People wanna talk to me, they talk to me proper, else they're likely to disappear. Now get the *** outta my place." "I think you've already worn out your welcome, Noah." At the sound of his voice, Noah spun around. Parker grinned up at him. "Record time, too." Noah gave Parker and his wheelchair a long, slow once-over. "She told me you were a cripple." Terry produced a baseball bat from beneath the bar. One of the regulars reached for the sheathed knife attached to his belt. Others merely glowered. "She told me you were a ***," Parker returned, keeping his smile in place. "But then I already knew that." Noah laughed. "Right back to our usual banter, aren't we? I didn't realize how much I'd missed it." 783 "Funny. I haven't missed it at all. Want a beer?" Noah glanced at Terry. "I think I'll pass." Parker motioned with his head for Noah to follow him outside. "I'll settle up with you later, Terry." "No problem." Every eye in the bar was on them as they left through the screen door and went out into the sweltering heat. "You've got nerve, Noah. I'll give you that." Noah scoffed. "Coming to see you?" "No. Going into Terry's bar wearing those loafers." He looked down at Noah's Gucci shoes with the gold trademark on the vamp. "Very fancy." Noah ignored the dig and slipped off his jacket. "Lovely climate," he said sarcastically. "Sorta reminiscent of Key West." Noah never faltered, but he didn't take the bait, either.

Considering all the pain and resentment

Considering all the pain and resentment, bitterness and anger that had been simmering inside him for the past fourteen years, perhaps he was capable of murder. To his mind, Noah had stolen the life he'd had planned for himself. Tit for tat. An eye for an eye. Noah's life for the one Noah had taken from him. Noah's life in exchange for Mary Catherine's. Now, _that she could easily believe. Parker might not kill for revenge, but he might for justice. He had liked that girl. He had regarded her as his friend and felt compassion for her. He would feel justified seeking vengeance for her death. She surged to her feet. "We've got to stop him." But at the door, she drew herself up short. She had panicked unnecessarily. Clasping her hands, she bowed her head over them as though in prayer. "Thank God." Turning 781 back around, she said to Mike, "We're not too late. Noah doesn't know that the writer I've been working with is Parker. He hasn't read _Envy." Mike dragged his hands down his face, groaning, "Oh, no." CHAPTER 35 Noah, fresh off a chartered boat from the mainland, entered Terry's Bar and Grill with a condescending attitude that immediately catapulted him to the top of the endangered species list. The locals disliked nonislanders in general, but they particularly disliked any who looked down their noses at them. They despised Noah Reed on sight. In fact, he might not have been allowed to tie up his boat at the dock if Parker hadn't spread word around that he was expecting a citified visitor from up north. If anybody spotted such a person, he was to be directed to Terry's, where Parker would be waiting. Noah approached the bar and addressed Terry with a rude, "Hey!" Terry, who happened to be uncapping a longneck at the time, sent the bottle of beer sliding down the bar toward one of his regulars, ignoring Noah. "Didn't you hear me?" Terry shifted a gnawed matchstick from one corner of his mouth to the other. "I heard ya. Karen Millen Outlet Karen Millen One Shoulder Karen Millen Skirts Karen Millen Dresses Tiffany Outlet

How could he be less passionate about vengeance

But I can understand it. Parker feels everything passionately or not at all. It's the only level of experience that makes sense to him. Otherwise, why bother? How could he be less passionate about vengeance? "He wanted Noah to experience at least twinges of the pain he had suffered because of him. He wanted Noah to know what it felt like to be deceived and betrayed to the nth degree. So Parker tricked you into coming to him. You both betrayed Noah by sleeping--was "Oh, my God!" She reached out and gripped Mike's sleeve. "I've just figured out his plot." 779 "His--was "_Plot. His ending." She wet her lips, spoke hurriedly. "Earlier, you quoted Noah from his videotaped deposition. He claimed that Parker had turned devious, lecherous, and ..." "Murderous," Mike finished, slapping his forehead. "Goddamn me for being so old and stupid. As many plots as I've analyzed, I should have realized where he was going. That's why he hasn't shared the last chapter with me." Maris rattled off her racing thoughts. "Parker's done everything Noah accused him of. Except--was She looked at Mike with alarm. "He couldn't," she said huskily "He wouldn't. I know he wouldn't." "I don't believe so, either." But neither sounded convinced. "He's not capable of it," she stressed. "I wouldn't have been attracted to him, wouldn't have--was "Loved him?" "For God's sake, Mike, I fell in love with the main character of _The _Vanquished. And transferred that love to the author. Look where that got me. I no longer trust my emotions. I believed that Parker at least cared for me. If I hadn't believed that, I wouldn't have slept with him. But maybe I'm wrong again. Maybe ..." She pressed her fist against her heart, recalling how cruel Parker had been that awful morning. Tiffany & Co Jewelry Tiffany Jewelry Tiffany & Co Bracelets Tiffany Outlet Karen Millen Outlet

