The Eyes Of A Fetch (Excerpt 435) Hope
So much time has passed now that Lyla fears the worst for Crispin. Has he fallen victim to this appalling night? He should have reached out to her by now in some way to let her know he is okay. The fire chief has finally emerged from his inspection of the property and is approaching the group. Lyla feels nervous and braces herself for bad news.

Lyla blinks slowly in relief. She is worried they could not locate her cat but extremely glad no body has been found , meaning there is still hope that Crispin is alive and well.
