Morningview Court, Brentwood
This had been an enormous error.
She shouldn’t have permitted the indulgence.
She should have been stronger. Need was weakness. No one knew this
better than her. Trusting him had been a mistake.
She smiled. Well, perhaps she had not really trusted him. She’d spent so
much time “in character” lately that at times it was difficult to step back.
Actually, all had gone entirely according to plan.
Now it was time to finish this.
It was him or her, and it was not going to be her.
She smiled again. It was always going to be him.
Self-preservation was something she had learned at an early age. In this
instance, outwitting him had not been so complicated. He was a mere man,
after all. A cheater, a thief, the sort that thought only of himself when the
chips were down.
She hadn’t expected more from him.
The sound of water spewing from the dozen or so body sprayers in the
shower abruptly stopped, leaving only the soft music from his chosen playlist
and the knowledge of what must be done.
She waited and watched. Patience was essential at this pivotal moment.
From her position near the door, she observed him stepping from the shower,
droplets sliding over contoured muscle and slipping down tanned flesh. He
reached for the towel, wiped his eyes and face first, then started the
methodical ritual of smoothing the thick cotton over his body.
He adored his body. Was completely absorbed in admiring himself as
he swept the towel over his skin. So much so he didn’t even notice her
approach. Never sensed her presence. A tragic lapse in judgment.
She was quite close behind him before he recognized her presence.
Likely noticed her scent. Every woman possessed a unique scent, whether she
chose to wear perfume or not. A man—especially a man who had been with
her—recognized her scent.
She drew back her chosen weapon like a baseball bat as he turned,
surprise marring his handsome face. She swung the weapon with all her
might, twisting through her hips and driving hard into her target.
