Cassie Chambers paced the creaky floorboards. The nerves on her fingertips tingled with maximum alert like a plasma lamp.

She gripped her cell phone for a lifeline. “I need help. Melissa’s taken off. I went to her room to say goodnight, and she’s gone.”

“The withdrawals must be playing her,” Tamara’s voice held tones of compassion.

“I hate when this happens.” Cassie rubbed her forehead, as if that could take away her frustration. “You give these girls your everything, then they go back to the old scene in a moment. We’ll have to start all over again.”
