Gray clouds scudded across the low sky, promising to bring snow before morning. But Jenny Ashley paid no attention to the threatening clouds, or to the cold that bit through her ski jacket, as she walked along the path beside the deep lagoon. Her head was bent and her hands were jammed in the pockets of the down jacket.
She kicked a stone off the snowy path and watched it splash into the water; the ripples widening out to the bank. A mallard duck, startled by her passing, flew from under a bush and splashed awkwardly into the water.
Jenny pulled the knitted stocking cap down tighter around her ears and blew on her mittened hands. Watching the ducks was not an ideal pastime for a December day, but it was better than sitting in that tiny waiting room up at the hospital, waiting for the next time her father could have a visitor. After an eight-hour drive, sitting any more was the last thing she wanted to do.
