Excerpt from All for Hope by Olivia Hardin
Brennan nearly jumped out of his skin when the doorbell jolted him from sleep. He rubbed his eyes and looked at the clock, realizing it must be Mark Terrance. When he opened the door, the man looked at him with a bit of a smirk on his face.
"Were you sleeping?" he asked.
Bren touched his face and he could feel the indentations left by the pillow on which he’d been laying. "Just a nap," he replied and motioned Mark inside.
"Now, what is it you have of Hope’s?" Terrance inquired, wasting no time.
"Sit down." Brennan gestured to the couch. "Would you like anything to drink, Mr. Terrance?"
"Call me Mark, and no, I just want to know what all this is about."
"Last night I was in Houston, and I ran into Hope at a service station."
Mark's face paled. He closed his eyes a moment and took a deep breath. "She spoke to you?"
"Yes, I ran her down when I recognized her. She begged me not to tell anyone I saw her, but something told me when I read about that letter in the paper that you knew she was still alive."
"I knew," the man answered.
"Do you have the letter? Can I read it?"
Mark studied him a moment.
"Please." Brennan begged when he saw the hesitation. "I don't want to do anything to hurt her.""The cops have the actual letter, but I made a copy before I let them have it. Here." He pulled the folded note from his wallet.
