Rest. Try not to worry. He would call her the minute he knew more. Rebecca drove to Vintage & Classics. She parked in front of her shop and let herself in. She dropped her keys on the desk, disturbing Maurice, who was asleep in the in basket. The cat raised his head and meowed for attention. She obliged, then strode into the car shop, hopeful that her senior mechanics had made progress in her absence. Frank and Billy Lee were bent over the front left hub of a Phantom III. Frank cocked his head when the door opened.

Walt had given her a job, paid the medical bills and provided Juanita with an uncritical haven. After she’d lost the baby, she kept house for him and finished high school, as he insisted. She would have still been living in his home with DANGEROUS CURVES / 41 Rebecca if she hadn’t fallen in love with Val Kearney.
