Chapter 11

Call it mother’s intuition or call it paranoia, Brogan and I needed a weekend away. I found a cozy bed and breakfast in the Cape Breton Highlands. Naturally, as 3 years tend to love, he loved the water flowing by.

“Mum? Can we fwoe wocks?”

“Sure sweetie. There’s a sandy spot down there.”

The air was as clean as could be. The only sound was the river tumbling by.

He had thrown two rocks when I noticed something odd. That black car parked at the side of the road. Windows tinted so dark I couldn’t see in.

“Let’s go back in. I’m cold, ” I lied.

From our window, I watched it drive away.

Chapter 9

I could hear Brogan in living room. Finally, a minute to drink my coffee in peace. Then BANG! I heard him slam the truck on the floor, then silence. Then BANG! again this time followed by an angry cry. Melt down. Through his tears he told me his truck needed new batteries. The dumper wasn’t dumping. While I rummaged for fresh batteries, there was a knock at the door. Brogan rushed to answer it. He returned with a small box post marked from New York City. Much to my surprise it contained a jar full of batteries. I put four of them in the truck. Nothing happened. I tried four more and again nothing.

They were all dead.

Chapter 8

“Anything for you. Which one do you want?”

“Bring me the green one,” (I’m horrible with names) “the one with the steering wheel on the right. And bring the one you like best. I’ll mail you my key to the garage. He works all day so feel free to stop by anytime.”

I knew Dempsey loved his collector cars. He never drove them. Just collected. In a week, two of his precious beings would be here. Take my bank account and I’ll take your cars, bastard.

I knew this was just the beginning.
