Buchanan sat in his office at police headquarters, going over some paperwork,
when there was a rap at the door. “Come
in” he responded haphazardly, as he continued to rifle through the reports on
his desk, which had his full attention at the moment.
woman wearing dark glasses, and a hat entered the room quietly, closing the door
softly behind her, and Bo didn’t notice right away that she was even in the
woman took off the dark glasses and removed her hat, allowing her light brown
curls to tumble past her shoulders. “Hello
Bo”. She smiled.
this Bo glanced up briefly and started to look back down again, when he stopped.
He looked back at the woman unbelievingly.
“MARTY? MARTY IS IT REALLY
YOU?” At this Bo was on his feet
and around the desk in a matter of seconds, hugging Marty Saybrooke/Thornhart
close to him, and she returning the hug with as much fervor.
“Marty…how have you been?…where’s Patrick?….how’s
Penny?….” Bo’s words tumbled over one another as he tried to contain the
excitement of seeing a close friend that he had only been able to keep in
sporadic contact with over the last few years.
a long story Bo, but one that I must share with you. And I have to tell you in advance Bo, that I need a favor.”
course Marty, you know I’d do anything for you and Patrick” Bo replied, as
he motioned for Marty to take a seat. He
then went around to his own chair and sat down. He smiled at the sight of his old friend, but remained
silent, waiting for Marty to speak.
Penny.” Marty started…
What about Penny?” Bo questioned with concern in his voice.
Although he had never met Marty and Patrick’s child, he had received
photographs, and because he had been so close to the couple, he felt very close
to the child as well. Bo got up and
walked around to Marty’s side.
ill Bo..very ill. She has Lupus,
like myself, only her case is worse than mine….” Tears began to well in
Marty’s eyes as she continued on, her voice cracking…. “she needs a kidney
sorry.” Bo said, putting his arm around Marty’s shoulder.
been on a donor list for months now, and we were recently notified that a donor
match was finally found for her in Cherryvale.” Marty continued.
“The surgery is scheduled for next Tuesday” Marty finished.
I don’t know what to say….just know that I’m here for you and Patrick and
Penny…anything I can do…just name it.” Bo replied.
you Bo. I hate to just drop all
this on you, but I needed to talk to a friend….and even though I know from
what you’ve told me that Carlo Hesser is dead, and so are the others connected
with the Men Of 21… still…I’m afraid that something might happen to
Penny…I know it sounds crazy Bo, but I am.
I’m scared.” Marty stated, visibly shaken at the mere thought of the
Men Of 21 who had terrorized she and Patrick and nearly killed her beloved
husband. “The favor I wanted to
ask you Bo, is if you might have any connections to the Cherryvale Police
Department….I would feel so much better if I knew that Penny was being watched
and kept safe during the times I’m not there….I’m there most of the time,
but they won’t let me stay in her room at night, and…” Marty rushed on, as
Bo intervened…. “Marty….” Bo stopped her.
“Consider it done. I’ll
make a call to Constable Crain and have him put one of his best men outside her
hospital room. Given the past
circumstances, it’s understandable that you would be frightened.
And even though Carlo and the two other men connected with the Men Of 21
are dead, we have no way of knowing if there were others.
Now don’t worry about a thing..leave everything to me.” Bo replied,
as he went around to his desk to make the call to Constable Crain in Cherryvale.
Bo made the call, Marty sat back, and thought back to happier times….times in
Ireland when she and Patrick first met. She
had thought him CRAZY at first! The
handsome stranger who had called her “darlin’” in that Irish accent of
his…he had rushed to her seat, in the Wild Irish Swann Inn, and
told her “It’s a matter of life or death…we have to pretend we’re
lovers” and at that he had taken her in his arms and kissed her passionately.
He then thanked her, and said “I thought all angels had halos”, and
then he walked away. She
smiled. It had taken him some time,
but he finally convinced her that he really was being chased by Irish Terrorists
out to kill him. During that time,
they fell in love. She remembered
the poem that he used to recite to her…. “Ah penny, brown penny, brown
penny. I am looped in the loops of
her hair.”…she smiled through her tears.
