Chapter 2

Logan Day was on the phone with his mother. He rolled his eyes as she continued to express the concern she had for him. He had grown up in a small town along the Susquehanna River. He went to church every Sunday morning and night with his parents as did most of the town. He loved his mom, but knew she had a very specific view of how things should be. He did not share that view. In the years since he had left that small town, he had acquired fame and fortune. Many things he grew up with stayed with him others fell along the path. He was not by any means a playboy, but he did enjoy female companionship from time to time. He donated to charity and did his part to help the poor. He was just getting ready to defend himself when he heard his mother gasp, "Dear God!"

Alarm rose up within him. "Are you ok, Mom?"

"I just turned on the news. A little girl has broken through the ice. She is not going to make it much longer……Dear God no!" she gasped again.

"What, Mom, what is going on?" His alarm continued to grow.

"I know that young lady. My friend's daughter just jumped into the water after the child. Her name is Helen. Logan, she will never make it. Wait! It looks like she has a rope or something tied to her. Some men are holding it." His mother continued to give play by play. She gasped again. "The child let go of the ice, she went under." His mother was sobbing now. "Helen went under! Where is she? I see the rope. Where is she?"
