Jake hated to admit it but he was actually a bit nervous about finally meeting his somewhat sister. When he received the text from Puck asking if he wanted to meet her he was filled with some kind of warm, exciting anxiety that was foreign to him. The thought of having another person that he could consider family was really overwhelming for him. What is she going to think of me? What if she ask questions that are hard to explain?
