Worried because her sister hadn't recovered her spirits all evening, she opened the door and looked in, expecting to find the girl soundly asleep. Her heart sank when she saw the empty bed.

If he had actually tried to do to her what she had seen Roper doing to that woman— The remembered image flashed in her mind again, tormenting her.
