Three Courageous Words (Mission: Six)
He was the same Graham she’s known and loved in medical school, yet different.
His body was honed, his muscles tight and strong and his eyes… Those gorgeous blue eyes she’d fallen into on their first group project were somehow different. Although still the same blue, they appeared to see more and have more depth than before. The lines around the corners of his eyes added character and the scar on his chin made her want to reach out and touch it.
As quickly as the thought sprang into her mind, she pushed it away and returned her attention to the road in front of the van.
Ahead, on the left, was a field of long grass with a patch of dirt next to the road. Rusted metal lay in a heap in the middle of the dirt.
“There!” Angela pointed to the dirt road past the tank track. “Turn there.”
Diesel only slowed enough to negotiate the turn and then sped along the bumpy road, barely more than a rutted track.
Big Jake’s brow crinkled as he glanced her way. “Are you sure this is the way?”
“Positive.” She nodded toward a blue, tin shack. “I remember that blue building.”
“And the one with the orange roof,” Brenda added, pointing to the structure.
“The village is another mile or more along this road and it’s tucked into the side of a hill.”
“As long as the dust settles before the rebel attackers get to where we turned off, they won’t have a clue we came this way.”
“If the dust settles,” T-Mac said.
Angela glanced back at the cloud of dust rising up behind them.
