“There could be muggers in that park.”
Kelly Banks watched as Jackson Creed walked on as if he hadn't even noticed he'd given Mr. Spokane the brush-off. Sure, school was out and a teacher couldn't stop a student from going through the park, and Jackson was a big kid, but he was going through a park where there had been some bodies found of late, and he was only fifteen.
If Creed was going to survive an attack he would have to be a very bad boy and that would make things . . . interesting. Kelly figured as long as she was going to be stuck in this one-and-a-half horse town pretending to be a city she might as well keep on with exactly those things her father didn't approve of. She frisked her bag to make certain the items she needed were there, threw it over her shoulder, and headed off to the park.
Of course one of those things her father didn't approve of was murder, storming about the house spewing about how one these days she was going to get caught and sent to prison.
"Not with Barney and George running the police department," she had said, because if this one-and-a-half horse town had anything going for it, that was it.
That, and a park right next door to dump dead bodies in.
And plenty of "bad boys" willing to go into the park with her.
She tossed a wink over her shoulder at Mr. Spokane. "Later, Dad," she said.
