"What's Past is Prologue..."

Time Lapse is the story of a woman with an incredible secret and a man with a powerful curiosity. An inadvertent trip twenty years into the past involves the characters as suspects in a murder, a murder still unsolved when they escape back to their own time. Back in the present, they set out to discover the killer and uncover the conspiracy that led to the murder. They become targets of the relentless killer from the past as well as a killer in the present. They must work together to solve the crimes both old and new. Their hearts are equally at risk as they unwillingly fall in love. Against their wishes, and despite disastrous former marriages, the romantic bond between them grows. Will they survive to spend their lives together?

Retired teacher Jane Tun, a book-a-day reader, lives on a farm near Ottawa, Canada, with her husband and 2 cats. Her time is spent reading, writing, gardening, running a small ceramics business in her home and, of course, concocting adventures for the characters that live in her head.

Chapter 6

"Come on. We've got about half a minute before they discover we're gone. Run!"

They ran. They had just crossed the back lawn and entered the woods when a shout sounded behind them. Molly looked over her shoulder and saw policemen come round the side of the house and break into a run. Desperation fueled her feet.

Branches slapped at their faces and clutched at their clothing. Jake's long legs scissored slightly ahead of her as he used the carry-all bag to push aside the largest branches. Mac's cries had ceased.

Gasping for breath, she forced her legs to keep moving. What if they couldn't.... No, she wouldn't think of that. They had to find the way home. A quick glance over her shoulder revealed a welcome sight. The two policemen had dropped behind. She realized they had no reason to fear their suspects would get away. The woods were small and their prey was on foot.

When they burst into the small clearing the light was almost gone. Molly led Jake around the edge of the rock until they were facing the direction from which she had arrived two years before. The scene looked normal, ordinary. Nothing at all hinted at the presence of some weird passageway through time.

She lifted her face to Jake's.

"Ready?" he whispered. Behind them the sounds of cursing and stumbling feet drew closer.

"Yes." Her grip tightened on Jake's hand.

He leaned forward and pressed a quick, hard kiss on her mouth. Then, hand in hand, they walked across the flat boulder to the other side.
