A Beginning
Who knows, I plan on a good story, just give me a little time.
Midnight; “Hello.” She said as she answered the phone.
“He’s close, too close. I’m sending the boys to you.”
Suddenly awake, she sat up in the bed. “John?” she asked. “Where are you? What’s going on?” Fear washed over her as she waited for his reply.
“No time to talk, just promise you’ll take care of them. I won’t be far behind.” He said, urgency in his voice.
“You know I will. Promise me you’ll be careful.” Her pleas just about a whisper.
“I promise.” He said, a silence feel between them, and a thousand emotions washed over her. “Wait for me.” He said, and then the phone went dead.
Trembling, she closed her eyes, and thinking only of the man and his safety.
One week later…..

The night had been busy, but only a few costumers remained at the diner. She was cleaning the bar when the bell at the door sounded. She looked up, and for a moment was taken aback by the jolt of emotions, and thoughts that came from these two boys, John’s boys.
“Excuse me.” The taller of the two said as they sat down at the bar. “ We’re looking for some one.” He smiled.She turned, drawing two beers from the tap. “Who might that be.” She said, in a very distinctive Scottish accent, as she sat the glasses in front of them.
“A Hayden McLeod.” Said the other one. She smiled; it was John’s boys. She had had her doubts, but the use of her real last name sealed it.
“I believe that I can help there.” She said easily, turning to remove her apron. “Nick.” She called out to the man through the large opening. “Yeah.” He answered as he came into sight. ”You care to lock up tonight?” she asked. “Sure. Will you be coming back?” he asked, concern in his tone.
She waited a long moment, choosing her words. “Not for a while.” She said, smiling at her friend. “But I know I can trust you to run this place without me. “
“Promise you’ll be careful. I’m not so sure he deserves you’re help.” ”Don’t be like that, Nick, I owe the man my life.” ”I still don’t think that’s reason enough to do…”
She cut him short. “I’ll call in a few days. Don’t worry. You know I have to do this.”
Nick smiled, reaching across the seal to touch her face. “Just be careful, and don’t do anything foolish.”
She smiled. “I promise.”
Turning back she said, “You parked out front?”
“Yeah. Why?” She just smiled, grabbed her coat and headed for the door. “Oh, I’m Hayden McLeod. You boys coming or what?”
