“Thought you had me fooled, didn’t you, Jack? Selling me a wild goose chase about the Fountain of Youth.” Mr. Liaberco clamped the hat on his head. “Did you really imagine you could get the best of an old news hound?”

Nessa said, “Don’t you know it’s dangerous to drive in a hurricane, Mr. Liaberco?”

He laughed, a cool, mirthless sound that held no humor. “A little storm won’t keep me from getting this story.”

“What story?” Jack asked. “You just said the Fountain of Youth is a wild goose chase.”

“It is. But the story you’re really here for isn’t.”
