Chapter 7

The destination of the path remained a burning mystery, but Tammy innocently tossed fuel on the flames with a chance comment one day while they were watching television. The topic on Sesame Street was professions, which was the perfect opportunity for Lisa to ask her what Giddon did to earn a living.

Tammy eyed her suspiciously. "Gramma doesn't want I tell."

Lisa's heart lurched painfully. "Why not?"

Tammy shrugged her tiny shoulders, the large blue eyes imploring her not to pry.

It was one thing to ask casual questions of Giddon's daughter. It was quite another to trick her into betraying her father. Lisa let the matter drop, but she began to pay more attention to the activities around the house - like the shiny black car that sometimes came up the driveway and followed the path back into the woods without stopping at the house. About thirty minutes later it would return and leave the way it had come. When Lisa questioned Sarah about the car, she passed it off as a friend of Giddon's, and quickly changed the subject.

What was down that path that no one wanted to talk about, and why did Giddon insist that his houseguest should not wander around alone? What did Giddon do to afford such finery? And most important of all, was she or Giddon's family in any danger?

The questions plagued her until one evening when the black car returned. Sarah and Tammy were putting up groceries when Lisa announced she was going to take a walk. Sarah apparently hadn't noticed the car. She smiled and waved a hand in dismissal. "Go ahead. We can handle this job by ourselves."
