Want Another Peek?

You’ve been communicating with someone on the outside, someone running an investigation on everything that’s been happening. I’m only telling you this because whoever you’ve been talking to should know what’s happening here.” Abbi nodded. “The President collapsed in his quarters moments ago. I heard someone say he wasn’t breathing. A bunch of doctors and such are in there with him right now.
