In a perfect world, Kee would only talk to horses.
Cherokee Jones loved his job. He worked on a horse farm, lived in a little cabin on site, and didn’t have to deal with people. He had the life. Yes, he was reeling over a few losses, like college and his best friend, but the job made the losses bearable. Then one Matt Tucker appeared on the scene. The guy oozed niceness, rode horses like a jockey, and he had this brilliant idea for a summer horse camp for kids. He was too good to be true, and Kee couldn’t stand the guy.
The whole thing was a nightmare, and when Kee breaks his foot at the camp, the nightmare deepens, because Matt kidnaps him from the hospital. Yep, forces him into his car, takes him home to his super nice roommates, and pampers him. It was all people all the time, and Kee wasn’t sure he could handle it.
Except after a while, it didn’t hurt so much. Then it reminded him of how life used to be, when he didn’t crave isolation. That was a dangerous way of thinking, because Kee couldn’t get close to people. He couldn’t let that happen again.
Because Kee was a murderer, and that meant he didn’t deserve to be pampered and protected. Isolation was safer for everyone, just he and God out in a cabin alone. Only it seemed God had changed the rules of the game, and now the past was in his face, and Matt Tucker was in his hair, and some ridiculous girl wanted to talk to him all the time, while he just wanted to escape back to the good life where all that mattered was the job.
