Nessa clasped Jack’s hand. Mr. Sterling crowded close to Sheriff Garrison’s left shoulder. They all waited for Mr. Tennies to speak.

He shifted his weight and leaned against the sheriff’s cruiser, resting his narrow backside on his manacled hands. “I came to offer my assistance in removing the tree from the drive.”

“And took a side trip into the greenhouse office?” Sheriff Garrison flicked sheets of paper between her first and second fingers. She’d confiscated the lab results from Mr. Tennies’s jacket pocket during the routine pat down after she’d issued his Miranda warning. “Come on, Tenner. The truth.”

“Truth is, this is all a misunderstanding.”
