It was only 5:00 or 5:30 in the morning when a terrified thirteen year old woke from his bed in a horrific panic. He sat up screaming at the top of his lungs. His sister Abby came storming through his bedroom door jumping into his bed clutching onto him and holding him tight. She gently stroked his hair speaking loudly into his ear, “stop Cody, please stop. What is wrong baby brother, what's wrong? Are you hurt? Was it a bad dream?”

As he sat there covered in sweat and urine he yelled as loud as he could while hysterically crying, “THEIR DEAD! THEIR BOTH DEAD!”

Who's dead Cody, who died? You just had a nightmare little brother.”

Just then their mother, father, and little sister came bursting through the door inquiring what was the matter. Abby looked up at all three of them still clutching onto her baby brother. He was showing no signs of letting up or calming down, as she shook her head at her parents signaling them she had no idea what was going on. Their father asked, “Cody, what is the matter son?” immediately after his mom added, “we can't help you if we don't know whats wrong Honey”!

After a few seconds their son looked up at them and said in a low whispering voice shaking with emotion, “Their both dead!'

The adults and the both girls all had puzzled looks on their faces wondering what was going on while at the same time reassuring their vulnerable, shaken sibling that no one was hurt and that everything was fine. Just then the phone rang as all four of their heads turned simultaneously to Codys nightstand, alarmed at a call coming so early in the morning. Meanwhile Cody didn't move a muscle. He just sat clinched to his loving, caring sister and shouted, “Go ahead and answer it! Get it over with!”

The father looked around in a very surreal way and cautiously walked over to the nightstand where he picked up the phone and answered, “Sommers residence, may I help you?”

He listened attentively for a minute or so while the rest of the room anxiously stared at him wondering what was happening. Then he replied back into the receiver, “Yes Niklas, I understand. I'll get the kids dressed and we'll be in Reno withing an hour. Is there anything you need or we can bring down with us? Uh huh, uh huh, I understand. We'll stop on the way and pick them up. Yes, Cheyenne too. No, not a problem at all Niklas. And Niklas, I'm very, very sorry. Just hang in there and we'll be down shortly.”

Marsha: “What is it Jordan, what's happened?”

There's been an accident Marsha. Abby, get Princess dressed and get Cody cleaned up and changed into some dry clothes. Come on out in the hall with me hun, I'll explain.”

Cody: “Their all dead, that's what happened!” And with that Cody passed out in his sisters arms.

Marsha: “Abagail, get your brother into the shower and cool him off. Then get him dressed like your father told you to.”

Abby: “Is anyone going to tell me what's going on?”

Jordan: “Trisha, go to your room and get dressed now. And Abby, Just do as we ask.”

I need to know dad.”

Jordan watched as Trisha walked out of the room looking as if she was very scarred. Then said to his daughter Abby, “Nika and Sequoia have been involved in an accident. We need to get down to Childrens Hospital in Reno immediately. And we'll be picking up Tasha, Sash, and Cheyenne (Sequoia's little sister) on the way.”

Are they gonna be ok dad?”

We'll talk about that later Abagail, just do what your mother told you for now.”

No, are they ok? Anwser me!”

He walked over to his oldest daughter and put his hand on her shoulder and said while looking her in the eyes, “No, I don't think so, not this time hon. Lets just think good thoughts and we'll know more when we get there.”

Oh God dad, Tasha, Cheyenne, and Sasha are probably going crazy right now!”

That's why we need to stay calm and get over to their house as soon a possible. Their home alone and Niklas elected not to phone them. They don't know what happened yet. We need to get over there as fast as we can and get them down to Reno. If the worst has happened, and I fear it has, then they need to be there to say goodbye to their brothers.”

Is it that bad dad?”

Yah Abby, it's that bad. Do you need me to carry Cody into the shower for you?”

As she began to cry: “No, he's not that big yet, I can manage.”

Ok, then let's get our game faces on. Niklas and Nadia's family need us now more than ever.”

So they don't know whats happened dad?”

You mean Tasha, Cheyenne, and Sash?”


No, not yet. Niklas asked that we just pick them up and say as little as possible until we get them to Reno. They were asleep when they left. They just woke Maria, the house keeper to watch over things and left right away as Golden Fawn instructed them to do. She's with them as well.”

And what about Sequoia dad?”

Her father simply shook his head and quietly said, “No. I'm sorry Abby.”

