“HE’S GOING TO THROW A PUNCH,” Oscar Oliveira says, observing my
hot-blooded, twenty-two-year-old boyfriend.
I watch the same scene from the same vantage point as Oscar.
All six of us in Security Force Omega “guard” the double-door entrance
of the Philadelphia Orchestra Hall. Two thousand of the richest fuckers I’ve
ever seen fill scarlet velveteen seats. The main level and balcony tiers are
packed tight, and a string quartet plays a classical piece on stage, ruby
curtains drawn open.
Tucked up against the left-side emergency exit, my boyfriend looks ready
Maximoff speaks hushed, but his brows furrow and he gesticulates
madly. Inching closer and closer to the uppity suit-and-tie organizer of
tonight’s “unprecedented” event.
I slowly chew my gum, arms loosely crossed. But I hardly blink. I watch.
And the forty-something organizer with Gucci shoes and glaringly white
teeth visibly steps towards Maximoff.
In an affront.
My arms drop, instinct about to propel me down the left aisle—
“Farrow.” My name is spoken in a warning.
Out of the corner of my eye, I spot Akara Kitsuwon, the Omega lead.
“Farrow,” he repeats, his friendly expression now strict. Reminding me
not to leave my position. His tailor-fit black Hugo Boss suit is identical to all
Not exactly my style. I shrugged off the required suit jacket an hour ago.
What remains: a black button-down tucked in black slacks. I run my thumb
over my silver lip piercing and eye my boyfriend.
I can’t fall back in line yet.
Maximoff grows more incensed, his eyes flamed and body bowed
forward with fervor. Like if he tries hard enough, he can mold the lopsided
I want to be beside him. To ease him back, to hold him. Cool him off.
Even if his fuse has been justifiably cut short tonight.
Never did I think we’d end up here, just two weeks after I detained
Maximoff’s stalker, who turned out to be Jane’s friends-with-benefits. I comb
a hand through my dyed black hair, and I restrain myself from rushing to
See, I’m still the 24/7 bodyguard to Maximoff Hale, but I’m not supposed
to protect him at this specific event.
And we all know how I feel about rules.
Behind me, the double door cracks open, and six heads turn. Mine
Oscar grasps the handle, widening the door for…a server in a tux. He
balances a tray of champagne and descends the aisle.
Oscar lets his annoyance cross his face as he lets go of the handle, the
heavy door closing itself. “It’s official,” he says.
I pop a bubble and tilt my head to the oldest Omega bodyguard, and also,
one of my longest friends. “You’ve been demoted to a doorman,” I finish his
“Not just me, Redford.”
“Technically, you’re the only one holding the door,” I say, half-interested
because in my peripheral, I watch Maximoff shake his head repeatedly at the
organizer and force out the word no.
Adrenaline pours through my veins, goading me to go to him.
“No one’s a doorman,” Akara says as he texts on his phone. “We’re
guarding the entrance.” He pockets his cell, subtly reminding us of the
stipulation we all agreed to.