his intellect and talent that appealed to her

It wasn't strictly his intellect and talent that appealed to her, as she had tried to delude herself into believing. She was attracted to him, the man. Countless times she had fantasized kissing him again, having his hands on her, having her mouth on him. She didn't even know if he was 485 capable of making love in the conventional sense, but it didn't matter. She wanted to touch him and to be touched. She wanted to be intimate with him on whatever level and by whatever means it could be achieved. While married she never would have acted on that desire. During her courtship and marriage, she had never looked at another man or thought of one in a sexual context, which had made her spontaneous attraction to Parker all the more disturbing. During her return flight to New York, she had convinced herself that the island was responsible for the romantic yearnings she had experienced there and that once she was back in familiar territory, they would stop. By the time the plane touched down at La Guardia, she had persuaded herself that the rift between her and Noah was curable, that the temporary lull in their marriage had left her open to fanciful daydreams that would vanish the moment their dozing passion was reawakened. She had talked herself into believing that with a little ingenuity on her part she could revive their love life and feel again the exhilaration and excitement she had when she left the church on Noah's arm as his bride. What a naive strategy that had been! It made her angry now that she had been willing to assume all the responsibility for their marriage being out of sorts.Tiffany & Co Jewelry Tiffany Jewelry Tiffany & Co Bracelets Tiffany Outlet Karen Millen Outlet

She had been terribly angry at Parker the morning she left

She had been terribly angry at Parker the morning she left, but the truth of the matter was she hadn't wanted to leave. She could admit that now. And every moment since her leaving, she had wanted to be with him again. Initially, guilt had burned inside her like a live coal. She was married. She had made a commitment at the wedding altar, and she had regarded it a lifetime pledge. All her marriage vows she had taken seriously. But apparently she had been the only one standing at the altar that day who had. Noah had broken his vows. For all she knew, Nadia wasn't the first woman with whom he had cheated. He had certainly had no shortage of girlfriends prior to his marriage. It was possible he had never changed his pattern of behavior from that of a bachelor to that of a married man. He had willfully chosen to be unfaithful to her. She would just as willfully choose to end the marriage. By taking a lover, he had squandered the right and the privilege to be her husband. But even if she hadn't caught him with Nadia, she would be leaving him. That night on the sidewalk in Chelsea, Noah had revealed an aspect of himself that appalled, repelled, and frightened her. She would not live another day with a man who hinted at violence so effectively that she believed him capable of it. Their marriage was over. Noah Reed was her past. What she needed to determine was if Parker Evans was her future. She could no longer ignore or deny her attraction to him.

As he lined up the edges and stacked the pages

As he lined up the edges and stacked the pages, he said, "That's all you've got so far?" Maris nodded. "I haven't received anything from him since I returned. I've called several times to give him a pep talk, but I've spoken only to Mike, his aide. According to him, P ... the author isn't writing much these days." "I wonder why." "He's sulking." "His muse has flown." "Nothing that mystical. He's being his stubborn and mule-headed self. Like any mule, he requires prodding." She hesitated before adding, "So I'm going back." "Really? When?" "I'm on my way to the airport now." "I see." "I only stopped by to check on you, tell you good-bye, and to hear your opinion of what you've read so far." She had postponed her departure for a week. After catching Noah in Nadia Schuller's apartment, it was a foregone conclusion that she would return to Georgia and see Parker again. Her husband's affair had given her a green light to examine her ambiguous and conflicting feelings for Parker. But in order to be 483 fair to him, and to herself, she had delayed going until she had thought it through from every angle. She didn't want her return to be a knee-jerk reaction to a rapid series of shocking developments in her life. She didn't want it to be the reaction of an angry and vindictive wife. Rather, she wanted it to be an action taken after days of careful consideration. For the past seven days, she had thought of little else.

