Escaping the past opens a door to the future.
After years of abuse and struggle, Lauret made a decision to change her life. At 40 years old, she left her old life behind and started fresh. By leaving all of the past and hurt, she gained everything, including the love of her life, the gorgeously handsome Dominic Tyreaux.
Lauret’s heart was in motion on the way home. She really liked Dominic, enjoyed his company as well as his conversation. She was not looking for a man, but if she were, it would be someone just like the handsome newspaper mogul.
As Lauret pulled up to her house, she noticed a covered basket on her porch. Her mind went into overdrive. Now what is that? I wasn’t expecting any type of delivery today. She cautiously got out of her car and climbed her front porch steps. Carefully, Lauret uncovered the basket only to be overwhelmed by the smell of death. The basket contained three small decomposing animals.
There was a note attached to the top, I know you like soft fuzzy things, sweet cheeks, here’s something for you to cuddle.
Lauret was disgusted, she began to cry. She knew beyond the shadow of a doubt that David found her. She left the basket, went into the house and called the police. David was the only person that ever called her sweet cheeks.
Lauret was even more disturbed when she went to place her key in the lock and the door opened. She knew she had locked the house before she left. She walked in cautiously and looked to see if something, anything had been disturbed. Everything was in order, but Lauret was uncomfortable. Somebody had been in her house and the presence could still be felt. She immediately dialed 911.
