The sound of cars coming up the driveway registered at the back of Pierce's brain, and he waffled between irritation and gratitude. Irritation because he wanted to sort out Ruby's story, and gratitude because he figured this was going to be the kind of emotional bloodbath he tried to avoid at all costs.
"Were you expecting someone?" Pierce asked.
Glancing at the grandfather clock standing in the hallway, Tallie pushed up from the couch with a frown. "It's too early--"
But a disturbance at the door interrupted her as a young woman with streaming red-gold hair pushed inside and hustled straight toward Tallie. "We need the safe room. Halo is exploding."
As Pierce's normally agile brain struggled to make sense of who all these people were and what was going on, Tallie transformed from stunned woman who had fainted into his arms to warrior woman in charge of a town of evacuees.
"Alright, let's get everyone in the basement. Marly, help me get the weapons passed out in case he comes here."
Pierce followed Tallie and the young woman called Marly--his daughter, he realized.
She was beautiful. Just a few inches over five feet. However, Marly didn't seem small, perhaps because she so expertly loaded the small arsenal of weapons from a gun safe and handed them off to people lined up and waiting, as if they had done this many times before.
Mostly women and a few teenagers, Pierce noted. Where were the men? What had he stumbled into?
