It was almost a month now since the announcement that Garrett was coming back to Lakemont, and ever since then Anne McKenna had seen his face no matter where she looked. At least it seemed that way, and it was certainly true that his photograph had been plastered up in odd places all over the city for the past thirty days.
It was Garrett’s face on the huge billboard that dominated the freeway exit to the university campus. It was Garrett’s crooked smile on the back of the Metroliner bus that cut Anne off at a traffic light downtown and left her cursing — though she wasn’t quite certain whether it was the bus or the smile that annoyed her more. It was Garrett’s Roman nose and untidy, windblown hair plastered over every newsstand in the city. And every morning, when she picked up the Chronicle from her doormat, there was Garrett staring at her from the top of the front page, with that slightly quizzical twinkle in his eyes and the tall red letters underneath that teased, Garrett’s Back in Town.
