How Jackson Got his Name

Sean Roth was a popular guy, a friendly rogue with a quick wit. His best friend always called him ‘Jack’ instead of Sean and was the only person in the world Sean allowed to do that. Then Sean impregnated 16-year old Naimh Fitzpatrick. He tried to ignore her—and her condition—but the sex was good and Naimh always took him back. When she was six months along, his friend Brendan stopped buy to pick Sean up for a dart game. Seeing Naimh’s swollen belly—he rubbed it—asking, “How’s Jack’s son doing?” After that day, Brendan seemed to stop by regularly and would always ask the same thing. When Naimh gave birth to a boy, Sean insisted on calling him Jack’s Son. The hospital combined it on the birth certificate to Jackson.
