From Chapter Two


Alace Sweets

“Is everything okay?”

She crossed the distance between them and leaned in so Nate could kiss her

forehead, something she’d noted he liked doing. She let him wrap an arm around

her shoulders, drawing her close to his side before he turned so they faced Ike.


“Nothing to worry about,

baby girl.” Nate’s voice dropped into the lower registers, and she shivered at

a sudden memory. That was how he’d sounded just before he buried his face

between her legs last night, finding that delicate balance of aggressive

licking and kissing, and a fragile tenderness that had been missing from her

life for a long time. I’ll miss you, big guy.




“Hey, Ike.” She

offered a little wave with the hand not currently tucked into Nate’s back

pocket. From the outside, it probably looked like they were a longtime couple,

only Nate would know that before last night all he’d gotten access to were her

forehead and fingers. She’d gently rebuffed all his overtures while keeping the

door open for use when it mattered most. Like last night, she thought, keeping

the smile on her face small. “What’s up?”



“Hey, Pauline. Sorry to

bother you and Nate.” Ike gestured towards the front room, and Nate led her

towards the couch there. “I got some bad news, honey.” Tipping her head to one

side, she settled next to Nate, letting him hold her close. She rested one palm

on his thick thigh, allowing her fingers to curve possessively around it. “Alan

Trueward, how well did…do you know him?”



Well, hell. They found

him already.


She carefully didn’t let

any of her thoughts show on her face. Stoicism was something she had long

practiced, really since her first breath, if she were honest. All through her youth

growing up in that tiny town, she’d had to hide everything inside her. All the

pain and anger, the fear and loss. Getting out of bed in the morning meant

sliding that particular mask into place, and she was so good at it now it was

first nature, bypassing that second nature bullshit normal people lived with.


“Decent guy, he takes

care of the girls.” She purposely let her smile broaden slightly. “He and

April—” Alace tipped her head so she was grinning up at Nate. “—are quite the

item.” Fraternization between employees at the club was frowned on, but Nate

hadn’t told them to stop, which meant he probably didn’t know the reason behind

it in the first place. Alace did. Alan was the entire reason she was in town,

after all. Regg had sussed him out nearly two years ago, and she’d started

laying plans. It’s what she did these days.


“Did you see Alan last




Boy did I ever! I saw

him on his knees calling out to a god who didn’t give one shit that the man was

about to die.

Just like Alan didn’t give one shit about those little girls he liked to rub

off on when he was a teacher. Just like that judge didn’t give a shit about

those little girls, giving Alan a commuted sentence because he “had such future

contributions to give to society” and ignored his existing contributions to

eleven little girls’ nightmares. Eleven future husbands who would have their

hands full considering the woman made for them had been so abused. Alace firmly

believed that every person had their one true love, and she just as firmly

believed that Alan Trueward did not exist in that column for any woman, or man.

God couldn’t be that cruel.



Yeah, I saw him. Saw him

kneel. Saw him fall. Kicked dirt over his blood and shoveled it into the well

after him. Saw the blade rise and fall, a glittering promise in every stroke

seeing that taking Alan’s life was actually giving him peace, too. I promised

him he’d never feel those urges again. His voice begging, pleading loudly, “I’m

sick. I know. It’s a sickness.” He was sick, all right. Sick to death.
