“So there’s no special guy in your life?” Adam asked.

“No. I don’t have time for dating. You?”

“Happily single.” With a miserable track record. He wasn’t about to reveal his baggage on this pleasant stroll up the mountainside.

“Don’t we make a pair,” he eventually said.

She shrugged. “Guess we’re too career-minded.”

For once in his life, he didn’t like the notion of putting business first. Work had been a pleasure, then an escape for him. Now? With the purchase of the Deep North up in the air, along with his future, what would his third act be?

They passed the first lookout and continued climbing. The incline became steep for a quarter mile, then flattened out. He could hear Carrie’s labored breathing as she grabbed hold of his arm for support. He stopped, shrugged off his backpack and reached inside to remove a water bottle.

“Drink,” he said as he handed it over. He enjoyed the rush when their fingers brushed.

“Thanks.” She opened it and gulped a mouthful, then wiped her lips with the back of her hand.

“No wonder you’re the fearless leader. I didn’t think to bring any water.”

“That’s why I get the big bucks.”

She took a few more sips and nodded. “Of course. What was I thinking?”

“Also, I’ve been trained in search and rescue, so I’m always prepared.”

“So I can wander off the trail and you’ll find me?”

“I think I’d always be able to find you.”
