Author’s Note: I was reading some comments on the group last week and someone (I think it might have been Nancy said she liked the stories that looked into Characters like Caroline Adama) so this story was inspired by those comments. Todd Myers is a Minor Character from another one of my stories and the only thing I own here.


Caroline looked out of the window. She saw two officers walking up to the front door. She left the room and went to the door.

She recognized one of the officers immediately. “Todd?”

“Caroline, may we come in?”

The formality that he used sent a cold fear through her. Something was wrong. She stepped aside and let them inside.

“Caroline, I think you should sit down.”

“Caroline, It’s my sad duty to inform you…” the room began to spin. Todd continued to speak. The glass she was holding shattered, as did her life.

Her baby, Zac, wouldn’t be coming home.
