Prologue: 10 years ago
– Jack –
“Wake up, Jack. We’re moving out. Your
assignment is done.”
My commanding officer barks his orders
out, jolting me awake. I open my eyes and try to focus as the dawn barely
lights the room around me.
“What do you mean, done? Last night we
were waiting on the search warrants. We had the whole family. It was going
down… today.” Propping myself up on my elbows, I shake my head, trying to
will myself to catch up.
Going over the last few days in my head,
this doesn’t make sense. I’ve been on the ground with my unit for months now
working special ops undercover with local law enforcement on a federal level,
collecting whatever evidence we could and rounding up witnesses. Everything
finally began to snowball together three days ago.
First one witness came forward, then a
second, then the third came in with solid proof. With Port Thomas being a
smaller city nestled near the coast in Oregon, law enforcement is always
underfunded so they were thankful for the additional manpower, as long as we didn’t
step on too many toes.
We had our mission in place for today,
but this wasn’t how it was supposed to go.
“It blew up. Shit went down a few hours
ago. Apparently, they knew we were coming. The Sparr family is gone. All of the
evidence against them is now speculative. Four witnesses are dead. Another two
are missing.” Then, as he opens his mouth, I see the hesitation in his eyes as
his body physically braces for a fight.
“Jack.” My commander starts then stops,
carefully considering his words with a frustrating pause. “It’s Jessa. Both her
and her brother’s bodies are missing.”
“What do you mean, missing?” Then the
weight of his words hits me. “Wait. What do you mean, bodies?” I bolt out of
bed onto shaky legs as I feel my world begin to crumble piece by piece.
He chose his words carefully. She isn’t
Her body is missing.
“Her family was in a car accident just
outside of town at the bridge. It looks like they went over the cliff. Her
parents’ bodies were recovered from the ravine along with the car. We don’t
know yet if it’s related but three other people from the company are dead as
well. It was a quick job.” He glances around my area as I feel panic begin to
flow through my veins.
“Maybe Jessa and Travis weren’t in the
car. Did you check their house?” I counter in a desperate attempt to think of
something they haven’t yet.
Thoughts quickly come to me. I just saw
both Jessa and Travis yesterday. We were all talking about how fast our high
school grad is coming up in a few months. For siblings, they are almost
inseparable. Twins who look nothing alike but finished each others sentences at
When I started this undercover op, six
months ago, I never expected to meet someone like Jessa. I was just a kid
myself at 23 and I was five years older than her and her brother. But I fit
into their senior year in high school. No one knew my secret.
Everything about Jessa just fit for me.
And now they are both missing.
“We’ve been to the house and the
hospital. We retrieved the car an hour ago. The back side window was broken out
from the inside. We found her school bag in the back seat. And before you ask,
we already have over half the team in on the search. We’ve been working with
the local guys and they have all of her information. We’re checking the river
banks as well as the water. Anyone making it out will be found, unless…” His
voice trails off in realization that he said too much, but I pick up where he
“Unless they got pulled under and sucked
down the rapids.” I feel my empty stomach clench tight.
His eyes stay locked on me as I pause to
gather my thoughts then, without pretense, my body involuntarily spins to get
dressed and go after Jessa and that’s when I notice them.
Two men standing behind my commanding
“Look, Jack. We know you and Jessa
became close but you need to let the team handle it. Finding her and her
brother is their priority while we’re still here. Our mission still stands
though and your orders are to pack up and let them do their job.” His attempt
at pacifying me is beginning to speak to a part of me that I don’t want to show
as the way he trivializes my feelings for her ignites my fight or flight
We didn’t become close.
She was it.
She was everything.
She was mine and after the arrests were
made, I was coming for her. I was going to come clean about everything. I was
going to tell her I was undercover and older than she thought I was. I was
going to ask her to forgive my secrets and I was going to tell her I loved her.
Now she’s gone.
She’s out there somewhere scared and
The thought hits me like a freight train
and, without warning to myself or the guys in front of me, my body lurches
toward the door, pushing and forcing my way through, but I don’t make it.
Anticipating the move even I didn’t know
I would make, one of the men standing behind my commander steps into my path
and takes me down without effort.
In my haze, all my thoughts are of
Jessa. Not combat. Not tactical maneuvers. And he takes advantage. In the next
breath, I’m on the floor with both of the guys on top of me and my body finally
kicks into fight, but I’ve already been demobilized.
“Jack.” I hear my leader’s voice now and
it’s pained. It isn’t his pain he’s projecting. He’s reflecting my own pain and
my face is suddenly wet as I look down at the floor to see the growing pool of
tears gathering underneath me and I feel my chances of finding my Jessa disappear.
“We need to get you out of here. You’re being sent back to base for eval. You can
get up on your own, or you can wake up there.” He lets his words linger in the
room as the guys begin to shift to take full control of my person. “And Jack. I
I know he isn’t talking about his regret
at needing to restrain me. He’s talking about Jessa and I realize at least a
couple of hours must’ve passed since the car went over the edge. The cold
weather has made the water deathly frigid. She either made it out by breaking
the window and swimming to shore—but no, she would have been found—or she made
it out and got pulled under.
Those are the only two scenarios and as
I review them in my mind, I lose myself.
My body shakes and I can’t control it.
As much as I try to stop the pain from manifesting, I can’t. It’s too powerful.
I let out a pained cry as I feel my arms go limp. I need the release; it’s too
much to take.
Sucking in air, I hear one of the guys
telling the other to hold me still, and then I feel it. A pinch in my arm and
my body numbs as my world goes black.
