(Rock Point #4)
by Freya Barker
“You going for coffee?”
I stop outside Damian’s office and stick my head around the door.
“Yeah, you want anything?” I ask him.
“Come in for a minute, and close the door.”
I do ask he asks, and sit down across from his desk. “What’s up?”
“That’s three times this week.”
His face is impassive but his eyes are keen, so I don’t even bother pretending not to know what he’s talking about. My hackles are up.
“My wife is her friend.”
Damian leans forward, elbows on his desk. “Right. I see you’re not in the mood to listen, but I’m going to say this anyway. I’m not sure what it is you think you’re doing, and I know you weren’t around when things went down with her, but we’re talking about a woman who has been played and knocked around enough.”
I can feel my nostrils flare when I release the breath I’ve been holding, along with my temper. I match Damian leaning forward over his desk, getting in his face and measuring my words. “When have you known me to toy with a woman? Any woman? Ever?”
It takes a moment for the fierce intensity to leave my boss’s face. He sits back in his chair and runs a hand through his hair. “Jesus, kid.”
That term rubs me the wrong way. “Hardly a kid,” I bite off. “Old enough to know what I want.”
“She’s a single mom in her early forties with at least ten years on you.”
“Eight, to be exact,” I correct him. “And for the record; I’m a single parent too.”
Another brush of his hand goes through the hair streaked with silver. “Shit.” His eyes come up. “You mess with her, hurt her in anyway, that’s going to make my wife very unhappy, which in turn will make me extremely unhappy.”
“So noted. Now, if that was all?” Pissed, I shove the chair back and get up, swallowing down my anger.
“Yeah,” he mumbles, but when I start walking out of the office he stops me, adding, “Large Americano—black—and grab me one of those brownies if she has any left.”
