The men exchanged concerned glances, which caught Chase’s eye. “Tell him,” Lancaster whispered to Church.
Sitting back in the chair, Chase rested his arms on the chair and clasped his hands over his middle. “What’s going on?” he asked, looking between his men.
Church slid an identifier across the table toward him. The image was of a young woman with short brown hair and eyes that he couldn’t forget if he tried. Oh, by the Crown …
“Trista,”Chase whispered, lifting the card closer to his face. The card read, Krissa Carlisle. “Where did you get this?” he demanded.
Church rubbed his chin before he met Chase’s gaze. “She’s onboard, Chase,” he said quietly.
Surprise and shock stole Chase’s breath. “Where?” he insisted, rising to head to the door.
“The men took her prisoner, Cap,” Lancaster said.
Church stepped between Chase and the door, shooting Lancaster a disapproving scowl. His look softened as he stared at Chase. “She’s safe, Chase. She’s alone, locked in the conference room. Marlen’s watching over her. I know you want to see her, but we need to get on this plan. We’re working against time.”
Chase swallowed hard, nodding as he stared at Krissa’s identifier. Why the Crown would choose to bring them back together when he was so broken was beyond him. And as much as he wanted to see her, he had to ask himself if he was ready to do so. According to previous reports, she wouldn’t remember him. Could he take that kind of hurt?
