The following story is a special military team has been brought in to search for a missing Senator's daughter. You can read an earlier snippet here and here. Captain Mack has just found the woman's horse, but no woman.
A horse whickered through the autumn trees. Mack signaled his team to move forward toward the archaeological site, trying to avoid marring the tracks. The path opened up in front of them to show flagging the scientists had left as well as a large chestnut Quarterhorse tied to one of the oaks outside of the site.
“Bryant, take a team and search the perimeter for more tracks.”
Something cracked under Mack’s foot as he moved and he bent, picking up a sprouting acorn with a frown.
“What are you doing here, buddy? It’s the wrong time of year for that.”
Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend. Happy reading! :)
