HIDDEN SHADOWS | EXCERPT
“Oh, one more thing before we get started today.” Jenna snapped her fingers. “Know what this is?” She held out a crumpled piece of notepad paper for Molly to examine.
Molly’s eyes scanned the short, cryptic message:
Your time’s coming.
Looking confused and apprehensive Molly narrowed her eyes. “Weird. Who wrote this?”
“Don’t know.” Jenna shrugged her shoulders. “That’s why I asked you. When I got here this morning, it was stuck to my office door.”
“Really weird.” Molly repeated her sentiment. “Maybe it’s a mistake. Possibly meant for another doctor? Sounds like an appointment time or something. I don’t know. I’ll ask around if you want me to.”
“Yeah, sure. If you have time, that’d be fine. No biggie though.” Wadding the paper in a ball, she tossed it into the nearest trash can, banking it. “Whoo, hoo!” She threw her arms in the air, laughing, and slapped Molly’s hand for a high five.
When Jenna’s watch gave a whining beep, she glanced down and knew it was time to get moving. “And the day begins.” She smiled at Molly and tapped her watch. “Would you mind setting up while I go get my fuel, please? As usual we were running around like chickens with our heads cut off this morning. I only got one cup of coffee at breakfast and that was about…two hours ago,” Jenna estimated. “Time for another pick-me-up.” She grinned and trailed off to the break room while Molly made her way down the hall to get ready for the first appointment.
