Garnet had not persuaded Damon to stay away from the house where the kidnapping took place.  It had been vacant for over five years.  The pain on Damon’s face was agony.

Garnet read an article on the library’s computer stating the owners had sold the house.  They were so distraught over the kidnapping, they could not continue living in their house which held such intense memories of that tragic night.

They had only kept a framed photo after the house was sold.  It was an elegant picture of a large bird flying in front of lush, green mountains.  The photo was taken from the deck of a cruise ship the family was on. It was their last vacation together, and the photo was a reminder of all the extraordinary experiences the family had.
