Charlotte was beyond paranoid. She had every right to be after learning her husband had increased her life insurance value on her and then hired someone to kill her. She had told the police but they didn't believe her. It was no wonder. Her husband was a cop too. Cops didn't turn on cops. That was the creed they were rumored to say.
But what about the wives? The spouses? Why did they have to feel so helpless.
No, what Charlotte needed was protection and that's what she was doing right now. Waiting for protection in the next town over. How she had gotten in touch with this guy was a miracle in her eyes. It seemed like there were eyes all over in her town.
'He' had said he'd meet her at 3pm. It was 3:23pm. He was late. She was going to give him a few more minutes and then leave. It was too dangerous to stay in one place for too long. If this didn't pan out, she would need to go on the run by herself because she knew her husband was looking for her.
