Last week I introduced Starting Over, a Survive And Thrive story. It take place in St.Augustine Beach, Florida where Emily Kendrick, a physical ed teacher at the nearby college stumbles over a hurdle and falls. A runner sprints through the the waves to hurry to aid her. Binoculars slam against the railing of the widow’s walk where a stalker has been watching her for months. The infamous Clifford Lansdale says, “She’s mine.”
“Are you all right?”the runner said.
“Oh sure, I never stumble like this and the kids will be coming down for practice soon so I’ve got to be on top of my game to train them.Thanks for stopping by, my name is Emily Kendrick.”
“Patrick Corwin, what kids?”
“I coach the women’s track team at the college and we’re at the beach most days before the crowd.”
“I run early morning before office hours because I have to get up to Jacksonville before morning rush. He fished a business card from his running shorts. Call me, I’d enjoy getting to know you better, Emily.”
Patrick left before she had a chance to say no and she thought how could she ever go out with another man; Larry was the best husband in the world, her high school sweetie.
She made the usual plans for the afternoon unaware that Clifford Lansdale knew her schedule.
