As soon as Miranda was on her way, Logan and Emily climbed into his SUV and headed for the lake cabin. As they arrived, the back side of the home was deserted. They quickly ran around to the front where the coroner’s van was pulling away, followed by an ambulance without its lights on.
“Oh no,” Emily whispered. Her heart was beating so fast. She couldn’t breathe. She was going to throw up. “Russell!” she screamed. “No! Russell!” It was Daniel all over again. Only she still loved Russell. But Daniel had died because of her, so the pain of his death had been just as excruciating.
Logan grabbed her so she wouldn’t flee into the middle of the crime scene. “Calm down. It’ll be okay.”
“I’m right here, Em,” Russell said stoically as he stepped out from behind a police vehicle.
A whimper escaped her as she pulled away from Logan to run to her boyfriend. He caught her in his arms.
“Oh my God! What happened? Are you okay?” she questioned, desperately checking his torso for any signs of injury.
“I’m okay,” he murmured, pulling her close again. “I didn’t get a scratch on me.”
“What happened, big brother?” Logan asked, stepping up to them.
