Returned to Cascade

Jim couldn't believe the news. He even had Simon Banks, his captain and friend, repeat it.

"Just get here to the hospital, Jim! Blair will expect you when he comes to."

"Okay, okay, Simon! I'm on my way!"

Jim hung up the phone and remembered two weeks earlier when Blair's car had been found abandoned by the side of the highway, still smoldering from the effects of someone setting fire to it. Jim had been at the scene, already worried why Blair was late getting home from Seattle, not answering his cell phone and then nowhere near the abandoned wreckage of his car.

A statewide alert was put out with the hopes that Blair would be found and returned to Cascade. Jim kept his hopes alive along with everyone else. But as the time passed, Jim had abandoned his hopes, and was slowly accepting that Blair might not be coming home.


Jim arrived at the hospital and ran inside, going up to Intensive Care, where Simon had told him Blair was. Jim came up short just outside Blair's room and extended out his senses, hoping it really was Blair inside the room. All of his senses told him it was Blair. He slowly walked inside the room and over to the bed, standing opposite of Simon.

"The state patrol called me first because my name was the first contact on the APB sheet we sent out."

"I understand that, Simon. Do they know what happened to him?"

"The doctor says he's been beaten, both arms have breaks, as well as both legs. Someone did a number on him. Somehow, he got away from his captors and a passing motorist found him in the ditch by the side of the road just outside of the city limits of Seattle. But he had been out in the weather for the last several days. Between the pain, exposure, and fear for his life, he's exhausted. The doctor put him on life-support for his own good."

"I had given up hope, Simon. How could I not believe he'd come back…?"

"It's understandable, Jim."


It was almost a week later before Blair returned to consciousness. Even then, it was slow and only partial. But he noticed Jim was by his side.

Jim noticed the small smile on Blair's face. He patted Blair on the head. "It's okay, Blair. You're safe."

"Ru…mors of m-my death is premature." Blair closed his eyes, the smile still on his face.

"No truer words were ever spoken, Chief." Jim settled in the chair to wait.
