It wasn’t often that his uncle stopped at the office, so when he showed up, Campbell suspected something was wrong.
“Is Aunt Nakusa okay? The kids?”
Johnny smiled and shook his head. “They are fine. I need to talk to you about something else.”
He sat down and looked across the desk at his nephew. “Threats have been made against you, Campbell. My brother’s son and my halfsister. They are upset over what happened to their fathers.”
Campbell was shocked and confused. “I didn’t have anything to do with what happened.”
“I know. They think that if they use you, they can get to your father and grandfather.”
Campbell knew that was the way to his dad and grandpa. They would both give their lives for the family. He wasn’t going to let that happen.
“Have you talked to Grandpa?”
Johnny shook his head. “I don’t want him or your father going after the two of them. I just wanted to warn you about them.”
Campbell nodded. “You do know that if they come after me, Abbey, or our daughter, I will do whatever I have to do to protect us?”
Johnny nodded. “I wouldn’t expect anything less. Your wife and daughter were never mentioned. It is only you they are after.”
Campbell leaned back thinking about that. “Thank you for letting me know. I will do what I can to make sure nobody gets hurt.”
He watched his uncle leave and wondered what he should do about this. He didn’t want to hurt anybody. Tierra was his cousin. He definitely didn’t want to cause her any harm. He didn’t even know Willie.
He needed to talk to his grandfather about this one. He wanted to protect his father and grandfather, but he also didn’t want to hurt his cousin or anybody else.
