Mc could tell something was wrong
as soon as Bron hung up. He was going nuts trying
to get through to her. He motioned Kevin out of the
studio. “Something is wrong, I know it. She would
have never had done that. Leave your cell on and
I will call you.” Mc turned and left the studio.
Mc was in a panic forty-five minutes had already passed.
Kevin began to get upset, Mc knew
her better than anyone did. Kevin turned and saw
the rest of the fellas staring at him.
At the hotel, the girls had returned
from shopping and Mary went to Bron’s room. She knocked
on the door and it opened. “Bron I found this, you
are going to love it,” she announced. Mary looked
around and didn’t see her. She walked back to the
bedroom and the bathroom. As she came back out, she
saw a note taped to the back of the bedroom door.
Mary walked up to the door and pulled
the note down. “Oh, this can’t happen.” Mary ran
out of the suite and down to Jake’s. As she went
down the hall, Mary saw that all the doors had notes.
“Oh God… JAKE!” she screamed.
Jake came flying out of his room,
“Mary what’s wrong?”
“She’s not here Jake,” Mary cried
out as she raised her hand and pointed to the notes.
The elevator dinged, the doors opened,
and Mc came charging out, “Where is she?”
Mc saw the look on the faces of Jake
and Mary. “Jake tell me you weren’t stupid!” he shouted.
Mary pointed to the door and Mc saw
the notes. “Oh Christ!” He ran down the hall tearing
the notes off the doors and ran into Kevin’s suite.
Mc searched the room all her stuff was gone. He saw
the disk on the desk, grabbed it, and ran back down
the hall yelling for Mary.
Mary stepped out of her room hearing
Mc call her. Mc ran up to her, “Do you know what
this is?” thrusting it towards her. Mary shook her
head no. “Can you find out for me?” He asked.
“Yes, come on.” Mary replied, as
she took the disk from him.
Mary walked over and jammed the disk
into the machine. “It’s nothing Mc. It’s just the
last chapter of Night Train.” Mary looked at it and
noticed Bron had made some changes. I wonder what
that is all about.
“Something isn’t right here.” Mc
“What do you mean, the notes, she’s
not here.” Mary said in a panicky voice.
“Yeah but he wouldn’t take all her
stuff, just her. He was here no doubt but he doesn’t
have her.” Mc said angrily. “I gotta call Kevin,
he is going to be worried sick,” he said as walked
to Mary’s phone.
“Kevin, it’s Mc. She’s not here
and Lenny was.” Mc said into the phone. Mary sat
and listened to half of a conversation. “Where are
you going now? Okay, when I know more I’ll call you.
I’m borrowing Jake.” Mc paused and looked at Mary.
“I know, I’ll find her. I want you to know I think
this is Bron’s doing not Lenny’s so relax. You can
thank your cousin for this one. I’ll call you at
your rehearsal.” He quipped as he hung up the phone.
“Jake!” Mc called. Jake was at
the door immediately. “As much as I hate this, I
need help,” Mc frowned. Jake looked at him. “I need
Webster,” Mc said. Jake started to smirk. “This
is Bron’s doing Jake, not that bastard,” He barked,
as he handed Jake the notes. “How do you know?”
Jake stood there challenging him. “I don’t it’s just
a feeling, get Webster,” he answered him.
“Okay, I’ll find him,” Jake said
as he left the room.
Mary left her suite and headed for
Nick’s knowing the girls had finally come upstairs.
She walked in they were standing around Nick’s laptop
“Ladies, we have a problem, Bron
is not here,” Mary sighed.
Shock crossed their faces and they
looked at Mary. “That explains this,” Amy said.
“Explains what?” Mary asked.
“Come here and look,” Amy told her.
Mary’s face expressed shock also,
“Oh no, Kevin will kill her.”
Gillian started to giggle, “That
took guts to do that.” The girls began to laugh;
they couldn’t believe it.
Mc walked in the room; he was upset
and couldn’t figure what was so funny. “This isn’t
a good time girls,” he yelled at them.
Mary looked at him, “You’re right.
She left on her own.”
Mc’s eyebrows furrowed together and
Mary pointed to the laptop. Mc walked over to it,
read it and began to laugh with them. “Man that took
brass balls to do that. She must have been really
Jake came strolling in through the
door, “What is so funny?”
Mc turned to him, “Relax Jake, Lenny
doesn’t have her, but we will find her.”
“How do you know?” Jake said to
Mc smiled, “Listen to this. Dear
Mrs. Richardson. I found this article about your
son. It is amazingly accurate. I think you should
read it. Do you know your son has a dark side? My
regards. Kaylin. P.S. Kevin is awaiting your response.”
Mc snickered, “She put in the link to Night Train.”
Jake looked at him in flabbergasted,
“His mother, she sent it to his mother!”
They all were in a fit of laughter
when they heard shouting from the hallway. “Mc!
Hey Mc! Where are you?”
“I’m in here Webster,” Mc called
to the hallway.
A man walked into the room. “Wow
that was fast,” Mc said.
“I wasn’t far and Jake said it was
an emergency.” The gentleman answered him.
“Hey, how have you been?” Mc asked
“Fine, what’s the emergency?” The
man asked him.
“I lost something and I need you
to help me find it, very discreetly,” Mc said somberly.
Webster started laughing when he
looked at Jake who was wearing a huge grin. Webster
knew there was only one thing in the world that was
important enough for Mc to call him.
“Don’t bust on me Webster. I’m not
in the mood,” Mc warned him.
Webster straightened himself up and
tried to pull himself together. “Would that thing
be about five foot two, have brown hair, and have
a nasty temper.”
The girls started laughing. They
had no idea what or who this person was, but he knew
“Yes, Okay,” Mc ground out.
“So how is Bron? Besides lost at
the moment,” Webster snickered.
“She’s doing better, until I find
her.” Mc answered him.
“I’m glad to here that. Losing C.W.
was very hard on her and Bounce,” Webster smiled.
“Well come on, there is something
else I want to talk to you about,” as Mc guided him
out the door.
Mary looked at Jake, “Who is that?”
Jake answered her, “That’s Mike Webster,
he’s an old friend of Mc and Bron’s.”
“What does he do, he’s wearing a
gun?” Mary asked nervously.
“He’s a detective with the Chicago
P.D.” Jake responded.
Mary began to laugh, “Oh Bron, you
created a real problem for yourself this time.”
Amy looked at Jake, “What are they
going to do?”
Jake shook his head, “Gee Amy, I
would say try and find Bron without anybody knowing
“Can they do that?” Amy continued.
“Come on Amy, when it comes to Bron
there is nothing Mc won’t do. We’re just lucky we
are in Chicago,” Jake spoke.
Amy looked at Jake and Mary totally
confused, “I don’t get it,”
Jake was getting irritated with her
stupidity, “Get What?”
“I would think a cop is the last
thing Mc would want around him,” she stated to Jake.
“Amy if the cops could have taken
him down they would’ve years ago. Besides this is
personal,” Jake answered her quietly.
They heard Mike call from the hallway.
“All right but you owe me big time Mc. I’ll keep
Mc strolled back into the room and
looked at Mary, “I need to use your fax machine, but
I don’t know how to use it.”
“Come on,” she said to him walking
out of the room.
