Ghosts of the Past
Brianne hasn’t talked to her brother in years, not since the night he walked out of her life. When he shows up out of the blue, she doesn’t trust him.
Mark brings his troubles back to Brianne and her family. He never thought they would be in any danger, but he was wrong.
Now they must work together to survive. Can they overcome the ghosts of the past?
“Who are you?” Toby stepped into the room. “What do you want with her?”
“It’s not her we want.” The man snapped. “Mark is your brother, isn’t he?”
“Yes.” Brianne looked at her daughter. “He isn’t here.”
“I know that.” He pulled a gun from the waistband of his jeans. “You need to get him here, now.”
“How can I do that?” She asked. “I don’t know where he is.”
“He was here earlier today. You better figure out where he is before something happens to her.” The man held the gun to Erin’s head. “I won’t play games with any of you.”
“Call him.” Toby crossed his arms over his chest. “The number should be son the phone. “
“What if he doesn’t come?” Brianne started to leave.
“He better.” The man said. “Bring the boy back with you.”
Brianne hurried to the kitchen. Mark had better get here soon. If anything happened to her little girl, she would hurt him.
She listened to the phone ring several times. Why wasn’t he answering? They didn’t have time for this.
“Brianne, what is it?” Mark asked. “I don’t want to argue with you anymore.”
“Mark, you need to get over here, now.” She paused for a minute. “You were right about the danger. There’s a man here and he has Erin.”
“I’m on my way.” He hung up.
Brianne put the phone on the table, going to her son’s bedroom. Asher hadn’t moved at all. The kid could sleep through anything.
She hated to wake him up. Maybe she could carry him to her room? Of course, she hadn’t been able to lift him in a while. Still, she had to try.
