Caleb and I were done keeping secrets from each other. Everything needed to be resolved before his trial; first and foremost, the depth of deceit we’d failed to unravel. The stakes were higher. And as our past, present, and future collided, we should be on the same page. But what if I knew something that would destroy him, and us?
I would do anything for him. Anything for us.
My father was a liar, a manipulator, a killer. He was—me. Only, the longer I’d been away from him, the more those broken pieces of myself had been gravitating back together. Because the mind was a powerful thing. And love—was a weakness. A strength. A four-letter word for loyalty. Where was mine? Not in the hands of the man who’d made me this way. So I didn’t have to wonder what would be the worst thing that could ever happen to me. Instead I wondered, could I stop it?
My eyes followed Paige through the mirror as she walked over to the weight rack. I knew keeping her included in everything that went down was the only way to prevent her from taking off again, trying to do it on her own.
She stopped by the five-pound weights, wistfully dragging her fingers over them before picking up one in each hand.
My eyebrows arched. “What are you doing?”
“It’s been a month. My arms are weak. I just need to”—she bit her lip as she curled first one, then the other dumbbell—“work them out a little.”
I walked up to her and plucked the weights out of her hands and set them back on the rack. “This isn’t starting slow. Two-pound weights are. Better yet, you don’t even need weights.” I touched her stomach. “You were a personal trainer. You know to use your core even when you’re only doing curls. With the added weight, it’ll be too much stress on your stomach.”
“I’ve been doing some wall pushups and a few other exercises this week from the printouts, you know that. But, it’s not enough.”
I bent and retrieved my weights from the floor and set them on the rack. “We have to go anyway. That was Stuart. We’re meeting up with him and Langley.” My arm dropped around her shoulders as I guided her to the door.
“You know, being my boyfriend doesn’t give you the right to tell me what to do.”
I chuckled. “I still know what’s best for you right now. But if you really want to work out your arms, I could think of a few ways. Massaging my back. Rubbing my—”
The door to the gym opened, and one of the guards stood there.
Lowering my head, I whispered in her ear, “Cock.”
Over the past few days, she’d started to do this thing where she casually cupped my dick and balls while we were watching TV in our room, and it was driving me fucking nuts, along with the fact that I got embarrassingly hard every time she touched me. Like I was getting this second.
“You suck,” she murmured, and I peered down to see she was smiling.
“No. You suck.” She didn’t need to see the desire in my eyes to know where my mind was.
“Maybe I will.” She looked up, and my eyes narrowed as we continued out the door and down the hall. As of late, it had been impossible to converse without innuendos, and this pent-up need to fuck her was making me fear the moment I finally did. Hard, possessive. Caveman style, I was sure. But I knew her body wasn’t ready for that.
“What am I going to do with that mouth?” I muttered under my breath.
“I have a few ideas,” she said as a matter-of-factly.
I laughed. “Tell me. Later. In detail.” My hand circled around the nape of her neck, and I caressed. “I would love to hear them.”