the Portuguese pimple on the face of Mother India

And Mary's confession faded until, because nobody spoke of it, it came to feel like a bad dream; to everyone except'me. And (without any assistance from me) relations between India and Pakistan grew worse; entirely without my help, India conquered Goa - 'the Portuguese pimple on the face of Mother India'; I sat on the sidelines and played no part in the acquisition of large-scale U.S. aid for Pakistan, nor was I to blame for Sino-India border skirmishes in the Aksai Chin region of Ladakh; the Indian census of 1961 revealed a literacy level of 23.7 per cent, but I was not entered in its records. The untouchable problem remained acute; I did nothing to alleviate it; and in the elections of 1962, the All-India Congress won 361 out of 494 seats in the Lok Sabha, and over 61 per cent of all State Assembly seats. Not even in this could my unseen hand be said to have moved; except, perhaps, metaphorically: the status quo was preserved in India; in my life, nothing changed either. Then, on September 1st, 1962, we celebrated the Monkey's fourteenth birthday. By this time (and despite my uncle's continued fondness for me) we were well-established as social inferiors, the hapless poor relations of the great Zulfikars; so the party was a skimpy affair. The Monkey, however, gave every appearance of enjoying herself. 'It's my duty, brother,' she told me. I could hardly believe my ears ... but perhaps my sister had an intuition of her fate; perhaps she knew the transformation which lay in store for her; why should I assume that I alone have had the powers of secret knowledge?

once so rebellious and wild

Four years of nothing. Except growing into a teenager. Except watching my mother as she fell apart. Except observing the Monkey, who was a crucial year younger than me, fall under the insidious spell of that God-ridden country; the Monkey, once so rebellious and wild, adopting expressions of demureness and submission which must, at first, have seemed false even to her; the Monkey, learning how to cook and keep house, how to buy spices in the market; the Monkey, making the final break with the legacy of her grandfather, by learning prayers in Arabic and saying them at all prescribed times; the Monkey, revealing the streak of puritan fanaticism which she had hinted at when she asked for a nun's outfit; she, who spurned all offers of worldly love, was seduced by the love of that God who had been named after a carved idol in a pagan shrine built around a giant meteorite: Al-Lah, in the Qa'aba, the shrine of the great Black Stone. But nothing else. Four years away from the midnight children; four years without Warden Road and Breach Candy and Scandal Point and the lures of One Yard of Chocolates; away from the Cathedral School and the equestrian statue of Sivaji and melon-sellers at the Gateway of India: away from Divali and Ganesh Chaturthi and Coconut Day; four years of separation from a father who sat alone in a house he would not sell; alone, except for Professor Schaapsteker, who stayed in his apartment and shunned the company of men. Can nothing really happen for four years? Obviously, not quite. My cousin Zafar, who had never been forgiven by his father for wetting his pants in the presence of history, was given to understand that he would be joining the Army as soon as he was of age. 'I want to see you prove you're not a woman,' his father told him. And Bonzo died; General Zulfikar shed manly tears.Karen Millen Outlet Karen Millen Dresses Karen Millen Dresses Outlet Karen Millen One Shoulder louis vuitton For Women

And gun-barrel pushed between the cheeks of an overfed rump

He looks like a white Laughing Buddha; but not laughing. Shivering. My uncle's pistol is extracted from his mouth. 'Turn. Quick march!' ... And gun-barrel pushed between the cheeks of an overfed rump. The man cries, 'For God's sake be careful; that thing has the safety off!' Jawans giggle as naked flesh emerges into moonlight, is pushed into black limousine ... That night, I sat with a naked man as my uncle drove him to a military airfield; I stood and watched as the waiting aircraft taxied, accelerated, flew. What began, active-metaphorically, with pepperpots, ended then; not only did I overthrow a government - I also consigned a president to exile. Midnight has many children; the offspring of Independence were not all human. Violence, corruption, poverty, generals, chaos, greed and pepperpots ... I had to go into exile to learn that the children of midnight were more varied than I - even I - had dreamed. 'Really truly?' Padma asks. 'You were truly there?' Really truly. 'They say that Ayub was a good man before he became bad,' Padma says; it is a question. But Saleem, at eleven, made no such judgments. The movement of pepperpots does not necessitate moral choices. What Saleem was concerned with: not public upheaval, but personal rehabilitation. You see the paradox - my most crucial foray into history up to that moment was inspired by the most parochial of motives. Anyway, it was not 'my' country - or not then. Not my country, although I stayed in it - as refugee, not citizen; entered on my mother's Indian passport, I would have come in for a good deal of suspicion, maybe even deported or arrested as a spy, had it not been for my tender years and the power of my guardian with the Punch-like features - for four long years.

