Chapter 5

Jock or I guess I better refer to him as William Arflin before we tend to forget his true identity awoke early. It was Sunday morning and it appeared he was the only one in the entire neighborhood awake. He needed to make a decision. He could sense Lacey was someone special, but he also realized she had entered into his life just a little too late.

He needed to find a way to disappear out of her life without arousing a lot of suspicion. He was afraid his alter ego might take over some night and he could possibly murder Lacey. That thought caused him to shudder and even brought tears to his eyes.

He must take whatever steps necessary to prevent that from happening. He didn't want to lose her, but the fugitive life he was now living made it impossible to make any permanent plans for any kind of a future. He also knew he could never have her for his own. He must devise a plan for leaving that would be believable to Lacey and also allow him a way back to see her if he ever got a chance.

Arflin spent most of that Sunday thinking up different ways to say good-bye to Lacey. Finally he came up with a plan he thought would make more sense. He would tell Lacey the magazine he was writing for was sending him to Alice Springs to do some human nature stories about the Aborigines living in that area. He would tell Lacey because he was born and raised in that area the magazine thought he was well qualified for that assignment. This would also make it easier for Arflin to pop in out without notice. He was sure that would satisfy Lacey's curiosity about him suddenly leaving town.
