Go faster.
Go faster.
Go. Sodding. Faster.
Valor tapped his foot impatiently, trying to ignore the periodic glares from the helicopter pilot. “Can this go any faster?”
Silence.
That’s a no, then?
The second Valor stepped off the helicopter, he reached for his mobile. He tried Bishan first, hoping against all the odds his beloved Bish would be conscious and able to pick up. No answer. Right.
He tried Detective Inspector Spurling next with no luck. He called Hugh, but his old schoolmate didn’t answer either. No news might be good news. I hope.
A friendly police officer met him once he’d gotten away from the helicopter and refused to give him any information while driving him through Windermere. Valor sat, frozen, unable to get his hands to stop shaking. Visions of Bishan covered in dust and blood kept flashing in front of his eyes.
All day an uneasy sensation had gnawed at his stomach. He’d ignored it, assuming all his family drama had caused his inner turmoil. Hugh’s call had brought all the nightmares of the last six months rushing back to him.
As they swerved around a corner, Valor got his first view of what had happened to the beautiful little restaurant. Smoke drifted above a partially collapsed building. The fire was clearly put out, though the firefighters continued to mill about outside.
How had any of his family survived?
Valor stumbled out of the vehicle when it finally came to a stop. “Bish?”
“Val?”
He barely heard Reggie, who stopped him from ducking under the caution tape. “I have to—”
“Bishan isn’t in there. They managed to extract him safely from underneath a collapsed wall. We’ve sealed it off to investigate for arson and attempted murder, and your presence will only muddy the waters for us.” Reggie grabbed him firmly by the shoulder and led him over to one of the unmarked SUVs. “Let’s get you over to the hospital to see him.”
