Spent most of today actually writing. Catherine is speaking volumes now. I am just as thrilled as you will be watching her story unfold in front of my very eyes.
Just as a teaser. Here is a sneak peak into the life of Catherine DuMont Worthington.
My heroine in "Feathers in the Wind".
Enjoy. - Feedback is welcomed and encouraged.
“See for yourself Ma’am?” Tom pointed to some footprints in the soft mud along the creek. “These weren’t made by work boots. These are flat shoes. And over here it looks like the person laid down up against the bank facing the house.”
“Over here is a few cigarette butts.” Replied Seth. “Looks like whoever was here was her for a while. By the looks of it.”
Catherine looked around the farm to see if there was anyone around that shouldn’t be. After her conversation with Detective Bryce, maybe she was in danger. Maybe she should get a body guard and soon.
“Did you follow the tracks and see where there came on the property?” She asked the boys.
“Yeah, Josh here followed them back to the road about two miles that way.” Tom said pointing in the opposite directions of the house. “Looks like they came through the hay field to the creek and then just followed the creek to get closer to the house and to stay out of sight.”
“Well, Thanks boys.” Catherine told them. “Stay alert and let me know if you see anyone or anything else out of the ordinary. Seth, can you please drive me back to the house.” Catherine asked rather urgently as she made her way back to the four wheeler.
Back at the house, Catherine made a call to Detective Bryce and left a message on his voicemail.” She hung up the phone and stood there staring out the kitchen window that overlooked the pasture.
“Ma’am” Seth interrupted her thoughts. “I think it might be a good idea if maybe me or one of the boys stayed out here with you at night.”
“You know Seth” Catherine replied “I think you might be right. Who’s handy with a gun?” she asked.
“All of us a pretty good with a rifle. Tom’s best with pistol and was in the Army for a couple years before coming back home. He might be your best bet.”
