TAKE TWO
A Picture Perfect Novel
by
Traci Hayden
Official genre of book: Contemporary Romance
Beth Huntley, photographer and devoted bachelorette, doesn’t believe in true love. Too much hurt and disappointment has left her hiding behind the camera. All she can see is a black and white world through the lens.
William Lorde, widower and father, was once an open and carefree man. The loss of his wife has left him wrapped up in the needs of his little girl. He can no longer see the colors of the world as he struggles each and every day.What happens when these two similarly different people meet and help each other to step out of the world they’ve created for themselves? Will they find a love that helps them heal from the past, enjoy their present and create a beautiful future?

Beth was tucked in to my side, my arm draped over her shoulders, and I rubbed her arm supportively. My other hand was covering one of her hands, keeping it from digging at her wrist.
Speechless, I listened for a second time to Beth’s tale about a package she had been hiding. Her father and Jackie seemed to be just as shocked as I’d been. I wasn’t sure how this conversation between her and Ryan was going to play out.
“All right, explain this again.” Ryan asked sharply. “And they better be short sentences. Do you understand me?”
“Yes.” Beth’s voice was shaky and understandably so. “Sunday I found an envelope on the steps of the house.”
“And you brought it in the house.” Ryan’s voice went up an octave. “I’ve got that part. What I want clarification on, child, is… what was in it.”
Beth pushed her body tighter into mine. I continued to support her as much as possible.
“I’m waiting.”
This attitude Ryan was taking reminded me of a cop rather than a father. I wasn’t fond of it and was about to say so when Beth accidentally cut me off.
“Dad, stop.” She fell out of my arms faster than I thought physically possible. “I know I screwed up. But right now I need my father not a dictator.”
Ryan’s face blanched as his eyes bulged. He took a deep breath as he flexed his fists. After a momentary stare down with his daughter, his body sagged. “Beth, I’m sorry, but you’ve put so many people in danger here.”
“You don’t think I know that. I messed up, okay? But I can’t change the mistake. I can only try to correct it.” She admitted as she walked over and fell into him.
I could see a future me as he wrapped her up protectively in his arms. “Beth, explain the pictures again.”
“There were three. One was me and Jude. One had William, Angel and I at the park. And the other…” She paused. She had been terrified of the meaning of the last one when she told me the story. “I was by myself.”
“Where is the envelope now?” Ryan asked quietly. It was obvious he had the same realization that Beth and I had.
“In my room at home,” Beth answered.
Ryan reached for his phone, tapped on the screen before putting it to his ear. “Answer the phone, boy,” Ryan said, muttering to himself. “Wyatt? Call me when you get this message.”
“Dad, please,” Beth begged. “Don’t drag Wyatt into this.”
I could see her body tense and I worried that she was in the starting stages of another attack. I wanted to do something, say something that could give Beth a few moments to compose herself.
“Ryan, dear, can we just drop this subject for now? Nothing can be done till Wyatt calls, and I’m sure Beth’s been dealing with all of this for long enough.” Jackie was quick to assess the situation too.
“Thank you, Jackie, but I think William and I still have some talking to do,” Beth objected.
She reached out her hand, silently asking me to come with her. I followed her out to the backyard. Beth stopped and turned, throwing her body against mine. She squeezed her arms tightly around my waist. “I’m so sorry.”
I cocooned her within my arms. “Sorry for what?”
“For pulling you and Angel into this.” Beth’s voice was muffled against my chest. “I’ll understand if you want to walk away now. It’ll be safer for you if you did.”
“What, wait… what?” I didn’t even know where to start with this conversation. I pushed Beth away from me so I could look down into her eyes. “Are you serious? Why the hell would I walk away now, after I’ve fought for so long to get you to open up and trust me?”
“I just thought…” Beth was lost and confused.
She’d never dealt with anything like this before. Of course, I’d never dealt with anything like this either, unless you considered the Crystal situation.
“I love you, Beth. I won’t walk away when you need me most,” I stated firmly, cupping my hand on her cheek.
Beth’s face paled, and her mouth dropped. “You… you love me?”
I realized what I’d said. The words had been spoken, the feelings exposed. I knew how she felt, she had said it, and we knew how much we both meant to each other.
“Wasn’t exactly how I wanted to tell you, but, yes. I love you, Elizabeth Diane Huntley. I would move heaven and earth to make sure you and Angel were safe, secure and protected from all the evils in this world,” I declared. “You are now, and always will be, my life. Wherever this world takes you, Angel and I will follow.”
Beth fell against me, hanging onto me as if I was the only tangible thing on Earth which existed for her. Her final wall fell as she gave in to the knowledge that she could find happiness in love.

My love for books began at a very small age. I lived inside the many worlds the local library could provide. The characters within those pages were my companions and my support when I needed someone most.
My imagination began to soar as I grew. I began writing small poems as a teenager, but never thought much about publishing or expanding beyond put my words to paper.
After my children were born our love for a certain TV show fueled my love for writing. Using my children as inspiration, I began to write fanfiction, my children being the characters within the stories.
My passion for putting words to paper (or screen as is the norm now) has turned from passion to obsession. I’ve made some incredible friends through this journey and in turn, have become not only an author but a promoter and supporter for those whose imagination dreams character and worlds that I can lose myself in.
I thank my precious children, my beautiful soul-mate and my forever sister and best friend for being my constant rock and support as I continue to walk this road called life.

