“You catch on quick. We make a good team, and that makes me happy,” Wyatt said.
Val opened his mouth to ask another question, but he was cut off when all three of his dogs jumped up and ran to the window, barking.
“What’s that?” Wyatt’s voice rose just enough to set Val’s nerves on edge.
“Something outside, I think.” Val stood up and started across the room.
Val stopped short when Wyatt barked, “Stay away from the windows! Is everything locked?”
“Ye-yeah.” Val slapped his hand against his thigh. “Hey, guys, shush. Come on, it’s okay. Go lie down.” Then he spoke to Wyatt. “The outside lights are on too. Just like you said to do.”
“No. It’s probably just a raccoon or something.” Val sat back down on the couch. His dogs had quieted and were scattered around the floor, lying down again.
“I’ll be fine. If there was someone near the house, the boys would be barking up a storm.”
“Call that number if you have any doubts. Promise me.” Wyatt sounded worried.
“I promise. How much longer will you be gone?”
“I have a few things to check out in the morning but I think I can catch a flight back tomorrow night. Or the morning after, if I can’t get a ticket so soon. Call me before you leave for work in the morning,” Wyatt told him. “And Val, use that number. Even if you’re just uncomfortable.”
“I will.” Val disconnected the call and stretched on the couch with the phone on his chest. He wished Wyatt were there with him now.
Run for the Roses can be purchased through Amazon
