Adams Point - Book 3 - Legacy Series


As Ethan and the others walked up from the dock they couldn’t help but notice that the
wraith hovering above the Inn seemed to be agitated. They didn’t know what it was that
caused the manifestation to writhe in such a way that it seemed almost as if it
would swoop down and engulf them all. They looked to see where the women were and felt
they were far enough away to be safe—that is if anyone could be safe near the Inn at this
point in time.

“Look at the way it’s moving. It seems as if it is extremely angry,” Lorenzo said
quietly, staring at the apparition.

“I know,” Ethan said, “I don’t believe I’ve ever seen it like that before.”

“Can’t say that I did either,” Henri ventured. “But something sure has that thing up
there angry as hell.”

“What makes you say that?” Ethan asked.

“Well, don’t you think it’s angry?”

“Yes, but at what?”

“How should I know?” Henri asked. “I simply stated a fact.”

“The women will be coming back soon,” Lorenzo interjected. “Maybe we ought to keep them
away from here.”

“Where would you suggest we send them?” Ethan asked.

“Maybe to town?” Henri answered. His comment seemed more of a question than a statement.
Ethan looked at Henri, then to Lorenzo. “Maybe Henri’s got a point there. It might be
better if we send the women off to town where they would be safe.”

“Don’t think they will go without an argument,” Lorenzo said, with a slight laugh.

“I guess you’re right…at least where Abigail is concerned,” Ethan answered.

“Not just Abigail, neither will Bernadette or Sabrina, you can bet on that,” Lorenzo said.

“Yes, I am almost certain they think they we wouldn’t be safe without them here to
protect us,” Henri said, his shoulders shaking with laughter.

Ethan looked at the other two men and wondered just what they would do if push came to
shove and they had to force their wives to leave them behind. And where the hell is Tony?
Ethan wondered. He should be around here somewhere, but where? I
haven’t seen him since I took the others to Caleb’s Cove. I know damn well he wasn’t on
the Abigail, and I know for certain he was standing with the others when I left—so where
did he go? And what is he up to? Questions, questions, but Ethan didn’t have any answers.
When he finally stopped thinking about Tony, and looked up he was surprised to see the
others staring at him.


“That’s what we want to know? What are you thinking about, Ethan? Lorenzo asked.
“Actually, I was wondering where Tony got off to. Did anyone see him leave?

“No, not really, he was standing with the rest of us when you took the Abigail out. When
we all went back toward the house I thought he was with us, but to tell you the truth, I
can’t honestly say he was,” Henri answered, perplexed.

“And neither can I,” Lorenzo said. “I thought he was, but like Henri, I can’t be sure if
he did walk up to the Inn with us…but he must have.”

“Well, we will have to worry about Tony later, right now what should we do about the
women?” Ethan asked.

“Ask them?” Lorenzo said. “You can’t make them do something they don’t want to do, so ask

“And if they say no, they won’t leave?” Ethan asked, looking from one to the other.
“If you can make Abigail leave, the other two will follow. So you see, Ethan, it’s all in
your ball park,” Henri said.

“Thanks,” Ethan said, “you guys are a big help.”

“You’re welcome!” Lorenzo said, with a smile in his voice, “Glad I could be of service.
