He was a man who was used to getting what he wanted but didn't know what he needed. Not until now. His son was coming home, a son he hadn't seen in over three years, a son who had almost died in a foreign land far from home.
His wife had been nagging him about not giving his son a hard time. Not bothering him about Iran or what his plans were to recover from his injuries. Patricia always had a softer heart than he did and as he chomped on his cigar he thought that that was the reason why his son was so damn wishy-washy about everything.
Mellie had informed him he was invited to his son's homecoming and could stay along with Patricia. That Fitz wouldn't mind his father staying in the main house with them. That above all he needed family. He needed his father while his body and spirit recovered.
A phone rang and Fitzgerald Thomas Grant Jr., former Governor of California, answered it.
"Hollis, what's up you son of a bitch?"
"We have a problem."
"What type of problem?"
"A problem only Olivia Pope can solve."
