CHAPTER ONE HUNDRED and FORTY-THREE
“I was supposed to do it last summer, but I never got there,” Alex laughed. “Colin and Max are going to help me today. I think I can have a map in…”
She looked at the material he had given her and shook her head.
“Not sooner than five hours,” Alex said. “Maybe six hours to get most of the details drawn. Aren’t Jake and Mike supposed to help?”
“We can meet you anywhere,” Seth said.
“My office in the Federal building,” Alex said. “Noon.”
“Bring Delphie,” Alex said.
“I haven’t seen Delphie in a long time,” Max smiled.
“We love Delphie,” Alex said.
“Anything else?” Seth asked.
“Lunch?” Trece asked.
“Bring lunch,” Alex said. “Something good.”
“Little Anita’s,” Trece suggested.
“Good,” Alex said. “We went through the FBI profile on the plane.”
“How did you get it?” Seth asked. “He would only give me a summary.”
“He wouldn’t give it to us either,” Alex said.
“He didn’t have to,” Max said.
“We have admin rights to the FBI server,” Alex said. “It was fairly easy to find.”
Shaking his head, Seth smiled.
“Raz will have his report at noon too,” Alex said.
She gave him a nod. She and Max put their glasses on in unison. They walked together out the door. The men waited until Max and Alex were in the SUV before following them. Trece closed the door. Shaking his head, Seth went back up the stairs. He turned into his bedroom to find Ava nestled in the newly made bed.
“You found the other comforter?” Seth asked as he took off his clothing.
She pointed to the closet.
“When you were looking for my wife’s clothing?”
“Wanna try again?” she whispered in his ear.
“Of course,” Seth said.
Using her finger, she indicated that she’d brushed her teeth.
“Good thinking,” he said.
She kissed him. Their lips began their happy play across each other’s mouth. She was moving toward him when his phone rang. She stopped moving. He flopped back on the bed and chuckled. Reaching the table by the bed, she gave him his phone. He smiled his thanks.
“O’Malley,” Seth said.
“Dad! It’s Lizzie!”