She raised her head

If I had touched you, I wouldn't have been able to stop. I would have had to touch your breasts. Kiss them. You know where it would have gone from there." His fingers moved down to the next button. He toyed with it and when she made no move to halt him, he undid it. Then the next. The next. Her flowery scent wafted up to him as he pushed aside the fabric so his hand could slip inside. His eyes closed in an agony of pleasure as his palm found her skin as warm and smooth and alive as he had imagined it. He cupped the firm globe of her breast. It filled his hand. His fingers flexed in a gentle kneading motion. "Kari, Kari," he groaned. "You 256 SWEET ANGER feel beautiful." His hand moved to her other breast and treated it to the same loving caress. His thumb tenderly finessed her nipple. It beaded in response and he murmured endearments against her neck. When the peak grew pebble-hard, he rolled it between his finger and thumb, then fanned it lightly with his fingertips. A small weeping sound brought his eyes open. He was alarmed to see a tear rolling down her cheek. His hand stilled instantly. "Kari? What's wrong? Am I hurting you?" "No," she whispered, leaving her face buried in the crease of his elbow. "Are you insulted? I swear --was "No." "Then, what is it? Why are you crying? Do you want me to stop?" She raised her head. Her eyes were luminous with tears. "That's just it. I don't want you to stop. It feels wonderful." She shuddered. Longchamp Outlet Longchamp Hobo Bags Longchamp Le Pliage Travel Longchamp Le Pliage Medium louis vuitton For Women

Don't think at all

"And I don't know what to think about that." He moved like summer lightning. Kneeling before her, he caught her head between his hands and pulled her mouth to within a breath of his. "Then, don't think about 257 SWEET ANGER it. Don't think at all." Chapter Ten His mouth took hers hungrily. There was no preliminary persuasion to this kiss. It was rampant and wild from the beginning. Her lips didn't hesitate to obey the probing of his tongue. It slid deeply into the sweet channel of her mouth. Kari's senses had been awakened by his fondling. Now they responded to his unbridled passion. Guilt, reservations, and ambiguities were banished. They surrendered to the all-consuming heat of his kiss. Her mind no longer ruled; she was being governed solely by her senses. Hunter lowered them to the ground, his mouth never leaving hers. His arms went around her with such fierce possession, she doubted he would ever let her go. At the moment, she didn't care if he ever did. He pressed her down into the thick carpet of grass, then, holding her tightly against him, rolled her on top of him. Her knee landed between his legs. His hard, lean thighs tightened around it and pressed it against his loins. She rubbed her knee against him. 258 SWEET ANGER "Oh, God, Kari," he hissed. "I've wanted you so long." He turned them again until she was on her back and he was angled over half her body. The restraint he had imposed on himself for months was lifted. He had wanted her from the first time he saw her. Now he would have her. He lowered his head for another deep kiss. Her mouth gave and took as freely as his. Working his hand between their bodies, he untied the sleeves of the sweater from around her waist. After he had pulled her shirt from her waistband, he spread it open. He relinquished her lips to raise his head and gaze down at her. Dappled sunlight danced erotically across her breasts, highlighting and shadowing in playful patterns.

His eyes devoured her greedily

She looked like a work of art, only better, because she was living and breathing, whispering his name, reaching for him. His eyes devoured her greedily. But he had to touch her or die. He laid his hands on her breasts. He marveled at the texture of her skin, the softness of the curves, the delicacy of her nipples. "You're so beautiful." He gathered the 259 SWEET ANGER fullness of one breast in his hand and pushed it up. Gently he stroked the coral tip with his thumb, drawing slow, repetitive circles over it. Its response was beautiful to watch. "Ah, look at you." With his free hand, he yanked his shirt from his waistband and opened it. Gradually he lowered his bare chest over her, pressing her breast against him. "Hunter," Kari groaned softly. "Oh, that feels good." His chest hair felt crisp against her flushed nipples. She rubbed herself against the lush mat, reveling in a million sensations she had never known were available to her. She could feel the steely strength of his muscles beneath his warm, vibrant skin. Her hands closed around the back of his neck as he lifted himself over her, dipped his head, and kissed her breasts. At first his touch was tentative. His lips sipped at her skin. His tongue tasted. But it wasn't nearly enough. He kissed her fervently, drawing more of her breast into his mouth and massaging the peak with his tongue. His head moved from side to side. Then down. 260 SWEET ANGER With ardent lips, he tracked the shallow groove that divided her stomach. His lips were hot; his tongue was bold; together they left a damp trail along her skin that made her writhe in an orgy of sensations. Unsnapping her shorts, he found her navel and kissed it wantonly. He inched down her body until his shoulders were propped between her thighs, his legs stretched out between hers.