I watched the interaction between them through the camera lens. Beth wrapped her fingers around Angel’s tiny hands, pulling her up onto her feet. Beth took a step backward, lengthening the distance between them. Angel looked down at her feet, almost willing them to move. Her leg came up, moving her foot forward in a jerky motion. Her foot landed on a patch of grass, crushing it beneath her. She looked up at Beth, her eyes wide in amazement. She giggled as Beth stepped backwards again. She looked down and pulled her leg up, then realized she couldn’t move that one forward without losing her balance. She put her foot back down and raised the other leg. A smile spread across her face as she continued this beautiful dance with Beth.
They made their way slowly back to the blanket. When they were almost within arm’s length of me, Beth twisted around, so she was behind Angel. I stretched out my hands towards Angel, waiting to see if she would make the attempt on her own. So many things happened at once. Beth loosened her grip on Angel, Angel took an unsupported step forward, and Angel spoke her first real word as she reached out for me. “Dada!” Her tiny voice was clear and her tongue and lips formed the word precisely.
I was almost numb from the shock. Angel had made so many incoherent sounds over the months, but it had never been like this. She’d recognized me and had come to the realization that the word and I were connected. She repeated the word again and again as she took another unsupported step towards me. Then something grabbed her attention, throwing her concentration off. She lost her balance and grew quiet as she began to fall forward. I reached out, wrapping my hands protectively around her waist, pulling her into my arms.
I fell back onto the blanket, playing airplane with Angel above me. Her face morphed into so many different forms of joy and I laughed. She was such a happy child, and I swore to myself she would always be happy and loved. She would never know sadness or disappointment, not if I could help it.

Excerpt

What?” Liz was indignant when I told them about the episode that night. “Frankie, I don’t think you could possibly know that. Only Cain knows who belongs with us.”

Cain shushed Liz. “Why do you think this girl’s like us, Francesca?”

“I saw in her notebook?just one page?but it said stuff like, girl on bike, dark hair, schoolbag
strapped to rack with red luggage strap.
And old lady opening screen door for cat, wedges it open with yellow brick.
I gazed around at their faces as they registered the familiar. “It was like reading from our ledger.”

“Who is she?” Jude asked. He knew plenty of people around our age in Augur’s Well.

“Helen someone. Apparently she was in our year at school.”

“Helen Niven?”

“Maybe. Blonde girl, quite pretty. Her dad?”

“Yes, that’s her. Helen Niven.”

Cain’s face had lit up. “I need to see her.”

I nodded. “I got her number. Maybe if I ask her to meet me somewhere, you can come along too. If you watch us from a distance you might recognise Helen. If she’s one of your faces then you can come over and I’ll introduce you.”
“When?” There was an urgency to his tone.
“Uh, tomorrow maybe? She’s caring for her mother so I’ll need to find out when she’s free.”
“Message her now,” he said, nodding at my phone.

I complied, sending Helen a brief text message to ask if she wanted to meet tomorrow. Unsurprisingly, the message hung. The signal was unpredictable at best in this underground stone chamber. I figured it could wait to send until I was going home but Cain, noticing, offered to take my phone up to ground level to ensure the message went through.

I got to my feet. “I can go myself.”
He came with me anyway. I moved clear of the ruin and stood in the bright moonlight to watch the message finally blink with a sent time. Behind me, Cain slipped his arms around my waist and squeezed me close. “You are so goddamn amazing,” he breathed into my hair. “You can run into a girl at a coffee shop and identify the next member of our group
from a couple of words written in her notebook.”
“Uh, slow down,” I said. “We haven’t confirmed anything yet.” It was hard to focus on anything except his touch, especially when he pushed my hair to one side and pressed his lips to my neck. I tried to be business-like, repressing a shiver of pleasure as I checked my phone. “Do you want to go down now?”
“Do I want to go down?” he asked with a low laugh. “Oh, hell
yes!”
“Cain!” I got flustered. “That’s not what I meant.” However, he liked his meaning better and slipped a hand under the front of my shirt, kissing down my shoulders.
“We can’t do this.” My knees trembled as his hand made contact with the skin above my navel and inched its way upwards.
He nipped at my earlobe. “Why not?”

“Because one of the others might follow us up here.” I was rapidly losing conviction in my own argument. I twisted my head around to get my lips onto his. He pushed his fingers underneath my bra and I made a noise that sure didn’t sound like a protest. My phone chose that moment to beep with a new message, startling us both. I adjusted myself hastily and checked the screen. Cain groaned, trying to get his lips back onto my neck, but I twisted away. “Look. Helen’s replied.”

For a moment his desire warred with his sense of duty.
Before either could claim victory, I pushed him back from me and held my phone
up in front of his face. “She said tomorrow is good for her. Three-thirty at
the same café I met her in today.”
He nodded, defeated. “I’ll wait nearby. If I recognise her I’ll join you.”
“Come on.” I took his hand. “Let’s go back inside. They’ll think the worst if we stay out here any longer.”
“They’d be just about right,” Cain said, pulling me back effortlessly and locking me in his arms. “I’ll go back inside with you now but you, Francesca, had better stay around after everyone else has gone home tonight.”
Oh God, yes.
