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.

2. Julia

Seeing the news report made Vivian sit straighter, look more alert. I watched her face after the TV came on. She was right when she said Terry was still here. We all knew that, even Graham, who seemed almost reluctant to admit it.

“It's starting again,”Vivian said, shaking her head.“I have to help them. I'm the only one who can.”

I frowned and took her hand. “You can be supportive, babe, but that's all. I mean, even if you went to the police station, what would you say?”

“I'd tell them I could help,” Vivian said, staring at me. “I'd say I knew how to find the missing girls.”

“I don't think you're seeing this clearly,” Lewis interrupted. “They would ask how you knew where the girls were. You cannot say 'I have powers, a way to find them.' It's not something someone normally hears. Besides, they might think you're crazy.”

“I agree,” I said. “You can't do this. I know you want to help, but you can't, not with this. Do you see how insane this is?”

“Insane?” she asked, glaring at me. “No. Insane would be dying one day and coming back with something abnormal inside you. And having hunters on your ass, wanting to kill you, is really very comforting.”

“Easy,” I said, putting my hands up. “I'm just trying to help. I just want you to really, really think about this before you do it.”

“Because it's stupid, right?” she said, standing. She turned around and looked at all of us in turn. “I know that, Jules. I know it's dangerous, but I think given what I've been through, I'm allowed to act a little recklessly.”

“Yes, you are, but this isn't just a little. It's a lot. Jesus, Vi, don't you see that?” It was Graham who spoke. He hadn't said much since we sat down. “You could get killed by some psychopath kidnapper.”

Vivian looked at the floor, but her words were loud.

“I know I'll be safe, because Julia didn't die.”
