Reggie Chronicle 3 



Shea hung up and stretched his back, tight from sitting still for so long, in order not to scare away potential deer. He took in his surroundings.


The large clearing would make a picturesque site for a home with enough room for a small coral and nice-sized barn. Reggie would love it.

Something strange appeared in the distance. At first, he couldn’t put a finger on it. Then it registered. A large magnolia tree stood in front of the farthest tree line. They didn’t grow naturally in the area. It had been purposely planted. He stalked off toward the tree, carrying his weapon.

Wyatt’s all-terrain vehicle roared in the distance, growing closer. Shea didn’t worry. Wyatt would spot the deer and stop in the clearing.

The thick-leaved tree was tall, full and healthy, though at this time of year blossoms were dormant. Grass was thick and lush in front of it,  but the ground had sunk a couple inches. Something was buried there.

Be a pet–please. Shea shook his head as he prayed.

Wyatt parked beside Shea’s buck. The big man climbed off his rig and tied a rope to Shea’s catch, then used the winch on the four-wheeler to drag the hefty animal onto racks attached to the hood. Wyatt’s deer lay strapped atop rear racks. Once he secured the buck, he climbed back on the seat and drove to where Shea waited.

“Hey, partner, what gives?” Wyatt grinned, climbing off to stand beside Shea.

Shea nodded toward the patch of sunken ground. “Grave; hope it’s not human.”

Wyatt rubbed silver stubs beginning to probe through his tanned, square jaw. “By the size of it, it’s a big critter or we’re out of luck.”

“My thinking exactly.” Shea groaned as he pulled their folding pack shovel from its binding beside Wyatt’s deer. He walked to the gravesite, followed by Wyatt with his own shove. The men began carefully digging at one corner.
