Exclusive excerpt from Twilight’s Encore
Ty watched over the loaders as they carefully placed the crate in the back of his truck. He closed the tailgate and turned to thank the store manager for doing such a good job of lightening his bank account. “I hope you feel bad about this, you old codger.”
The man just smiled, well aware he’d made a good sale today. “Come on now, Mr. Garrett. A purchase such as this is an investment in the future.”
“Whose? Your grandchildren?” Ty shook his head and climbed into the cab. He started the motor and with a wave out the window, drove toward the highway home. It had taken longer than he wanted but it would be worth it in the end. He couldn’t wait to see Katy’s face when she saw it hanging in the theatre. He’d had to drive damn near to Canada before he found a dealer carrying the right merchandise.
She’d be disappointed; Ty had promised he would be back tonight. That wasn’t going to happen now. Even if he drove straight through it would take three hours to get there. At least she’d given up the hotel room at his insistence. If it were his choice she’d be in his bed, but since her brother was staying with them they’d decided on her having the room down the hall that she’d occupied before. For now.
That hadn’t stopped him from some late night rendezvous however. It was actually fun tiptoeing around in his own house in order to get some booty. Ty grinned. He could just hear what Katy would say if she heard him call their lovemaking a booty call. He couldn’t wait to get home and see her again. It had only been a few hours and already he missed her.
Ty had tried dating over the years. He’d even come close to love a couple of times. There was a woman last fall he’d dated and thought that she could be the one, but then an old friend of Jared’s came to town and stole her away. In the end it wouldn’t have mattered anyway. As soon as Katy came back he knew there was no one else. They’d wasted so many years apart. But, no more.
He still had the ring he’d bought her in high school and planned on placing it upon her finger when he returned. It wasn’t near as fancy as the rock Katy’s ex had weighed her down with, but that was okay. He’d scrimped and saved as a teen because he’d chosen it as a gift of his love, and there was no price tag you could place on that. When he was closer to home, he’d give Jared a call and have him take Kyle out for a night on the town. Maybe stop at the store for some strawberries and champagne. Ty grinned. He would never have taken himself for a romantic, but he certainly was when it came to Katy.
He almost missed the warning chirp from his phone. He turned down the music and listened, but there were no incoming calls. Ty shrugged off the foreboding feeling twisting his gut in knots and lowered the window, whistling. He drove another ten miles before it dawned on him what that beep might mean. Jared’s new security system.
His hands tightened on the wheel and his foot pressed down on the gas pedal. He kept an anxious eye on the road until he found a place to pull over. Signaling, Ty turned in and slid to a dust raising halt. He grabbed his cell from the console and started thumbing, in search of the app that would connect him with the theatre’s new camera system. Why hadn’t he paid more attention when Jared walked him through everything after the install? He jabbed the little icon and waited for the application to load.
C’mon, c’mon already.
Shit, he only had one bar. Ty hopped out of the cab of the truck and using his arm like an antenna, wandered around the side of the road looking like an idiot. Suddenly the picture came in and what he saw stopped him in his tracks.
Kyle, at least it looked like Kyle—kind of hard to tell with the whole Carrie thing going on—was wandering dazed among chunks of what seemed to be cement shards all over the floor of the main gallery. His hair was matted with blood and grotesque rivulets ran down his face.
“Kyle, what the hell happened?” Ty roared. Where was Katy? Fuck, he knew he shouldn’t have left town. “Kyle.” No response. Obviously the audio feed was down.
Ty jogged back to his pickup and gunned her back onto the road with chirping wheels and irate honks from fellow travellers. Shit, he was too far away to do any good. Hopefully, the motion detectors had done their job and set off an alarm for the police.
Using hands-free, Ty called Jared.
“Yeah, I see it,” were his friend’s opening words.
“What the fuck happened?” Ty was beyond frustrated. His foot pressed the pedal to the medal and the scenery became nothing more than a blur.
“I don’t know, man. Everything was fine when I locked up last night.”
Ty had given the men a much-needed weekend off after all the hard effort they’d put in, now he wished he hadn’t. “I have no sound on my end, how about yours?” He was desperate to learn of Katy’s whereabouts. She must have decided to show off the theatre to her brother. There was no way she’d leave his side if he were injured.
Unless she had no choice.
“Me either. Some… knocked the wiring out or the cops would already be there.” Jared’s words came through the truck’s radio disjointed as Ty moved in and out of range.
“Call now. I’m on the way.” Ty swallowed hard. “Make sure she’s all right.”
“Will do. Don’t worry, she’s probably looking for the first aid kit, you know Katy.”
Ty hung up. He sure as hell hoped that’s what was happening, but the twinge in his gut had turned into a stabbing pain.
