1. Decision on Flat Rock Trail by Mack Ireland
Decision on Flat Rock Trail
Using the conference room of the new town hall,the
Seven plus, Eileen Larabee,Todd Withrow and
Mary Travis tried to talk unemotionally about
Chris Larabee found he could not add anything
to the conversation and remained silent and withdrawn.
Todd Withrow, cousin and ex husband of Ella Gaines
had come to pled for a tranfer of Ella, as a prisioner
to Vista City.
Most of the seven were astounded at the nerve. They felt
Ella was getting better than she rightfully deserved.
But Todd felt his cousin mental health had slipped to
the place wherein a prison was not the place for her. She
still ranted on about having a Canadian husband and a child.
None of this could be proven.
Josiah spoke,"You do realize that Vista City will not
put up with with whims and temper tantrums?"
Vin said,"I think she should stay right where she is."
"I find myself in agreement with Mr. Tanner,"Ezra said.
Buck and JD both nodded their heads in agreement.
Mary Travis spoke"I think a consultation with the nuns
in Vista City is in order."
Everyone agreed. The meeting broke up with a deision
for Josiah to speak to the nuns when she visited his sister
in a few days.
People went in different directions. Once home Chris and
Eileen followed Flat Rock Trail and perched on the huge
boulder behind their house.
Chris lit a cigar and leaned against the rock."So, what do
you think,"he questioned his sister? She hadn't said
much during the meeting and she blocked him from reading
"I am thinking that Vista City would be good for Ella,"
Chris stared in surprise."She's a flight risk how will the
nuns handle that?"
Eileen smiled sweetly,"they won't have to, she will have
no desire to go beyond the boundaries of the convent."
"More work for you,"Chris said.
Eileen and Chris agree to have Ella moved.
