THE NEGOTIATION TEASE
“Dane! There are men at the school trying to take us!”
All at once Dane’s body and mind synced up. No sighing. No thoughts of vacations. No molasses on the gears.
That wasn’t just any woman.
It was the woman he blamed himself for making a widow.
“There are three of them! One in a van, and two—two are chasing us!”
A shout sounded in the background. Dane tightened his hold on the steering wheel, knuckles going white. The rustling noise wasn’t a bad connection. It was movement. It was running.
“Rachel, where are you?”
There was more rustling and the sound of something slamming shut before she answered.
“We’re at—we’re at Darby Middle,” she said, out of breath. “Only four of us here when they—when they showed up.”
Dane cut the wheel hard, turning to the opposite direction. Another shout sounded in the background.
