FREAKS OF GREENFIELD HIGH

By Maree Anderson

Dr. Alexander Jay Durham squinted through a gap in the blinds at the convoy snaking up the dirt road.

Perhaps the startling cobalt hue of her eyes would make her too remarkable, too memorable. Perhaps he'd endangered her by-

He reined in his fears. She was skilled at subterfuge. She would cope admirably without him. He had to believe that. "We haven't got much time," he said. "Do you know what to do?"
