Three damaged souls converge as violence wracks the small community of Centurion, WY. The town protects its own so when Kit Golden Eagle shows up, it’s easy to place blame on the stranger. It looks open and shut, but for Josiah and Marcus the facts simply don’t add up.Something’s rotten in Centurion, something that smacks of a hate crime…
Josh Foxglove needed a favor from Marcus Colton. And a little liquid courage. When Marcus brings him into his office for a drink, Josh isn’t sure what to make of the invite…
Josh wasn’t sure about the old wood steps. The risers weren’t up to code and the handrail left a lot to be desired. He asked, “You okay, buddy? I mean…”
The look that crossed Marcus’ face was a wash of embarrassment fueled by concern. “Oh man, I’m sorry. I-I didn’t think…” He pointed to Josh’s left thigh, the one with enough hardware and fake parts to qualify him as a bionic man.
Josh said, “It’s okay. I can do stairs. If I take it easy.” Real easy, one step at a time, thinking on it before you tried kind of easy. Why he was even contemplating following Colton up the damn steps was another issue entirely.
The stairway did a dog leg. They paused at the landing and angled themselves for the final push. Marcus grunted and wavered unsteadily. Behind him Josh set his hands on the man’s hips and guided him in the right direction. It didn’t help the stairwell was dark as pitch with only a lone twenty-five watt nightlight in the overhead casting weak lumens on the scarred wood door.
Marcus asked, “Why you doing this?”
Grinning, Josh replied, “Friends don’t let friends climb drunk.”
“You said we weren’t friends.”
“I lied.” He nudged Marcus forward, guiding him the rest of the way.
