The Celebration Series
I glanced at the assistant who was talking to John Pointer, one of Celebration Township’s police officers, “Is someone trying to notify the family?” she asked him.
“His license said he is from Bryn Mawr, which I think is down by Philadelphia. Thad is trying to contact someone down there to try and make a notification.”
“Officer Pointer,” he nodded as I approached him and asked, “What is the patient’s name?”
John glanced at the small notepad he held in his hand, “Ian Dugan, age thirty-one.”
All eyes landed on me as the gasp left my lips. “Ian Dugan? Is his birthday April twenty-fifth?”
“Yeah? Why? You know him?” John queried back.
I glanced back at the door, “Yeah, I know him.”
“Damn, sorry about that, Linda. How long has it been since you’ve seen him?” Jason asked from beside me.
Memories of my sophomore year of high school flashed to the front of my mind like a strobe light. Ian’s light green eyes and boyish smile as he grinned down at me when I said I’d go to his junior prom with him filled my mind.
I’d been enthralled with his eyes, with the smile that could light up a room along with the deep voice that commanded attention, even at that young age.
“I haven’t seen him since I was sixteen, no one around here has.”