Abby took Cody into the bathroom, stripping off his clothes and getting him into the shower, while wiping the tears from her face. She was actually recalling a conversation she had recently with Tasha about Sequoia, and how they would both love to “teach him the ropes” in a couple years. Now she felt guilt and remorse for her lustful thoughts for the “beyond beautiful” tween boy. Meanwhile a block or so away, another sister had her hands full and was in a panic of her own.

SASHA, What is it? Your scaring the shit outta me, are you awake? Whats wrong Sash, what is it?”

At that moment, the house keeper (a late twenties Latino woman a little on the pudgy side) ran into the room and asked, “What is it, what's wrong?”

I don't know Maria, he woke me up screaming like he's in pain. His eyes are open, but it's like there's nobody home. Why isn't Nika in here? Maria, get my mom and dad quick!”

There not here Natasha.”

What do you mean there not here? Where the fuck are they?”

They woke me up early this morning and said there was an emergency and left with Sequoia's and Cheyenne's mother.”

Left where? Where would they be going this early in the morning?”

I don't know dear. They said it was an emergency.”

Then find Nika. See if he fell asleep on the couch downstairs. Tell him I need him up here now. He's the only one that can calm Sasha down when he's like this.”

I'm sorry Tasha, but Nika's the reason they left.”

WHAT? Then get me some wet towels Maria, he's vomiting all over the place! Calm down Sasha, calm down baby brother. Everything's going to be ok. You just had a bad dream, and maybe a touch of the flu.”

Nooo, no Tash, their dead Tash. I know their dead!”

Shuuush little brother, shuuush, I'm here. Your big sis is here Sasha.”

Just then Maria came back with her arms full of towels both wet and dry. “Tasha, pull the sheets back and strip them off the bed.”

Ok, here we go. His pj's are wet too Maria. They smell like piss, I'm gonna strip them off.”

Alright Tasha. When you get them off, I'll strip the bottom sheets and mattress pad off, and put some new ones on.”

Never mind that, just clean as much of the vomit off his chest and face as you can. I'll carry him into Nika's room and we'll lay him down in there.”

Ok, hang on, I'll wipe his crotch off with a wet towel to get rid of the urine so we can get some new pj's on him.”

Thanks Maria, I don't know what the fuck is going on this morning, but when were done and we get him calmed down, I'll call mom and dad.”

They both tended to Sash as he went on rambling and crying that “their dead and he wants to go with them”, and all sorts of other panicked speech that Tash thought was a dream or fever related.

They finished cleaning him up real good, and laid him down to sleep in Nika's bed. Then Tasha took her cell phone from her pocket as Maria stroked Sasha's forehead with a cool wet facecloth. Then just as Tasha began to dial, the land line in Nika and Sasha's room rang. She walked over to the phone and picked it up, “Hello.”

She had a surprised look on her face and said, “Yes, this is Tash.”

Tash, this is Marsha.”

Yes Marsha, it's kind of early. No one is here except me and Sasha, and he's sick.”

I know dear. Listen, Jordan and I are on our way over. We'll talk more when we get there.”

What is going on this morning Marsha?”

It's better we talk in person dear. But please get dressed if your still in your nightgown, and see that Sasha is awake and dressed too.”

He's sick as a dog Marsha.”

Just like Cody”, she said under her breath.”

What, what was that last part, I missed it.”

Nothing dear, just get him dressed as well. And you'll need to get Cheyenne from the guest house as well. We're leaving as soon as we get there.”

Alright, I'll see you when you get here.”

Tash threw the phone on the table and looked over at Maria while shaking her head.”

What is it Tasha?”

Change of plans Maria. I'm going down to my room to get changed. The Sommers are on the way over and were going on a trip.”

Where to?”

I don't know, but I assume to meet my parents.”

Would you like me to get Sasha dressed?”

I guess that would be a good idea.” Then a concerned look crossed her face, “No, on second thought, just find the top that matches those pj bottoms and put those on and some warm socks. Then pack him a overnight bag with clothes, his tennies, and some undies. When you're done with that go out to the guest house and wake up Cheyenne and get her dressed as well.”

What about his toothbrush and toothpaste?”

Yes, good idea. As much as he threw-up, he'll surely want to brush his teeth later. And Maria?”

Yes Natasha?”

Thank you so much for your help.”

You're very welcome dear.”

