Chapter One ~ Fleeing the Scene <p> Jo weaved her way through the multitude of people at Grand Central Station, all shoving and bustling as they made their way along their daily commute. A few gave her annoyed and irritated glances, but she was too distracted to notice. <p> Every so often, she though she saw the tail ends of a dark coat in the crowd, but it always disappeared before she got too close. <p> Finally, she arrived at the platform. The sleek train rested on the tracks before her, a constant stream flowing in and out of it. <p> There! Jo saw him, hauling his bags along, a out-of-place and out-of-time friend in a crowd of strangers. <p> "Henry!" She called, rushing forward. Henry stopped, turning around slowly. A flicker of disraught crossedhis ace before he hid it behind his mask. <p> "Detective. . ." He began, his voice taut. "Why are you here?" <p> "Doctor Henry Morgan! You're leaving?!" She didn't answer the question, instead marching over to him, her eyes blazing with anger. <p> Henry cringed at her tone. "Jo. . . I can explain. . ." <p> "I'm waiting." She tapped her foot on the hard ground, crossing her arm expectantly. <p> "I--" Henry closed his eyes, sighing through his nose. "I can't stay in New York any longer, Jo." <p> "Why not?" Her angered expression turned to confusion. <p> "It's--" He fell silent, searching for an answer. He felt bad about lying to the detective, but, in truth, someone had seen him die and disappear. Only if he disappeared could he convince them it hadn't been real. "My cousin. They are chronically ill and have requested my presence." He winced internally at how fake it sounded. <p> Jo didn't seem entirely convinced. She pursed her lips. "What about Abe?" <p> "We have promised to stay in touch with each other." He gripped his luggage tighter, his knuckles turning white. <p> "Okay, but why--" The detective was cut off by the train's sharp whistled and a loud cry. <p> Henry looked up. "I'm sorry, Jo. I must be going." He turned and boarded the train, leaving Jo standing alone on the platform, her eyes wide in bewilderent. <p> "O-kay. . . Goodbye, Henry. . ."
