Chapter 6

When Avery woke, it was dark out, but she could see the light breaking across the horizon. It had to be about 4:00 or 4:30 a.m. She yawned and sat up, then realized that, although tired, she didn’t feel too bad. She got up, padded her way to the bathroom, and, after using the facilities, stepped out into the living room, wondering if she wanted to stay up, but realized it was so damn early that she should probably go back to sleep. But then her gaze landed on Hudson’s laptop.

He had left it open. She walked over, saw the note, saying he’d gone out. He’d actually put a time stamp down, noting it was written last night at eleven o’clock. She checked her watch; sure enough, that was five and a half hours ago. Swearing to herself, she pulled out her phone and sent him a text, hoping he would answer it. When he didn’t, she sent him another one. When there was no answer again, she contacted Dennis. When he answered right away, she said, “The fact that you answered is probably not good.”

“If you’re looking for Hudson, he’s out after a sniper.”

She gasped. “Is he hurt?”

“He’s fine at the moment, but somebody’s taking potshots at us,” he said, “and you need to stay inside and locked up where you’re secure.”

“Why? Am I in trouble?”

“Hopefully not,” he said. “But the mystery woman we caught outside the restaurant, was shot through the station window,” he said. “She’s in the hospital right now. She’ll live, but it was a little too close of a call for all of us.”

“So these bad guys are trying to clean up, aren’t they?”

“Yes, I think Hudson was correct there. It looks like a lot of these international terrorists are in the country right now, and some of them could be involved in these Vail events. We don’t really know for sure yet.”

“Where are you?”

“I’m in the alleyway with the body of the second military man that Hudson saw in the hotel, which he confirmed for me. That’s why he came out at this hour of the night.”

“Good Lord,” she said, scrubbing her face. “Well, I’m not going back to sleep now.”

“Maybe not, but, if you hook up with this guy, you have to realize this is the kind of life you’ll lead.”

“What does your wife think about your career?”

“She probably hates it,” he said. “Once she did tell me that she hated it, but she hated living without me more, so here we are.”

“And I agree with her,” she said. “Of course we’ll worry, but, if we worry every time someone crosses the street, it won’t get us anywhere either.”

“Just a little crazier with worry,” he said. “Anyway I’ll hang up because I’m busy, and he’ll contact you as soon as he can.”

“But you don’t even know if he’s alive, do you?”

“No,” he said. And then, in a surprisingly gentle voice, he added, “But there’s absolutely no reason to suspect that he’s not.” And, with that, he hung up.
