Terry Haggerty was no pushover. She had gone to work at sixteen to save money for college,
which is where she met Rook. Before the kids came, they'd often spent weekends at campsites
throughout the region. Rook was an avid fisherman and hunter, and although she hadn't had
any familiarity with firearms before she met him, Terry now owned two or three guns and was
proud of her ability to shoot.

Under Rook’s tutelage, Terry always made sure her guns were in excellent condition. She went
now to the gun cabinet in the living room. She kept most of her attention on the sounds from the
back porch. From the cabinet she took out her .22 pistol and loaded it. Then she stuck it into the
waist of her jeans, and pulled her shirt out to hide it.

She went into the kitchen. She paused at the door to the back porch and drew a breath.
Someone out there swore quietly, and there was the tinkle of glass.

Enough, she thought, and opened the door.

Grant White and Rick Carrington stood in the dusk outside. They looked in at her with dull
surprise on their faces. She relaxed. She knew them well. They were friends of her late son,
Loren, even though they'd been a year ahead of him at school. But what the devil were they
up to?

"Hi, guys," she said. "Que pasa?"

Rick snarled in response, and her hackles rose as she realized they were both filthy, covered
with mud and dried blood. Something was very wrong here. She pulled the gun out of her
waistband. "Just stop right there," she said, pointing it at Rick, who stood slightly in front of
Grant at the broken window.

Rick snarled again, but Grant laid an arm on his shoulder. "Hi, Ms. Haggerty," he said in an
oily voice. Her hackles rose even further at the sound of it. "We were just wondering where
Greg was."

"He's upstairs having a nap."

Grant grinned in a particularly nasty way. She'd never seen such a feral expression on anyone's
face. "Oh, I don't think he is," he said. "I think maybe he's out looking for... Jessa."

Unconsciously she took a step or two toward the boys at the window. Their eyes... she leaned
forward for a better look.

Rick's arm snaked out faster than she would have believed and seized her sleeve. Terry
staggered back and broke free. Rick shrieked wordlessly at her, a sound that didn’t sound as
though it could have come from a human throat. Grant shoved him aside and tried to force
himself through the broken window. She watched in horror as the glass gashed his flesh. He
ignored it. Terry realized she was in mortal danger. She raised her gun and discharged it into
his face. He slumped forward without a word. Though her ears rang from the shot, she heard
the thud thud thud of Rick Carrington’s feet as he fled into the woods.
