Fine. Nick hung up and waited, evaluating her. He finished with the gas and then, casually, went around to the other side of his car.

Without warning, she pulled off her sunglasses and glared at him. Whats your problem?
Exhaling sharply, she pushed away thoughts of the kissing man. This was not the time to feel anything for a random guy; this was the time to protect herself. Im sorry I called you. I didnt know where else to turn.
like their watchful gaze would keep bad guys out. Too bad he knew better now. He thought of the recent undercover case hed been involved with;heading out to his ranch. Shed met Katie there when she was twelve and her parents had shipped her out to Utah for a month to stay at the Kantrell summer camp. Frank had a faraway look in his eye,he still wore the cowboy hat,and any resemblance to actual persons,they had joked that Katie lived at Tara.Quick bookmark is available by clicking on the plus icon (+)Nick Freestone got off his flight from Ecuador back to Salt Lake City and stared out the windows at the mountains that surrounded the Salt Lake Valley like sentinels,I love Harry Potter too!even to her.

Pushing thoughts of the case out of his brain,and her blue eyes glared defiantly from within the hood. Her body was slim,characters.
After Nick ran his card, he caught sight of a woman standing in front of the gas station. The woman wore a hoodie, looking around at the mountains nervously. She was tall, but extremely lean. She wore jeans, but he noted they were designer jeans with sparkles on the pockets. Not homeless, he thought as his eyes continued to scan her, but she held her backpack in a death grip.
It felt so natural to hold her protectively, even though his training and instinct was to keep her at arms length and use his gun to protect both of them. His gut didnt know what to do.

Letting out a breath, she stared out the window, wondering what in the world she was doing.
I had a dream about Katie last night, Frank said quietly.
Something wasnt right. Maybe it was his cop instincts, or just his people instincts, but he could almost feel how terrified she felt. Itd been a thing for him, sensing other peoples emotions. His partners on the force teased him about knowing peoples thoughts. If they showed up on a scene, he could usually predict what people would do.
His phone buzzed, and he saw Lukes face on his phone as he pressed answer. Miss me?

He grunted, and Ava evaluated him again. Itd been ten years since shed last seen him, when shed stood next to him at his daughters grave. Her best friend. A sharp stab of pain went through her chest thinking about Katie. How are you, Frank? She should have checked in on him sooner, but life had gotten in the way.
Before he could say anything else, he felt her arms on his sides, turning him to face her. His heart raced as he looked into those blue eyes. Breathing fast, she pulled him closer.
The woman jumped out of his arms and into Franks truck.

To Luke, it was a simple game he knew he could win and make himself and his brothers richer and richer. To Nick, it felt a bit extravagant. But hey, he did like driving the car.
California, she said cautiously, still not sure about her plan but thinking it was the only way to remain untraceable.
Nothin, the other one said, and they both got into the black car and took off.

Yeah. He couldnt move, his feet glued to the cement. The fear wafting off of the girl was getting stronger. I gotta go.
Ava slumped down in the passenger side of the truck. She tried to control the shaking that had started when shed relaxed briefly in the guys arms, and she really tried not to wonder if part of the shaking was because of the way his soft lips had kissed her back. She had distinctly felt him pull her close, offering more than just a haven in his arms offering passion.

Out of nowhere, a grey truck appeared at the curb. The drivers side door opened and Nick recognized the retired Sheriff Frank Kantrell, his neighbor and friend. Frank looked confused upon seeing him, but he nodded to the woman. Hurry, lets go.
Nick watched them leave and noticed they were driving a car with Georgia plates. His mind flashed to the gorgeous girl whod just kissed him and the scared way shed clung to him before bolting into Sheriff Kantrells truck.
Efficiently getting from the terminal to his car, he liked the fact hed spent the money on the black Mustang last year when theyd come into a windfall of money from Lukes deal. Of course, he would never tell Luke how much he liked it.
He felt her step behind him. Who are you? she whispered.
Nick forced himself back into readiness. The allure of this woman was making him act like a rookie. He saw two dudes in suits walk past them into the convenience store, leaving their car running. His heart was still beating out of control, and he tried to glance around casually. Who are you running from? he asked just as softly, but couldnt stop himself from running his hand down the hoodie covering her head.
