A series of frantic knocks on our door, woke us the next morning. Greg groaned and looked at his watch. “Four am. If that’s Levi, I’m going to shoot him. He wanted me to run with him this morning, but I’d told him no.”
He threw a t-shirt over his boxers and opened the door a crack. Brenda pushed the door inward and almost fell as it swung open. Greg grabbed her arm and pulled her upright. “Are you okay?”
Her eyes wild, she shook her head. “You’ve got to come down. I’ve called 911 but you have to come down, now.”
Fear creeped over the back of my neck. I’d never seen Brenda this upset. Had it been vandals? Or something worse?
“What happened, Brenda?” Greg had on his police voice now. Calm, but demanding. “Take a breath, and tell me.”
She sank onto the edge of the bed. “In the pool. There’s a body in the pool.”
