lunchtime, Becky stood at a mirror in the Ladies Room next to a slender, busty girl who smiled a lot. Becky introduced herself and said, “What can you tell me about Jack Butters?”
    The girl frowned. “Which one? Jack seems to have a different set of personalities for every situation and none of them talk with each other.” She finished and left. Becky looked in her own eyes. She said to herself, “I’ve only seen one.”
     
    Chapter 6
     
    That night, Becky learned a little more about Sylvia, her rival for Jack’s affections. Sylvia was a lawyer as well as an accomplished businesswoman. She’d competed in horseback riding in the Olympics and brought home a silver medal.
    Becky leaned back in the chair. “She’s beautiful and worthwhile, but I’m not going to be discouraged.” She shut her computer down. As she headed for the bedroom to change into her nightgown, she said to herself, “I need to know if she’s worthy of Jack. There’s nothing wrong with that. I’m not prying. I’m just taking care of him. I’ll see what she’s up to tomorrow morning before they go to work.
     
    The next morning before sunrise, Becky made her way through a thick forest in a ravine in the mountains.
    She poked her binoculars between two bushes.
    Jack Butters lived in a mansion made of huge timbers with the bark still on them. It stretched three stories up into the clean British Columbian air. He'd put it on one side of the broad ravine with a view of the Straits out his front room window. His wealth and political connections made it possible for him to ignore local zoning ordinances and clear a large portion of the forest.
    Jack and Sylvia occupied the same bed. Becky sniffed at that. “She’s thin. He deserves a woman with curves.” She watched Sylvia go to breakfast and Jack leave the house. “I shouldn’t be surprised that he already has a woman. I’m different. I might have an edge.”
    She watched him go to his stables and lead a dragon out of its stall and away from the main building. She lost sight of him when he and the dragon walked around an outcropping from the mountain.
     
    Jack could have been leading a bull. He held one end of a rawhide cord twelve feet long. The other end attached to a ring going through the nose of the dragon.
    He carried a small electronic device in his hand.
    His property ended in a small box canyon with sheer walls seventy feet high. Butters positioned the dragon in the middle of the canyon and stepped back. He pressed a button on his device and the dragon blew a column of flame against the canyon wall. The flame carried a blue color through most of its length, turning yellow only at the end.
    Jack patted the animal and spoke softly to it. He unhooked his leather cord from the nose ring and pressed another button on the device. The dragon slowly and clumsily stepped around to face out of the canyon. It awkwardly spread his wings. They spread with creaks and groans from the beast.
    Once the wings unfurled, the dragon took three strong steps and launched. Jack let him fly for a few minutes then called him back and led him back to his stall.
     
    Chapter 7
     
    The day after was Saturday. Becky loaded her Jeep Wrangler with food and drove to the mountains. She parked out of sight in a small turn-out and walked through the woods. It was hot and sunny. The moisture in the underbrush made it feel like a sauna. Before she'd gone ten feet, her shirt was clinging to her body.
    The day before, when she’d watched Jack, she’d used a spot just off the road. She wanted to be closer, and she wanted to look around the outcropping. She didn’t suspect Jack of illegal activities. She just wanted to see what he was doing. She walked a mile into the forest.
    She caught sight of surveillance cameras in the trees. She said to herself, “Not surprising. He’s worth a lot of money.”
    It took a few minutes to find a dead spot none of the cameras covered. She crept through small bushes to the edge
