordan would take away the little girl that she and Peter had raised from the time she was two weeks old.
Peter noticed this, and assured his wife that this meeting was for the best.
"I know, Peter," Kiera said, wiping away tears. "But I don't want to let her go."
"No one said Julia was going anywhere," Peter said. "Jordan is a very intelligent woman. She'll want what is best for Julia."
"What if what she thinks is best is to take Julia away from us?"
"Honestly, Kiera," Peter said, "I don't think Jordan Terranova is going to do that to us. She knows that Julia is part of our family. We'll get a chance to talk about it with her before any decisions are made. Besides," Peter and Kiera looked over to the sofa to see Jordan and Julia talking, "we knew this was coming when we were told Jordan was still alive and had escaped her imprisonment. Let's just wait and see what happens."
Kiera laid her head against her husband's shoulder and sighed. "I guess you're right, Peter. I'm jumping to conclusions. I should be happy that Jordan is still alive and able to see Julia."
After spending the whole day with Julia, Jordan and the San Marcos discussed future visits, and it was decided that Jordan would come every couple of weeks for a few hours at a time to spend time with not only Julia, but the boys Julia thought of as her brothers.
"I'm the only girl in a family of boys," Jordan told the San Marcos, "so I know what Julia is experiencing to a certain point. I was totally a tomboy until I was about 12. Then puberty set in and I wanted to do 'girl stuff'." Jordan chuckled at the memory of coming in from play just as dirty as her big brothers, and her mother wondering if she really had five boys instead of four.
After about an hour more, Jordan took her leave and promised to be back to visit Julia again in two weeks time.
"Julia is a beautiful girl," Jordan sighed after she was safely in the car and headed back to her own safe house. "People were right..." she trailed off.
"Right about what, Jordan?" Mike asked.
"That Jacob and I would make pretty babies." Jordan said. "But, thanks to the thugs at the prison who tortured and raped me for years, there will be no more babies for me with anyone."
Morbus had been listening to the conversation silently and agreed: he and Jordan did have a beautiful child together. He wondered if he had a chance to win Jordan's heart again. She seemed to be fond of Morbus, and wasn't frightened any longer by his appearance.
I suppose, Morbus thought to himself, I could try and court her. She told David she wasn't ready for a romantic relationship with him or anyone else. Morbus wanted a chance, because he wanted to tell Jordan that in his chest, Jacob's heart still beats.
And in that heart, he still loved the girl he fell for years before; before the United States became a police state run by a puppet leader who was controlled by men with evil and greed in their black souls.
