Outside the courthouse, I could hear the rain pounding. My lawyer said parking lots were flooded.
Inside the courthouse, my handcuffs were as cold and hard as the rain outside. I sat before the judge, ready for my verdict.
“I hearby declare the defendant not guilty in the murder of Dempsey Baynart.”
My restraints were removed and I bolted from the courtroom. Brogan’s face lit, his arms wide as he leaped from Ione’s lap and into my arms.
“Mommy’s secret worked.”
“It did, buddy. He thought that big baby doll was you”
Ione approached me smiling. “Let’s get back to Nova Scotia, shall we?”
I couldn’t wait.

I hope you liked the journey. This is the last chapter of this series. It ran for 26 chapters. I highly encourage you to start at the beginning. Our character had quite an adventure. This was a fun challenge I posed to myself. Thank you Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting these photo prompts. I will continue to write my Saturday prompts, they just won’t be connected. A HUGE thanks to all who have been following!
