â€śToo little too late, Frank. Dead people canâ€™t help much at all.â€ť
Blake pushed off the counter. â€śGet out.â€ť
Frankâ€™s cold, dead eyes stayed glued to me while he drifted through
the wall and out of the room.
Blakeâ€™s phone rattled on the counter and I jumped. â€śWilliam,â€ť Blake
said after he read the text. â€śHe wants me in earlier to give us more time to go
over my testimony.â€ť
â€śDo whatever you have to do to put this man away. I want us to get
on with our life together.â€ť I glanced at the wall where Frank had disappeared to
make sure he was really gone.
â€śMy plan exactly.â€ť Blakeâ€™s bravery filled the room and I breathed in
the scent of it. It felt good to be strong in the face of a monster like Otto.
â€śItâ€™s a big day,â€ť I said.
â€śMaybe not the biggest.â€ť He reached out and skimmed the back of his
fingers against my cheek. â€śOr the most important. That would be the day I
finally found you.â€ť He held the side of my face in his palm and I laid a kiss in
the center of it. â€śGranted, itâ€™s up there. Iâ€™d do anything to keep you and my
mother safe,â€ť he said. â€śFamily is everything.â€ť
â€śThat it is.â€ť My thoughts drifted to the missing patriarchs of my
He took my demitasse cup, placed it under the spout, and pressed the
button on the silver machine. It gurgled, steamed, and brewed. He made my
espresso on most mornings now. One of our relatively new traditions that gave me
â€śThereâ€™s a marshal posted outside if you need anything while Iâ€™m at
the courthouse.â€ť Blake opened his hand in front of me, a quiet gesture of
support. I placed my hand in his and he kissed it gently. â€śAnother one will pick
me up to take me to the courthouse, and Iâ€™ll call as soon as we have a break.â€ť
Blakeâ€™s eyes were steeled with focus and readiness to face todayâ€™s
battle, to put away Ottoâ€”his own fatherâ€”who had hunted him and his mother for
most of their lives. Not that Otto knew that Blake was his son. Blake had kept
that carefully hidden from just about everyone.
However, my heart rode the currents of the wind. It howled and
whipped in waves along the rooftop patio. I hugged him, grateful to rely on his
strength and firmness, and yet frightened that there didnâ€™t seem to be enough of
anything to protect him or what we shared.
â€śYou have to have faith that this is going to work out,â€ť he said,
then kissed the top of my head. â€śIf you spend all your time worrying, thereâ€™ll
be no space left in there for me.â€ť His thumb caressed the thin skin that covered
His soft lips met mine when he kissed me, heart and soul. And true
to my early morning wish, time stood still.
â€śYouâ€™re okay?â€ť he asked after we parted.
I gave him a confident smile and a thumbs up sign. Our new life was
finally about to begin.

Addison Montgomery has finally found love with the man of
her dreams, Blake Greenwood, and is ready to live another
lifetime of happiness with him. But the morning theyâ€™re
supposed to bring closure to their dark, violent past,
all chances of a happily-ever-after turn as dead as the
ghosts she sees on a daily basis.
Now Addie must team up with her greatest enemy, embracing
her not-quite-perfect gift of reading art psychically. If
she succeeds, she will finally learn the truth behind her
fatherâ€™s and grandfatherâ€™s disappearances. If she fails,
every chance at love sheâ€™s ever hoped for will be
destroyed. But one thing is clear: she has to choose
between saving Blake or her family, and thereâ€™s no way
she can ever have both.