Tasha went to her bedroom and washed up as fast as she could before pulling on some jeans and boots. Then a shirt and sweatshirt just as there was a knock on the front door. The doorbell chimed simultaneously. Maria left Sasha unattended momentarily to let Mr. and Mrs. Sommers into the house while Abby watched her younger brother and sister outside in the big white SUV. Tasha had heard the doorbell and ran back upstairs (from her second floor bedroom) to Nika's room where Sasha was laying on his side in a fetal position sucking on his thumb. She threw off the sheet and picked him up. Then she grabbed his overnight bag before carrying him downstairs. She met Codys folks in the living room as she gently laid Sasha on the couch. Maria then walked through the door as well with Cheyenne holding her hand. Then she looked at the two of them and nervously asked, Ok, what the hell is going on?”

The two parents paused and looked at each other, as Maria looked on with her hands gently squeezing Cheyenne's shoulders as the frightened young girl was standing in front of her. Maria was curious and concerned herself as to why she was woken so early to watch over the kids. Marsha looked at Jordan and said, “Hun, why don't you carry Sasha out to the car, and I'll talk to Tasha. You go with him too Cheyenne sweetie.”

Jordan picked Sasha and his overnight bag up and walked out of the living room towards the entryway and out to the car with Cheyenne tagging along right behind him. Just then Marsha turned around and spoke, “Sit down Tasha.”

I don't need to sit down. Just tell me what's going on.”

Ok Tasha, but remember we don't have all the information and things can change fast.”

OK, so what is it? If anything has happened to Nikita then I have to know. Tell me!”

There's been a terrible accident sweetheart.”


Down on the edge of town by the dam and river.”

You mean on highway 89 by the bridge?”

Yes Tash, Im sorry. This isn't easy.”

How bad?” As she sat backwards real hard into the couch.

I'm not sure of the details. Only that it was Nika and Sequoia.”

I asked how bad Marsha!”

I'm so sorry sweetheart, but one of them is dead. And the other is in a coma with a skull fracture. He's undergoing emergency surgery right now.”

Which one is it. Who's dead Marsha?”

Why don't we let your parents talk to you when we get down there.”

With a very stern voice, “I Said Who Is It Marsha?”

I'm not sure Tash. Your father spoke to Jordan and he wasn't clear about much of what happened.”

Oh God how I'm going to miss either of them. Whomever it was, I just pray he felt no pain.”

Marsha and Tash made their way out to the SUV as Tash got in and was immediately grabbed and hugged by her best friend....Abby. They both began to cry as Cody slept and Sasha laid on the seat curled up with his eyes open, but nobody home. He still had his thumb in his mouth sucking away on it just like the last time he did that, when he was three years old. They pulled out of the driveway and onto the highway. Then they turned off on a dirt road bypassing the road block a few miles down by the dam at the scene of the accident. Then headed north as they snaked their way up Mount Rose highway to the top and then started down the other side towards Reno. Meanwhile, we pick things up at Childrens Hospital in Reno Nevada, where all sorts of hell was breaking loose.

Thank God you're here Dr. Hart. We sure can use your help here this morning. We've been swamped. Since about 2:00am.”

You guys better be swamped Semoni. You don't call in the Hospitals Chief of Staff this early in the morning on his day off unless it's an emergency. Now tell me why it looks like a war zone in here, and what the hells going on?”

Yes sir, we took a big hit about midnight when a rock slide hit a group of sleeping Boy Scouts who were camping up near Kirkwood. Then an hour or two later, a couple of near drowning victims, female ages seven and eight were brought in from the Truckee River. We were already at capacity at that point, but then we had several children brought in from the apartment fire over in Sparks. One was treated and now is up in Intensive care, and the other is still in the ER. Now we have a couple kids involved in that semi-truck accident up in Clear Lake.”

I heard about that on the radio on the way in. It was over on 89 not far from where the girls fell in the river and almost drowned. They had the highway closed trying to sort it all out. “

That would be the one sir.”

And what's their status Dr. Semoni?”

One was pronounced dead at the scene and the other just went into the ER, but it doesn't look good. The Medevac had just brought him in before you got here.”

What's his age and status.”

It appears he's between eleven and thirteen, and he has a fractured skull. He's been comatose since before he arrived. Here's his chart”

Where's he at and who's in there with him?”

He's in ER #3 as 1 and 2 have Boy Scouts that are being stabilized right now, and #4 has one of the fire victims. Dr. Ruck and Dr. Sloan are in with him in #3.”

The Head Nurse (Nurse Lincoln): Dr. Hart, Dr. Semoni, they just called in. Another Medevac Chopper is landing on the roof as we speak.”

Dr. Semoni: Holy Shit, what now?”

