I walk in, dropping my keys on the entryway table as I pass on my way to
the kitchen. I dart my eyes up.
There are no lights on upstairs.
If she left me, I’m going to burn the whole fucking world down until I
find her, and if she took my kid, I’m really going to take my time with her.
This is bullshit. When I call, you answer. When my men pass you the phone,
you take the goddamn call! I have no idea what the hell I did now, but I’m
going to have to break something to keep myself from wringing her precious,
Cutting my trip short to race home, because she decides to ignore my
calls and do little pirouettes all over my peace of mind? What the fuck? I
knew I should’ve been single. I knew that I knew that, because this is what
women do, isn’t it? They take you and ball you up into a nice, little, fucking
knot until you can’t breathe, and…
I clench my fists, shaking my head. Bullshit. This is such bullshit!
I charge down the hall toward the kitchen, ready to hit the attached garage
and grab myself some rope to remind her whom she’s in love with, but I spot
a figure out on the patio and stop.
It’s raining outside. Who’s there?
I change directions and head for the windows.
Heath Davis, one of the guards Mr. Garin hired for the night shift, leans
against the bricks of the house, shielded from the rain under the awning. His
hands sit in his pockets and a cigarette hangs out of his mouth. Smoke
billows into the air above his head, and I lick my lips, trying to ignore the
burning need on my tongue. The problem with quitting smoking is it’s really
hard if you never fully quit.
His black hair, neatly combed back, shines under the flaming porch light,
and his blue eyes are turned toward the yard, watching something.
I follow his gaze.
Winter stands waist deep in the pool, her back to us as droplets pummel
the surface of the water and her hair sticks to her back.
I release a breath I didn’t realize I was holding. She’s here.
She raises her arms, gliding them through the evening rain as she steps to
the right, and then swings out her arms and steps to the left.
She’s dancing. She practices in the pool a lot for balance.
But then, I watch as she pulls all of her hair to one side, revealing her
naked back, and I drop my eyes down her spine to her naked waist and hips.
I dip my chin, my eyes going hot. She’s not wearing any clothes.
I move just my eyes, darting them over to Davis. He doesn’t blink, his
gaze staying on her.
