Episode 9: The Chase “Richard, I think we have a problem,” Delilah said. “Is that Frank’s car following us?”   (Did you miss Episode 8?) Richard twisted to look out of the rearview mirror. “Shit,” he said. Delilah put her foot down on the accelerator. She pressed down hard. “Hold on,” she said. “This is going to be a wild ride.” They watched the speedometer go from 50 to 70 to 90. “Damn girl, I didn’t peg you for a reckless driver,” Richard said. “This isn’t reckless,” Delilah replied. “I’m preventing us from being tied to chairs and ransomed for...

Delilah let out her breath and opened the bedroom door. Greg ran to his mom and wrapped his arms around her long leg. (Did you miss Episode 4?)  “Do I know you?” Cassandra asked, looking quizzically at Mari. She glanced at the large kitchen knife in Mari’s hand.   “Third grade. Ms. Timms’ class.
