Here is a sneak peek at what you'll find in chapter 9:
While waiting for Duncan to respond, Ryan thought back to the night, several days ago, when he went back the last time to retrieve the artifact. He waited until around 3am to slip into the house. Quietly he climbed the stairs and entered Ethan’s bedroom. Ethan was asleep on his side. Ryan crept around to the side facing away from Ethan and carefully pressed the injector to his bare shoulder. A quick, quiet hiss announced that the medications had been delivered. He pressed his lips gently to Ethan’s temple then whispered. “I’ll always take care of you.”
“That’s not the issue here. I wouldn’t be giving my wife medications stolen from the future. That’s the issue. You went back into the past and administered medications from our time to a person in the past. You DON’T have a license to practice medicine. You don’t know what effect the medications could have on him. As a matter of fact, I sent Terrence back to check on your lover boy and you may be interested in knowing that he’s in the local ICU. Nobody knows what’s wrong with him or what to do. Think about that.” He got up to leave. As he reached the door, Duncan turned back, the look of pain once again on his face. “What happened to you, Ryan? You were the best, with a spotless record. Now look where you’re at; in jail, facing multiple counts of illegal interactions with people in the past, 4 counts of medication theft, 4 counts of administering medications without a license, and now possible murder if he dies. I wish I knew what was going on in that head of yours.”
“I don’t care what happens to me, as long as Ethan lives.”
“Let’s hope he does.” Duncan closed the door behind him.
