The photographer nodded, wringing her hands, and Nathan picked up his cell phone and made for the front door.
"I'll give him a call."
As soon as he stepped out, however, he tucked the phone away. Still holding the note, and after looking to make sure the hall was clear, he swallowed back his nerves and tried to speak Micah's Name.
