The Removed [Book #2]

It's been a month since the three hunters and Terry's death. Vivian, Graham, and Julia, along with Lewis, have been staying at the Miller house. There has been little news on the missing girls, leaving Vivian to wonder if she should find them.

Then something happened that changed everything.


#1 - BOUND


7. Graham

"Are you out of your fucking mind?” I snarled.

Vivian had just walked back into the cafe and told us she went down to the police station and talked to the head detective in charge. Lewis and Julia exchanged glances, but I didn't care. I started screaming at her in front of everyone, and she didn't even flinch.

“Will you take it easy?” Vivian snapped. “It's not like I went to the kidnapper.”

“I told you,” I said softly, my voice chipped, “I didn't think this was a good idea. None of us do, but you're too blinded to see that. Now what did this cop say when you did your little trick?”

She narrowed her eyes at me. “Little trick? Graham, I completely shocked him. He didn't even have any words after I left his office.”

Julia glanced at me, frowning. “You didn't set his office on fire, did you?”

“What? No! I didn't use that power. Not a chance.”

I continued to shout at her, while Jules said she needed some air. I heard the faint sound of the bell overhead jingle, but it didn't stop me. I haven't been this mad since I first found Vivian, and she wanted to do something incredibly stupid, something that would put us all in danger.

And here she was doing it again.

I sighed and pinched the bridge of my nose. I closed my eyes and mentally counted to ten. I hoped she'd clear off before I opened my eyes. When I heard the bell chime again, I relaxed. But then I heard her, and she sounded hysterical.

“I can't find Julia. She said she was going outside. She's not there now.”

I opened my eyes to find Lewis going toward Vivian. He looked at me and nodded. I followed. Knowing Jules, she probably went back to the house, to get away from all this drama.

I didn't blame her.

Outside was bright, brighter than I remembered. But I watched Vivian panic, and I almost smiled. She cared a great deal for someone she barely knew, and I envied that.

“I don't think Jules went back to the house,” Lewis said, because he seemed to read my slow reaction. He walked over and handed me something. “If she did, why would she leave her phone on the ground?”

The black Nokia was, in fact, Julia's cell phone. I stared at it before I uttered two words.

“Mother fucker.”