Nurse: It's the boy from the orphanage who was on the backpacking trip up in the Desolation Wilderness.”

Dr. Semoni: You mean the snakebite kid?”

Nurse: “Yes, he was bit on the neck by a Western Diamondback (Rattle Snake). But its taken 8 hours to carry him out because we couldn't get a chopper in there.”

Dr. Hart: Tell me we did think ahead to have the anti venom on hand?”

Nurse: Yes sir, it was airlifted to the pick-up spot . They started the anti venom in the Medevac transport at the base camp where they picked him up.”

Dr. Hart: “Is he responding?”

Nurse: I don't know sir, the Dr. from Southern General up in Clear Lake is flying in on the chopper with him. They should be down in the elevator any minute.”

Dr. Hart: Ok, I'm issuing a directive. Notify Reno General and Sparks County Hospitals that we are at capacity and for any other emergencies to be diverted to them. We can't handle any thing else right now.”

Dr. Semoni and the nurse: “Yes sir.”

And Dr. Semoni?”

Yes sir?”

This kid with the fractured skull, whats his outlook?”

Not very good sir. He's lost a lot of blood and there's a lot of swelling.”

His chart here says Nikita Nicoli Von Heflin?”

Yes sir, does that mean anything to you?”

Yes, it may. I believe I know this kid. He's my architect Niklas Von Heflins son. Page Dr. Hudson, the Chief Neurosurgeon at Reno General for me and get him on the line. I want him over here pronto.”

Yes sir, will do.”

Just then the elevator doors flew open and a gurney with a Dr. and a team of nurses came rushing out and towards the last ER. The Dr. holding the IV said “Lets clear a path people. We have a very sick kid here.”

Dr. Hart: Is this the snake bite?”

Dr. Villa (from South Clear Lake General): “Yes it is, who's taking him and where's he going?”

I am, Dr. Hart, chief of staff. Wheel him into #5.”

Hello Dr. I'm Dr. Villa from Southern General up in Clear Lake. I came down on the Medevac with him.”

How's he responding to the anti venom?”

Not to well I'm afraid, I believe it may have just been too long.”

He looks to be seven or eight.”

Eight I think. He's from the Indian Orphanage up in South Lake.”

SHIT, flatline, he's crashing, get him into ER 5 and set up a crash cart for me!”

Dr Semoni: I have Dr. Hudson, Chief or Neurosurgery at Reno General for you Dr. Hart.”

Not Now Semoni, We Got The Game On! This kid's crashing! Just fax him the Von Heflin kids chart and tell him Ronald said to get over here right away. He owes me a few and it's payback time.”

Yes sir, I'll see to it we chopper him in here in 10 minutes.”

And tell Dr. Ruck and Dr. Sloan that the Calvary is on the way! I'll be tending to our little snake bite victim. And I mean it when I say were at capacity. So make sure you divert all other emergencies to Sparks and Reno General.”

Yes sir.”

Nurse to Dr. Semoni: Last time it was this busy in here was the fire we had in Clear Lake a couple years ago.”

Yes, or maybe the avalanche at the ski resort?”

With the turn of events at the hospital, everyone scrambled around like ants or worker bee's with clear objectives in their mind. Meanwhile an SUV with three parents pulled up to the emergency room and jumped out and ran inside leaving the vehicle parked right where it was with the doors wide open. A security guard yelled out, “Hey buddy, you can't leave this parked there!”

Mr. Von Heflin fired back, “my boy just came in here in a coma and I have to get to him.”

The guard yelled “it's a tow away zone” to no avail as the three parents were already inside the hospital doors. Then the guard got on his walkie-talkie and said “we have another one” in an east coast accent, and “get me the tow company.”

Just then another younger guard Walked by him and said “Don't be such a fuckin prick all the time,” as he hooped in the drives seat, started up the SUV and parked it in the employees parking lot for the worried parents.

The parents ran up to the information desk and asked about Nikita. The clerk at the desk asked their relation and they explained they were his parents. She told them he was in the ER and that she knew nothing yet on his current condition. And that they can sit in the waiting room, because it was going to be a while before they knew anything. The parents agreed as Mr. V said “Golden Fawn (who was still sobbing), when Jordan and Marsha get here, we can arrange to take you back to the house.”

Thank you Niklas, but I'd rather stay here with you and the family. It's important for me to know what becomes of Nika. I love him and he did try to save my son, so I owe him that.”

He gave her a long, heartfelt hug as he was tearing up at her sentimentality as his wife Nadia was as well.

