The Grove Suites Chapter 5
It was about three hours later when Cara got up the nerve to ask Bob about his conversation with the detective. “Bob, what all did the detective ask you about?
“He asked me if I knew of anyone who would want to hurt our daughter.” Answered Bob as he turned to stare at his wife pensively across the room.
“Is there anyone who would want to hurt my daughter that you know of Bob?” questioned Cara as she looked back at him with a look of fear on her face.
Getting up from his seat and going over to her he put his arms around her and tried to put her fears to rest with his answer, “Not that I know of, baby, I could not think of anyone that would intentionally want to hurt our Lisa.”
“I just do not understand where she could have disappeared to Bob, I just do not understand what is going on.” Cried Cara as she pulled out of his embrace and began to pace the room.
His next statement however brought Cara to her knees and paralyzed her all the way to her soul. “Honey, do you think it could have been Ruben? I mean he was infatuated with you at one point and you did not give him a second glance, maybe he took Lisa to try to get to you.” Replied Bob with the hidden question shining in his eyes.
“Bob…I…do…not…know…” stammered Cara as the fear gripped her that somehow, he knew about her affair and the true birth right of Lisa.
“But it could be a possibility, honey, I mean it would be worth the detective looking into don’t you think?” questioned Bob glancing at his wife. The expression on his face showed concern, but in his eyes, shined a question that Cara was afraid he already knew the answer too.
Nodding slowly, she answered, “Yes, baby, it is worth at least mentioning to the detective. I mean what if it was to lead to Lisa’s rescue? That would be all that matters.”
