Excerpt #2 from “Opening the Veil”

Somewhere on the road between Barling Grove and Jefferson, while my body drove on 

autopilot and my brain played the meeting with Patricia over and over again, I happened to 

glance over at the car that passed me headed to Barling Grove. At first I had no idea why I 

looked until I realized it was because I recognized the car. Todd was tooling along to the town I 

had just left and judging by the look on his face, that I saw for just the briefest moment, he was 

shocked and I’m pretty sure ticked off that I was leaving there. 

Now, under almost all circumstances outside of trying my hand at trailing murder suspects, I 

drive safely at or under the speed limit depending on weather allowances. Despite having no idea 

what would cause Todd to have that mixture of emotions cross his face when he saw me, I 

stomped my foot on the gas and drove as fast as my aging Honda would allow, which turned out 

to be pretty darn fast actually. When I said “stomped my foot on the gas” I probably should have 

mentioned that I looked in the rearview and saw Todd’s brake lights first. Getting back to the 

office before he caught up to me seemed like the best course of action.

Although I kept checking my rearview, Todd did not show up as fast as I thought he would, 

so I figured he must have lost some time turning around. Either way, I was nervous about living 

out a car chase scene on my way back home and didn’t relish the idea of becoming an auto 

fatality, so when I reached Jefferson I slowed down to a mere 15 mph over the speed limit. 

As soon as it seemed safe, I let my speed climb back up a bit, but I noticed Todd in my 

rearview then and how he was gaining on me. Thankfully I made it to Kensington Falls before he 

caught up, which meant he would be forced to slow down too and stop at all the signs. It didn’t 

give me much of an advantage, but I did manage to park my car and open the office door before 

he came to a screeching halt in front. I had wanted to lock the door behind me and even get into 

Artie’s office, which Todd didn’t have a key for, but for such a big guy he moved fast and 

shoved through the door before I could turn the lock.

I jumped back but slipped and fell on my butt. Before I could scramble backwards out of his 

way, Todd was standing over me and pulling me up by my shoulders. He held me in the air that 

way, my feet dangling inches above the ground, and stared in my face, breathing hard and 

looking ready to kill me. I couldn’t say anything, I just stared in fear, not sure what I could do to 

“What were you doing there?” His voice was low and feral sounding.

His breathing was back to normal, but his eyes were on fire, no hint of the flirty creep that 

bugged me every day. I was certain beyond a shadow of a doubt that this was the real Todd, all 

pretenses gone, and realized how wrong I had judged him over the years. Maybe he wasn’t 

brainy enough to pull off a crime that required planning and finesse, but he was more than 

“I said,” he hissed, giving me a ragdoll shake that made my teeth bang together painfully. 

“What were you doing in Barling Grove?”

“Visiting a friend,” was all that I could get out in the worst possible squeaky mouse voice I 

had ever heard come out of my mouth.

“Don’t lie to me. I know you’ve been checking up on me. Tell me what you were doing 

Todd took a couple of hard steps forward, still holding me up as if I didn’t weigh more than a 

child, and slammed me into his office door. I heard the door crack and felt my head and 

shoulders reverberate with the force. When I opened my eyes he was barely an inch away, his 

“I could make you tell me the truth,” he sneered, pulling his face away enough to look down 

at my trembling body. “I could take you seven ways to Sunday right now, each one harder and 

more painful than the last, until you beg to tell me.” 

Pressing himself against my chest, grinding his chest into my breasts, he gave me a 

lascivious smirk and then stuck his tongue out and licked up the side of my face as far as he 

could reach. When I tried to move my head away from him he ended his act with a bite to my 

cheek, hard enough for me to cry out, but not enough to draw blood.

New Year

I have been busy with work, moving, and other personal stuff that's been going on. I am hoping to get back to reviewing and reading very soon. I am reading a couple books right now. It's just a lot has been going on and I am sorry that I haven't been very active. My New Year's Resolution is to read a bunch of books this year and review every single one. Who knows if it will happen but that is my number one goal when it comes to reading. I have a bunch of other goals too but just one for when it comes to reading. I am open to suggestions on good books to read. Lately I have been looking at a lot of Young Adult books that I missed out on because they were published after I graduated. Shoot me a message if you have any thoughts or suggestions on how i can improve the page. Thanks so much.
