The following excerpt is rated PG:

The first light of morning gently woke me from the warm comfort of slumber. Maggie was there beside me, still asleep. She was beautiful. I wondered if I was dreaming. All the years I had spent alone, waiting for her, and now she was here, and she loved me. I loved her beyond words.

I slowly got up, not wanting to wake her, and pulled on my jeans and shirt. I went outside and stood on the front porch, admiring the magnificence of the sunrise. It was going to be another beautiful day. I had just turned to go back inside when a shot rang out through the thin morning air and a bullet tore through a log at the corner of the front of the cabin. I flew in the doorway, slammed the door, and locked it.

Maggie sat up with terror in her eyes. “Oh my God, no, no. It's him, I know it's him.”

“Maggie, go upstairs now and lock your door!”

“Not without you. We can call the police from the bedroom.”

“Maggie, I know what I’m doing. You go up and lock the door. I have to radio headquarters, and they'll alert the local authorities. I'll be up in two minutes, I promise. Now go! Now!”

Finally she ran up the stairs.

After I radioed headquarters, I grabbed my gun and ran upstairs. I only knocked once before the door flew open and a frightened Maggie flew into my arms. I pushed her back into the room and slammed the door, locking it.

I crouched down below the front window and slowly rose to peer outside. An orange form caught my eye. A man in an orange hunting suit was walking towards the cabin.

He stopped about fifteen feet in front of the porch and yelled, “I'm really sorry, man. It was an accident.”

Cautiously, I opened the window and yelled down to him. “What the hell are you doing shooting so close to the house? This is a restricted area and I'm a federal agent. I don't want to see you around here again. You could have killed me!”

“My rifle misfired, buddy. I'm really sorry. You won't see me again.” And he walked off down the hill and was gone.

“It's okay now, Maggie. It was just a hunter. I radioed the agency. I think I'll let the sheriff show up and give him a statement about the hunter, just to be on the safe side.” I looked up to see Maggie cowering in the corner. I quickly went to her, pulled her close, and held her in my arms.
