The Touch - A Gift - Part Seven

As they drove back to their base, the first five minutes or so of the trip was quiet; far too quiet, and finally, Todd had to say something. "Let's stop at that church on the way back. They should be letting out any time now." Steve nodded. The rest of the ride was as quiet as the first, and both... Sign in to see full entry.

The Touch - A Gift - Part Six

Early May, 1975 It was an unusual Sunday morning at the ambulance base.
