Erik and Martin sat in the small booth at the Uber Café in Mendon both trying to grasp the events that occurred just minutes earlier.

"We can sleep at the house and head out first thing in the morning. It's about a two hour drive to get to the farmhouse." Erik's finger traced a small road on a map. "The last leg of the trip is all farm roads so we'll have to take my truck instead of your Lincoln. I hope you don't mind the rougher ride."

Martin didn't respond. The old man just sipped his iced coffee watching the beautiful young women at the counter laugh with the customers.

Erik tapped his hand. "Counselor, are you in there?"

Denton flinched, coming back to reality. "Sorry, my mind was wandering." He gazed back at the girls. "So young and innocent. They have no idea what's going on around them, how close they are to oblivion. What we do or don't do will impact their lives."

Erik turned his gaze and took a moment to consider his friend's observation. "You're right. Let's hope we can fix this mess. Not just for their sake but for all our sakes."

Denton took another sip of his coffee. "How did you find this place? This stuff is really good."

Erik took a large sip from his coffee and nodded. "Shanda found it. We've been here a few times and the atmosphere just seemed right." Erik sighed. "It feels tranquil. I can't put it into words, so I come here and think, drink coffee and have lunch when I need to get away."

The old man smiled and nodded. "Anderson knew you'd find it."

Erik shrugged. "I'm not following you."

"Remember back at Madame's in DC? What Anderson told us? I was so busy eating that I really didn't pay it all that much heed. He said there would be another oasis to replace Jeff's, I think you found it, or Shanda did."

Erik looked around. "Maybe. But right now we need to focus on tomorrow."

Denton hesitated for a moment. Erik saw his friend balk. "What's the problem, Counselor?"

Denton scowled. "We'll talk at your place. Too many ears here and voices carry."
