Ripper's TormentBy: Sam Crescent
Mia giggled. “She’s with a man.” She shook her head, placing her palm on his arm. “Don’t worry about it. I can see Ashley when she’s free.”
“How on earth are you two friends?” he asked.
Her smile dropped as sadness filled her eyes. “We’ve always got each other’s backs. She’s there when I need her to be.”
He noticed her hands started to shake.
Suspicion filled him at her reaction. After many years of having to deal with guilty men, he knew the signs.
“Let me know when you’re hungry. I’ll bring you some food.”
She left him alone as Ripper and Judi joined him.
The two lovebirds made him feel sick. At least Judi wasn’t pregnant and temperamental. She was a sweet thing.
Picking up his coffee, he drowned out the conversation watching the curvy woman who’d been invading his thoughts. He wanted to know all of her secrets, and he was going to find them out.
