................... The door opened and Kelly ran in
 
“Hey” she skidded to my feet Tommy had been and got a blanket and wrapped me in it my fingers shaking playing with the charms on the bracelet that Levi had given me the night before “Rhia who was on the phone?” I looked at her as she rubbed my hands “Damn you’re burning up” She looked worried “Who was on the phone?” she got up and ran some paper towel under the cold water in the bathroom just off the office.
 
“Ian” Kelly dropped the towel and looked at me, she blinked a couple of times before squeezing out the towel and coming over to me she held it to my forehead.
 
“Tom can you go back to the farm and tell Ethan I’ll be home later”
 
“Sure” he nodded he knew not to ask. Tom walked out
 
“He called your cell?”
 
“No here” I pulled the blanket tighter round me the door opened again and Levi and Isaac walked in.
 
“That son of a bitch just called her” Kelly was on her feet and in Isaacs face “Aren’t you guys supposed to have a handle on him or a leash”
 
“Kel it’s not his fault” I groaned as Levi came over
 
“Baby you okay?” he touched my face “Where did this fever come from?”
 
“He knows where I work and he knows about you” I looked at Levi. Isaac grabbed his cell and hurried over to the phone in the office and started talking hurriedly. He paused and looked round
 
“Take her home and get her a doctor” Isaac instructed “Kelly can you stay here and take care of any customers” Kelly nodded as Levi scooped me up in his arms and carried me out to his car. I watched at Levi hurried round and got in the driver’s seat the muscle in his cheek twitching.
 
“I’m taking you to the walk in” he said peeling out of the parking lot.
 
“I’m fine” I tipped my head back
 
“Rhia like hell you are that… that..” I put my hand on his arm.
 
“Levi just take me home” he sighed and turned the car at the light to head for the house we pulled into the drive way. I reached for the handle and stepped out into the warm sun.
 
“Let me” he bent to pick me up” I shook my head
 
 “I’m okay… it took me by surprise that he called” I sat on the steps of the porch and shrugged off the blanket “Levi when will it end” I looked up at him as he walked over “I feel like I’m in a recurring nightmare where you can’t get away from the demon chasing you”
 
“Ike will do everything he can I’m sure of it” Levi sat down with me “I’m worried that this will push you over the edge”
 
“I’m scared as well” I leant my head on his shoulder “But not for the same reason”
 
“I don’t’ understand”
 
“When will you think enough is enough… when will you think that I’ve got way to much baggage”
 
“I’m not even going to grace that with an answer” he got up and walked to the door and unlocked it and walked inside, I sighed and got to my feet and followed him he was leaning against the fireplace. “I will never feel like that I would never have gotten into this with you and I would have never asked you to live with me if I wasn’t prepared to take the good with the bad” he turned to look at me “And yes if I thought it would help you I’d do exactly what Evan did to Kelly” he crossed the room “I love you, I’m in love with you and I’m planning on seeing the rest of my life out with you Rhia and I swear if this guy thinks he can keep screwing with you then he’s going to have to deal with me as well as the FBI”
 
“He did it for the money” I looked at him
 
“What?”
 
“He killed them for the money he thought he could get round me to get the money from the life insurance” I swallowed and took a deep breath “I don’t know if you’ll understand this but I got half a million when my parents died split with my sister then I got another two hundred and fifty thousand when I lost Kai and Ethan” I walked to the couch and sat down he sat on the coffee table in front of me “I still have all the money apart from what I took out for the funerals and the headstones for Ethan and Kai” I chewed my lip nervously.
 
“But you’re working two jobs” his eye brows knitted together
 
“I have the money in an account I forget I have it sometimes because it doesn’t replace them. It doesn’t make it easier” I shook my head “But the thing that gets me s how did he think he was going to get his hands on the money” I shrugged “Was he planning on killing me as well so everything would go to Laura” the color drained from Levi’s face “No he knows about us and where I work”. Levi moved ontot he couch and sat with me curled into him. “I need to face him… I need to suck it up and do what Ike wants me to do and maybe this son of a bitch will leave us alone”………………….