Patrick was and always would be the love of her life.
Marty had taken Patrick away, when the others believed he was dead, and
nursed him back to health, and they went on to live in hiding in Ireland…but
it wasn’t a bad life..because they had each other…and now…they had their
beautiful two year old baby…Penny, named after the poem that Patrick used to
recite to her, and now recited to their daughter at night, before she went to
sleep. At the thought of Penny and
her illness, fresh tears began to fall on Marty’s cheeks.
Marty…” Bo said softly. Marty
looked up to see him standing at her side.
“Everything’s going to be ok Marty.
I’ve contacted Constable Crain, and everything is set up.
He’ll have a guard outside Penny’s room 24 hours a day, until she’s
released. In fact the officer is on
his way to the hospital as we speak.” Bo said with a small comforting smile.
nodded, as she wiped at the tears on her face.
“Thank you Bo…thank you so much.
You’ve always been there for Patrick and I.” Marty replied as she got
up and hugged her friend.
no problem…” Bo said, as he hugged Marty back.
“You know I’d do anything for you guys.”
smiled back, now regaining her composure.
tell me Marty, where are you staying? And
is Patrick with you?” Bo questioned.
staying at the Waterfront Inn in Cherryvale.
It’s near the hospital in case I’m needed. Patrick wanted to come so much Bo, but under the
circumstances, he stayed back in Ireland. We
figured it would be best. He misses
you though Bo…he never stops talking about the good times you two used to
have.” Marty smiled, remembering how close the two friends were.
Bo….I’d better be getting back. I
want the hospital to be able to contact me if they need to.
Visiting hours are over, but I’m going to call and make sure Penny is
doing ok.” Marty said. “I’m staying in room 301, in case you need to get in
touch with me. Thank you SO MUCH
for all your help Bo. You’ve
helped to put my mind at ease.”
problem Marty.” Bo replied as Marty donned the dark glasses and hat once again
and prepared to leave. “I’ll be
in touch” he added as Marty turned to leave.
Marty said, as she quietly left the office.
walked back to his desk and sat down. “That
poor kid.” He said to himself. “At
least she’ll be safe.” He added, thinking of the guard that would be outside
Penny’s room until she was well.
that moment, in a dark parking garage outside the Cherryvale Hospital, an
officer was exiting his car. He had
been only too willing to volunteer for the job of guarding Penny Thornhart, when
he learned of the story involving Penny’s parents.
he walked up the corridor to Penny’s room, a lone dark figure, hid in the
shadows, and the officer didn’t notice, as he rounded the corner and walked
down the hallway. The figure
emerged and quickly exited the hospital, and got behind the wheel of a car,
parked in a far corner of the parking garage.
The car started, and before pulling away, an evil smile crossed the face
of the man who had been hiding in the shadows.
made her way back to her hotel, thinking she would call Patrick, to let him know
how things went with Bo, after she contacted the hospital to make sure Penny was
doing alright. She parked her car,
and walked towards her room, located at the back of the Inn.
As she fumbled with the key to the hotel room, two black gloved hands
suddenly appeared from behind Marty, one clamping over her mouth, and the other
holding her prisoner. She struggled to free herself, but to no avail.
The hand that was clamped over her mouth, was replaced with a damp cloth.
Marty couldn’t escape, and consciousness began to leave her.
Suddenly her world went black.
Marty regained consciousness, she had a difficult time focusing and had a
terrible headache, and her arms were tied with rope, behind the chair she was
sitting in. When she was finally
able to adjust her eyes to her unfamiliar surroundings, she noticed a figure
sitting in a chair in a dark corner of the room.
She couldn’t make out who the person was because of the dimly lit room.
“Who are you? What do you want from me?” Marty uttered.
hand reached out and switched on a small table lamp beside the chair, which
illuminated the room, and allowed Marty to make out who it was.
She gasped in horror and disbelief… “YOU!”.
Penny be alright? Will she make it
through her surgery ok? Who is the
dark stranger that has Marty held captive?
Since Bo is the only one who knows Marty is in town will he be able to
save her? Come back to this site to
find out, in Chapter Two of The Thornharts Return!