Long about that time the desk clerk answered a phone as Dr. Semoni was walking by. She quickly snapped her fingers at him as she was speaking, catching his attention. He stopped in his tracks as she was hanging up the phone.

What is it Maggie?”

It's Medevac 3, they just dropped a Neurosurgeon named Hudson up on the roof for the Von Heflin kid.”

Just then Mr. and Mrs. V looked up as a bolt of electricity shot through them after hearing their sons name.

Dr. Semoni: That's great Maggie, Dr. Hart called him in from Reno General, he's their Chief Neurosurgeon. Get him scrubbed up and into ER# 3 as soon as he gets down here.”

Yes sir.”

Mr. V: Dr., Dr., please wait a moment.”

Yes, what is it?”

I'm Niklas Von Heflin (Mr. V), and this is my wife Nadia. I just heard you say something about a Dr. Hart called in another Dr. for the Von Heflin Kid? That's our son Nikita.”

Oh, yes. I'm Dr. Semoni. He was just choppered in on a Medevac.”

Is that Dr. Ronald Hart you we're speaking of?”

Yes, it is. I guess he knows you after all.”

He mentioned me?”

When he saw the name on your sons chart, he thought that he recognized the boys name and thought he knew his father.”

Yes, I'm his Architect.”

That's what he mentioned, he was pretty sure it was the same guy. Being from Clear Lake and all.”

So he called in a special Doctor?”

Yes, one of his friends is Chief Neurosurgeon at Reno General.”

Is he good Dr. Semoni?”

He the best on the West Coast. If your son comes through this Mr. Von Heflin, then he's in the best hands with Dr. Hudson.”

Oh that's a relief, is Dr. Hart about, I'd like to speak to him.”

Not just now. He's in the Emergency Room with a patient.”

When he gets out would you tell him me and Nadia are here and would like to see him.”

Of course.”

And could you update us on our son Dr.?”

All I know is that he lost a lot of blood and was comatose upon arrival. They're still trying to stabilize him in the ER. I'll make sure you're updated when we know anything.”

Just then the elevator sprang open and Dr. Hudson walked out. Dr. Sumoni said, “Dr. Hudson, the boy is in ER# 3 and they're waiting on you. Dr. Ruck and Sloan are in there trying to stabilize him.”

Thank you Dr., and tell Dr. Hart I've arrived.”

He's in ER# 5 stabilizing a boy with a snake bite.”

Alright then, I'll stick my head in before I get started.”

Just them Mr. Von Heflin yelled out to Dr. Hudson, “That's our son Nikita in there Dr. Hudson! Please do your best to save Nikita!”

The Doctor looked in their direction, nodded his head, and was off to the ER.

After scrubbing up, Dr. Hudson made his way to the ER's and did stick his head into #5 to see Dr. Hart. Dr. Hart did explain that the Van Heflin's were of special interest to him and that they were indeed friends. Dr. Hudson assured him he would do whatever he could, and then made his way into ER# 3.

What do we have Doctors?”

Dr. Ruck: “Ahh, Dr. Hudson, nice to see you again. Here's the ex ray and cat scan. We've given him several pints of blood, but it appears we may be losing him.”

Yes, looks like the impact has caused excessive swelling. I'm going to have to operate.”

Dr. Sloan: “Yes, there isn't much of anything in the way of internal hemorrhaging yet, it's just the pressure.”

Get him up to the OR and prepped for surgery. I'm going to inform his parents.”

Just as Dr. Hudson was leaving the ER, Dr. Hart was exiting ER# 5. Dr Hart approached Dr. Hudson and said “Geoffrey, I'm glad you came.”

Hello Ronald, good to see you too, but I'm afraid it's looking like it may be a wasted trip. I'm just on my way to speak to the parents of the Von Heflin boy. Would you like to accompany me?”

Yes, what's the status.”

I'm afraid it doesn't look good. I'll need to operate to relieve the pressure.”

I mean, is there going to be any permanent damage?”

If he even survives the surgery, which is doubtful, I'm afraid so Ron.”

What about your little boy with the snake bite?”

Well, Rattle Snake venom is a hemotoxin. There was nothing we could do, it took too long to get the anti venom into him. Hemotoxic venom attacks the heart, and it's pretty much shot. We were able to resuscitate him and get his heartbeat and pulse back, but I'm afraid he's brain dead and on life support.”

On a machine, sad day all around. What are his parents going to do then?”

