From the Author
"What's wrong with my car? It's front-wheel drive. Itusually goes well in the snow."
"Sure. But not if it bottoms out. The snow coming tonightwill make travel in anything but a vehicle sitting high off the groundimpossible."
Her eyes widened as he dragged her toward the house. "Ican't stay here. I just came for--" She struggled against him, but he easily gother going. Apparently, she wasn't the type of woman to strike out even in theface of danger, because she didn't try to hit him or anything. Just squirmed tobe free of his grip. To be contrary, he slipped his arm around her like he'dalways wanted to.
"I know what you came for. We'll discuss it over supper.I've got country ham, soup beans, and cornbread nearly ready. You can have mybed, and I'll bunk down on the couch, but you're not going anywhere until atleast tomorrow. It all depends on how much snow we get."
Once inside the house, Blake turned on lights, locking thedoor and switching on his security system. While he loved the simple life, somethings were necessary with people like Wesley around. The purpose of the alarmwasn't to notify the authorities; it didn't sound anywhere but here. It was toalert Blake to an intruder's presence, and to cover any noise Blake might makewhen stalking any bastard stupid enough to try to break in on him. Now, itwould serve to keep the lovely creature with him inside where she couldn't tryto navigate unfamiliar back roads in the pouring-down snow.
"You can't keep me here," she said, her voice trembling.
"Relax, sweetheart," he said with more sarcasm than he felt.He didn't want to scare her, though he knew the situation had to be frighteningfor her. "If I were going to hurt you, I'd have done so when I first spottedyou on my property. You'd never have known I was anywhere near until it was toolate." He turned to find her looking at him with wide, terrified eyes, her armsclutched tightly around her middle. With a sigh, he scrubbed a hand over hisface. "Look, really. Let me get you some supper. We'll discuss your situation,your needs, and what I can do for you." He winced at the double meaning, hopingshe didn't pick up on it or she'd likely bolt at the earliest opportunity.Alarm or no.
"How do I know I can trust you? You were always nice inschool, but my experience in town didn't exactly lead me to believe anyone inthis place would care one bit about what happened to a black woman poking hernose where it didn't belong."
Instantly, Blake's body stiffened. A killing rage seemed tosweep him up at the thought of what someone in that backward town had said ordone to her. He knew some of the locals. Knew their prejudices.
"Who." It wasn't so much a question as a demand.
"Does it matter? He actually did me a favor because I'm usuallyreally naive about such things. I tend to see people the way I want to seethem. Not how they really are. Kind of like now." Her gaze shifted aroundnervously. "I definitely shouldn't be here alone with you."
With a smirk, he couldn't resist saying, "A little too lateto do the right thing now, sweetheart." When her eyes widened in panic, helaughed, raising his hands in surrender. "I'm kidding. I may be country, butI'm not a complete asshole."
"Do you swear?"
Again, he couldn't resist. "All the damned time."
