He had to use his head if Mackie was to be saved. Instead of running into the house as his heart wanted to do—oh, Maggie—Joseph ran toward the barn as fast as he could. Which was plenty fast. He couldn’t run like one of his beloved horses, or a werewolf, either, but he had run everywhere when he had been a young man. He stabbed

see Miss Baird and Ms. Newman. You told us this would be a good time to speak with them both.” Anna’s voice rose at the end, as if she weren’t sure they were here at the right time, seeming to allow Ms. Edison a graceful way to reschedule things if she needed to. It was a tactful response to the surprise Ms. Edison had displayed; she’d obviously forgotten they were coming. “Yes. You can talk to Ms. Newman first. Her children are in music for another fifteen minutes. When they get back, Miss