He a ward of the state. He's from the Native American Orphanage up in South Clear Lake. Were waiting for his case worker from Social Services to show up. She'll need to get a court order from the judge to turn the machine off so the poor boy can rest in peace.”

The two Doctors made their way out to the waiting room as Nadia slapped her husband on the arm and they both sprang up out of their seats. Mr. Von Heflin spoke, “How is he Doctor?”

Dr. Hudson: He's alive, but we'll need to operate. His brain has swollen to the point the skull cannot contain it. If we don't cut into his skull to relieve the pressure he'll surely die.”

Oh MY God Niklas!”

He grabbed his wife as she buried her face into his chest. He rubbed her back and said, “He's still alive dear, so we should be grateful for that. Do what you need to do. And thank you soo much Ron for calling Dr. Hudson in.”

Your very welcome Niklas. But there's something you need to know.”

What is it Ron?”

If Nikita does survive this, then I'm afraid there's very little chance he'll lead a normal life.”

Niklas: “What are his chances of survival Dr. Hudson?”

If I were to be honest with you Mr. Von Heflin, I'd say he has between a 20 to 30% chance of survival.”

That's all?”

I'm afraid so.”

Well, it's better than nothing.” As his wife began to break down in his arms before Golden Fawn pulled her away into a hug and they sat down.

And what about his chances of leading a normal life if he does make it?”

I would honestly have to say that there's zero chance of that. We just don't know how bad yet.”

Why, what happened.”

The blow to his skull caused the brain to swell Niklas. That combined with the blood loss and lack of oxygen to the brain is going to cause some permanent damage.”

Dr. Hudson: “I can't stay any longer. I need to get to the OR.”

Yes of course Dr. Just Do whatever you can do and save our son.”

Just then as Dr. Hudson walked into the elevator and up to the operating room, Dr. Semoni walked up to Dr. Hart and Niklas.

Dr. Hart: What In the name of Heaven is it now Anthony?”

Maybe we can talk over here gentlemen.”

Dr. Semoni motioned them both over away from the ladies a few feet. Is that the mother of the Native American boy that was killed up in Clear Lake?”

Niklas: “Yes, yes it is. Her name is Golden Fawn and she's is Sequoia's mother.”

That's what I thought. She asked the Head Nurse, Nurse Lincoln earlier where they took her son. That she would like to see his remains to hold his hands and say and kiss him goodbye.”

Dr. Hart: Ok then. What's the problem?”

Maybe we should speak in person Dr. Hart?”

Just spit it out man. I've known Niklas for over ten years!”

Well, you see....they, umm.”

What is it Anthony? Just say what you came to say!”

The bodies gone sir!”

Shit fire, they lost the boy's body?”

No sir, not exactly.”

What do you mean not exactly. Did or didn't they lose the body?”

I spoke personally to the driver. And there was no body when he arrived back sir.”

Then he lost the body Dr. Semoni!”

Golden Fawn had overheard part of the conversation and walked up to the three men and inquired of them regarding her son.

Dr. Hudson told Dr. Semoni, “well, tell her!”

Yes sir.”

He then looked at Golden Fawn quite nervously, “Mam, the driver made a direct trip back with no stops and the van was locked. But when he opened the door when he arrived back, the stretcher and gurney were there. And so was the body bag, but it was empty. No traces of blood or anything, except your boys clothes, and the fillings from his teeth. Your sons body, it's gone mam.

Dr. Hart, “Christ, what's next!”

Golden Fawn: “He had a new leather necklace around his neck Dr. It had a rattle from a rattle snake attached to it, was it there as well?”

No mam, nothing like that. But I can talk to the driver again if you would like?”

Golden Fawn shook her head signaling not to bother and went back and sat down.

Dr Hart: Well Anthony, call the Sheriff and report a missing body.”

Yes sir.”

Dr. Hart walked up to Golden Fawn and looked down upon her and said, “Mam, I apologize for this and that your sons remains are missing. We will find them for you.”

Golden Fawn replied without looking up at the Dr., “No you won't.”

Then Niklas walked up and added in, “Don't think negatively Golden Fawn. He won't be missing for long.”

With that Golden Fawn looked up with a wide bright smile on her face and said, “Sequoia isn't missing. And I don't believe you will ever find his body. But you're welcome to search.”

Don't be ridiculous, they'll find him.”

Golden Fawn: “I doubt they will ever find him Niklas, and truth be told.....he isn't lost. But we shall see Sequoia again, and of that I am sure!!!”
