So it wasn’t long before silence and darkness crept up over Will like warm covers being draped over his eyes.
* * *
There was a good thirty seconds of indecision and shock for Lia until she screamed once, and began to yell for help. The man on the front steps was something that once resembled Will, only beaten into a bloody mess. The puddle of blood under Will was slowly getting bigger. Lia got woozy for a moment, and thought she might faint, but she denied herself that luxury. Will needed help… Kieran would need help. And that was her job after all.Oh no, Kieran,Lia thought as she continued to yell for help. She knew this would tear him apart. And though she didn’t understand the politics of what was happening, she understood that this was not good.

The first men to come rushing over were people Lia recognized. They worked with Kieran often. She knew one was named Riley. At first they stood there in shock. Then one of the older men shook himself loose of the paralyzing shock and began to bark out orders.


“Don’t touch him!”
he yelled at one guy who rushed to kneel next to Will. “No one move him!” He turned to someone inside the house. “Get Kieran,” he ordered. Someone Lia couldn’t see rushed away to follow orders. Lia realized she was standing behind the men with her hands over her mouth.

It wasn’t long before Kieran came out of the door, going as fast as possible in a wheelchair. His pained facial expression when he saw Will almost made Lia cry. He looked as if someone had stolen his favorite object right from under his arms. Lia was the only one that watched him struggle to keep control. All the other men looked away in respect. They also knew how hard it must be for him.

There was about a minute of complete silence while Kieran watched his friend bleeding onto his front patio as he struggled to pull himself together. Then he spoke.


“Who found him?”
Kieran asked, looking at the people gathered around Will.

They all looked over at Lia, who slowly raised her hand. They made eye contact. Lia looked at Kieran sadly, and she saw Kieran’s face harden again. “How did you find him?” Kieran asked her, no longer on the brink of a mental and emotional breakdown.

“I came out to get something from my car,” Lia admitted. “And I saw a car speed down the driveway. I was so distracted by the car I almost tripped over Will.” Lia kept her eyes trained on the ground.

She couldn’t look at Kieran- or anyone else for that matter while she spoke. She especially couldn’t look at Will again. She was just glad he wasn’t conscious for the pain.

After momentary silence, Lia looked back up at Kieran- who seemed to be thinking since he was staring into space. The men crowded around Will on the ground were looking to Kieran for further instruction. After a few more seconds of utter silence, Kieran snapped back to attention.


“Riley,”
Kieran addressed.


“Sir?”
Riley stood.


“Call Gilroy. Get him over here now.”
Riley rushed into the house. “Nolan, call St. Helen’s hospital downtown, ask for Dr. McNamara. If anyone asks who’s called tell them it’s me. When you speak to the doctor, tell him I’m calling in that favor, and ask him to come out here. Tell him this is off record.” Nolan nodded and dutifully went into the house again. “Murphy-“ Kieran continued, “call Diesel, ask him to come out here. Tell him it’s urgent.” Murphy went into the house before Kieran was barely done speaking. Now Kieran turned his attention to Lia. “Lia,” Kieran said.


Lia looked up to Kieran and made eye contact with him again. Lia went over to her boss, and knelt in front of him.


“Are you okay?”
she asked gently.


“I’m fine,”
Kieran lied. “Can you go get Will a blanket? He’s shivering.” Lia stood, knowing he had shrugged her concern off.


“Of course,”
Lia responded, and headed into the house. Once in the house, she noticed things were very stressed. The tension in the house was at an all time high. Everyone knew what was going on. Even new employees seemed uncomfortable. Lia supposed it didn’t take long to figure out what was really happening in the O’Meara family.

She didn’t remember the first time she figured it out; she had been so young when she first started working here. Lia just silently prayed Kieran wouldn’t make any rash decisions as a result of this terrible crime.
