Whoever she was, she came so loudly she wouldn’t have heard me sidestep
them in the dark.
Apparently, I wasn’t the only one sneaking away from the masquerade
ball to get some air. Although, judging from the noise, she was getting a
fuck load more than air.
“Oh yeah, baby, just like that,” a male voice groaned.
I wrinkled my nose and hurried on through the trees. They probably
didn’t hear the twig snap under my foot, or the music that poured out of the
ballroom and into the night. They wouldn’t have heard anything but the roar
of blood through their veins, and their moans.
I slanted away from them and headed toward the lake.
I pushed my mask off my face and up onto the top of my head. Strands
of hair fell around my face, knocked loose by the elastic on either side of
the mask. I pulled the clip out and let the rest of my red hair fall down my
back, wild and wavy.
I picked up my skirt and stepped carefully over a fallen log. My black
chiffon gown was long enough no one noticed I wore flat shoes instead of
the heels my mother wanted. In sequin stilettos, I would have fallen flat on
No thank you.
She also wanted me to wear pink, like I was still a kid or something.
Pink would have clashed with my hair like bubblegum on a tomato. Thank
fuck she listened to reason in the end. Although, only because she was busy
with plans for her wedding. Fighting with me took a back seat for a change.
“I was on my way.”
I froze at the sound of voices up ahead. How many couples had crept
away for air?
I cocked my head and listened. The sound which carried on the breeze
wasn’t fucking. It was talking. Several voices. Tense, tight.
My breath held, I stepped toward them on silent feet.
“I tried to leave, but the boss, he needed…” The tremble of fear in the
speaker’s voice sent a shiver up my spine.
I stopped. I shouldn’t be here, listening. Whatever was going on, they
were out here in the night for a reason. Obviously. People didn’t sneak
around in the dark just for the hell of it.
“That’s crap and you know it,” another voice said. Also male. “We’ve
given you enough chances. How many is it now?”
A third voice spoke but I couldn’t make out the words.
“Please…” That was the first man. His words were accompanied by the
sudden tang of urine. “I was an accident, I swear.”
“Bullshit,” the second guy growled.
