CHAPTER ONE HUNDRED and SEVENTY
Saturday afternoon — 1:45 P.M. MDT
“Ready?” Jacob asked Jill.
She glanced at him then continued staring at the building. They were sitting in her Lexus SUV outside Blane’s doctor’s office on the Anschutz Medical Campus. Katy sat behind them in her car seat turning the pages of a new picture book.
“We came to get answers to any and all what ifs,” Jacob said.
“How did you get him to come in?”
“He likes Blane and said he’d do anything to help,” Jacob said. “We’re also major donors to his foundation that provide transplants for people with no resources – kids, homeless people, foster care.”
“As of two hours ago,” Jacob said.
“Did Jeraine really spend the day digging up the sewer line at Tanesha’s Gran’s house?”
“After escorting Tanesha’s Gran to church, he sure did,” Jill laughed. “That’s where we went before we came to get you. I had to take a picture of Mr. It in his fancy suit up to his eyes in dirt.”
“Oh trust me, Gran knows. She wanted Jeraine to do it,” Jill smiled. “And he did without question. He came inside, showered, and took them all to lunch. He’s going to call you this afternoon to get the parts to repair the sewer. Tanesha is beside herself.”
“What about that doctor?” Jacob asked. Their eyes turned to stare at the building again. “Wasn’t she dating a doctor?”
“Cam? You remember he showed up the night Saint Jude… died?”
“He was looking for Tanesha to tell her that he had been relocated,” Jill said. “Turns out he’s in Witness Protection. That was the answer to all the Cam mysteries. The U.S.Marshals came and took him away that night. Tanesha hasn’t heard from him since.”
“That’s weird,” Jacob said.
They continued to stare at the building.
“I thought we were going inside,” Katy said.
Jacob took Jill’s hand and kissed the spot on her hand next to her thumb.
“Ready?” she asked.
He nodded. They got out of the SUV. With Katy between them, Jacob and Jill went inside.
