Chapter 26

Keelan There was about a month or so between Rayen and my pregnancies, but she was at least as big as me. When I’d asked her about it she’d told me you start to show earlier after your first because your muscles have already been stretched. I just took another bite of cheesecake. “Oh, thatContinue reading “Chapter 26”

Chapter 25

Haven Victor Sinclair had been found by a windtech checking on the turbines at the wind farm this morning, a mere week after Murrell’s release. Victor had been beaten so badly that he’d looked dead, but when emergency services arrived they found a pulse and he’d been rushed to the hospital. I had two unis onContinue reading “Chapter 25”

Chapter 24

Keelan I had my own stool behind the counter at the Daily Grind now. I refused to use it on principal. Most of the time. I wasn’t above using it to gain sympathy points or to annoy irritating customers. We have a good staff, trained to make the best coffee. Or at least the bestContinue reading “Chapter 24”

Chapter 23

Haven “Oh, he’s definitely not dead.” The way Murrell lounged made it seem as though he were simply relaxing at a friend’s house, not quite at home but with people he knew wouldn’t or couldn’t hurt him. I ground my teeth. “How do you know?” Alex asked from his seat beside me. Alex was moreContinue reading “Chapter 23”

Chapter 22

Keelan “But-” Alex started. “He’s dead,” Haven finished for him. “He is?” I was stunned. If he was dead than I’d been freaking out over nothing. Except it wasn’t nothing. There were still bodies. On the other hand, I hadn’t heard anything about them being burned or having white phosphorous poisoning. I still didn’t buyContinue reading “Chapter 22”

Chapter 20

Keelan “Oh my gawd, I’m so nervous,” Nita paced back and forth in one of pair of closed pavilions set up for the brides. They’d decided to have their wedding in the meadow furthest south on the reservation. There was a slight rise in the center that was popular for stargazing and for weddings. AlthoughContinue reading “Chapter 20”

Chapter 19

Haven His hazel eyes were wide with shock as they moved from face to face finally locking with mine. I froze as if I’d looked into the eyes of a gorgon. This was like a dream and a nightmare rolled into one. This was everything I wanted, but by the look on his face, IContinue reading “Chapter 19”

Chapter 18

Keelan Apparently, the sanding I’d started working on at the Moran’s house had lead in it. Oh, joy. After I’d been sanding for a few days, lead had been discovered in the paint on the baseboards, and this had been after finding and dealing with a termite infestation, a heavy coating of black mold under the tilesContinue reading “Chapter 18”

Chapter 17

Haven When Keelan was asked on the day he was discarghed what he knew about Robert Murrell and why he’d been at that bus station that day, he had looked down at his hands and remained silent so long I’d thought he wouldn’t speak. When he finally looked up I saw a hollowness in his eyes that solidifiedContinue reading “Chapter 17”

Chapter 16

Keelan I’d wound up staying an extra night in the hospital when the hole in my back started leaking blood unexpectedly and I had to pay another visit to the OR. That had sucked. Until today. Here I was, bundled into a wheelchair on may way to stay with George where I’d be out ofContinue reading “Chapter 16”
