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.

15. Vivian

He touched my shoulder, squeezed it. He repeated his question over again. When I shook my head, he sighed. When Graham stepped into the foyer, Lewis told him what we'd talked about, as if he couldn't hear it from the kitchen.

“She doesn't want to go to the cafe to look around,” he explained.

Graham frowned. “That would be stupid to take her there, Lew. It might trigger something for her. Plus, it's probably taped off now, being a crime scene and all.”

“Can we go see Detective Boyd?” I asked, a little too eagerly.

They exchanged glances.

“Vi, I don't think that's a good idea, either.”

It didn't really matter who said it, because my response was the same.

“Why the hell not? Maybe he has something.”

“He doesn't,” Lewis said sternly. “The only thing I did for him was give him Julia's phone. She had texts and calls from her family. God, they have no idea what's going on.”

Before anyone replied, something buzzed in the pocket of Lewis' jacket. I narrowed my eyes at him. That was my phone.

“Can I have that?” I demanded.

“Yes,” Lewis muttered, handing my phone over.

I snatched it and looked at the screen. There was a text from Detective Boyd. He wanted me to meet him at the police station to talk. I shut the phone and shoved it in my pocket, grabbed my coat and headed for the door.

“Where are you going?” Graham asked. “It's still early.”

I didn't want to tell them, so I said, “Out for a walk. I haven't left this house in a week, and I could use some me time, you know.”

Neither said anything as I shut the front door behind me and walked down the driveway. A walk would do me good, and maybe seeing if they found anything on Julia would be even better.
