Songbird: Amy & Rebecca

Amy is on her way into her condo when she hears a familiar voice calling out to her. She turns to face Rebecca Asher.

“Yes, Ms. Asher. What can I do for you now?”

“Just curious if you had any comment on the remains found near Toccoa.”

“What remains?”

“So, you haven’t heard. A couple of hikers stumbled across some bones a few miles into the woods near Shayna’s cabin.”

“When did this happen?”

“Mid-morning today. The coroner hasn’t officially made a statement, but I have a contact near the investigation who says the bones appear to be those of a woman.”

“I have no comment at this time.”

“You sure about that? If it turns out to be Shayna, you might want to try to get ahead of it.”

“I strongly doubt it’s Shayna. But I’m not going to idly speculate on anything until I hear from the authorities.”

“That’s your prerogative, I guess.”

Amy turns to leave. “Goodbye, Ms. Asher.”

“It’s only a matter of time before we find out the truth, Amy,” Rebecca says. “You could make it easy on yourself by coming clean now.”

Amy turns back.

“Ms. Asher. As soon as I have anything to share, trust me, you’ll be the first to know.”

“I’m going to hold you to that, Amy. See you around.”
