A SUMMER BREEZE BLEW THROUGH ALEXANDRA EVANS’ WAVY CHESTNUT colored hair as she leaned against the hood of her 1985 Alfa Romeo Spider.
The waters of the Chesapeake Bay sparkled in the sunlight and for the first
time in a long time, Lex smiled. Stretching her arms over her head, her
fingers touched the windshield of the little red convertible. “I think this might
actually work,” she said to herself aloud.
There were very few clouds in the sky and Lex placed an arm over her
eyes to block out some of the sun. She thought about what she wanted to do
with her last day of freedom. “Mr. Willis said I need to be at the Estate by
two p.m. So I can stay out this evening and still have plenty of time to spare,”
she reasoned with herself.
Lex had always been a planner. Even as a child, she’d written herself
schedules, lists and daily tasks to keep organized. And while it had become
near impossible to control every aspect of her life as an adult, that didn’t stop

cottage was picturesque, with bright flowers lining large stepping stones up
to the wrap around porch. The steps creaked slightly under her weight as she
walked up to the front door, the place clearly showing its age.
Grabbing the small brass knocker, Lex tapped it three times and waited
patiently for her host. “Coming!” an elderly voice sounded from behind the
door. “You must be Lex,” the woman said as she welcomed her inside.
“Yes, thank you, ma’am,” Lex responded politely.
The woman matched her house perfectly. Her white hair was tied back in
a loose bun atop her head with not a hair out of place. She wore a delicate
blouse, a loose skirt and a pair of sneakers. She had obviously lost a few
inches over the course of her life but Lex imagined she must have been a true
beauty when she was younger. The house itself was the perfect beach cottage,
with seashells and little knick-knacks strategically placed throughout the
