Phase One Complete
At the table…
Nichole was on the verge of grabbing her bag and making a run for it, as she did not wish to go back to her foster parents. She had no idea that someone was in the other room interfering on her behalf. Her hand gripped the shoulder strap, and she waited for an opportunity to run…
In the other room…
LaCroix looked intently at Magdalena, satisfied that his suggestion took root. He mentally puzzled himself at the reaction the lady had to him, a complete stranger and predator, in her apartment. He tilted his head, when she asked him if he would like to meet the child. Of course he would, but in due time. “I am afraid that I do not have the time, Magdalena. I must be on my way.” He politely declined her offer. He must time his introduction to the girl just right, if he is to succeed in his plan. Without further instructions, he left the same way he entered.
Once he was outside the building, he removed his cell phone and ordered a locksmith to replace the lock he had destroyed. He had to make sure that the girl and her new guardian stayed safe until the time was right.
