The Eyes Of A Fetch (Excerpt 406) He Could Be
After locking up for the day, together all three friends stroll arm in arm along the tree-lined sidewalk. Once at the café, they spend two and a half hours conversing about plans for the future and reflections from the past. They also end up discussing the recent loss of the vineyard.
“It was horrible, Lyla.” Destry states as her eyes tear up. “Duff Industries tore us apart as a working family. Severo, the pickers, the staff, all are like family and they stripped that away from us. Not only have we lost our rights to the land but we’ve lost our dignity and pride as a whole.” Destry looks at Marcus then she stands up. “Please excuse me for a moment.” Marcus waits until he sees Destry enter the restroom and he turns on Lyla.
“See what your buddy has done? He destroys anyone that stands in his way and he does not care about the tactics he uses. That guy is evil and I swear. . .” Marcus stops speaking as he looks around.
“What?” Lyla asks as she watches him glancing about. She completely understands where he is coming from but she also knows much of the greed was due to Quinn, not Crispin. “What is it Marcus?” Lyla asks again.
“Nothing.” He says as he turns to look down the hall where Destry went. Thinking he is afraid Destry will walk up during this chat, she looks in that direction as well. “She hasn’t come out yet. Are you okay?” asks Lyla.
“I. . . I don’t want anything to happen to Destry or to you and Duff warned me not to get in the middle.” He looks behind him and then whispers, “He could be sitting here and we would never know it.”
