The Van Helsing Impetus – Excerpt No. 382

“How did you know that patrol was random?” Clara asked.

“At the time? It was an educated guess. Now we know, because they didn’t leverage the missing patrol against you,” Evelyn replied. “They were well behind you when they got word of those blasts and it’s been silent since.”

“So they’re hedging their bets?” Clara asked. “As a way to make sure I haven’t slipped past their nets?”

“That would be my guess,” Evelyn replied. “Police are refusing to comment. They claim doing so would risk the integrity of their investigation.”

“So,” Clara said after swallowing. “They don’t know if I’m alive or not.”

Exactement,” Evelyn replied.

“Their plan also fails if they overshoot my current location,” Clara added.
