Hillside NaNo Novel
With trembling fingers she felt for the button inside the drawer. The back compartment wall opened forward. Inside was a manila envelop. She cautiously opened it and took out three letters.
"Here they are," she said to herself. She looked at each letter, then put them back inside the envelop. The fog was coming back. She hoped she would remember. She returned the envelop to the compartment and closed the door.
As she rose from the desk, she heard Diesel growling from the kitchen. Out of the corner of her eye she saw a man come through the front door.
"You're coming with me."
When Diesel came into the room barking, the man kicked at the dog, then grabbed her arm pulling her outside and shoved her into the van. He drove them quickly out the back exit of the Museum grounds.
She heard Diesel barking and thought she saw someone watching from the Volunteer Office inside the barn as the drove away.