The world as discovered from a broken-down clocktower

The world as discovered from a broken-down clocktower: at first, I was no more than a tourist, a child peeping through the miraculous peepholes of a private 'Dilli-dekho' machine. Dugdugee-drums rattled in my left (damaged) ear as I gained my first glimpse of the Taj Mahal through the eyes of a fat Englishwoman suffering from the tummy-runs; after which, to balance south against north, I hopped down to Madurai's Meenakshi temple and nestled amongst the woolly, mystical perceptions of a chanting priest. I toured Connaught Place in New Delhi in the guise of an auto-rickshaw driver, complaining bitterly to my fares about the rising price of gasoline; in Calcutta I slept rough in a section of drainpipe. By now thoroughly bitten by the travel bug, I zipped down to Cape Comorin and became a fisher-woman whose sari was as tight as her morals were loose ... standing on red sands washed by three seas, I flirted with Dravidian beachcombers in a language I couldn't understand; then up into the Himalayas, into the neanderthal moss-covered hut of a Goojar tribal, beneath the glory of a completely circular rainbow and the tumbling moraine of the Kolahoi glacier. At the golden fortress of Jaisalmer I sampled the inner life of a woman making mirrorwork dresses and at Khajuraho I was an adolescent village boy, deeply embarrassed by the erotic, Tahtric carvings on the Chandela temples standing in the fields, but unable to tear away my eyes ... in the exotic simplicities of travel I was able to find a modicum of peace. But, in the end, tourism ceased to satisfy; curiosity began to niggle; 'Let's find out,' I told myself, 'what really goes on around here.' With the eclectic spirit of my nine years spurring me on, I leaped into the heads of film stars and cricketers - I learned the truth behind the Filmfare gossip about the dancer Vyjayantimala, and I was at the crease with Polly Umrigar at the Brabourne Stadium; I was Lata Mangeshkar the playback singer and Bubu the clown at the circus behind Civil Lines ... and inevitably, through the ramdom processes of my mind-hopping, I discovered politics.Longchamp Outlet Longchamp Hobo Bags Longchamp Le Pliage Travel Longchamp Le Pliage Medium louis vuitton For Women

so that we all ran away

What stood on the flat roof of the Breach Candy Kindergarten - a roof, you will recall, which could be reached from the garden of Buckingham Villa, simply by climbing over a boundary wall? What, no longer capable of performing the function for which it was designed, watched over us that year when even the winter forgot to cool down - what observed Sonny Ibrahim, Eyeslice, Hairoil, and myself, as we played kabaddi, and French Cricket, and seven-tiles, with the occasional participation of Cyrus-the-great and of other, visiting friends: Fat Perce Fishwala and Glandy Keith Colaco? What was present on the frequent occasions when Toxy Catrack's nurse Bi-Appah yelled down from the top floor of Homi's home: 'Brats! Rackety good-for-nothings! Shut your noise!' ... so that we all ran away, returning (when she vanished from our sight) to make mute faces at the window at which she'd stood? In short, what was it, tall and blue and flaking, which oversaw our lives, which seemed, for a while, to be marking time, waiting not only for the nearby time when we would put on long trousers, but also, perhaps, for the coming of Evie Burns? Perhaps you'd like clues: what had once hidden bombs? In what had Joseph D'Costa died of snake-bite? ... When, after some months of inner torment, I at last sought refuge from grown-up voices, I found it in an old clocktower, which nobody bothered to lock; and here, in the solitude of rusting time, I paradoxically took my first tentative steps towards that involvement with mighty events and public lives from which I would never again be free ... never, until the Widow ... Banned from washing-chests, I began, whenever possible, to creep unobserved into the tower of crippled hours. When the circus-ring was emptied by heat or chance or prying eyes; when Ahmed and Amina went off to the Willingdon Club for canasta evenings; when the Brass Monkey was away, hanging around her newly-acquired heroines, the Walsingham School for Girls' swimming and diving team ... that is to say, when circumstances permitted, I entered my secret hideout, stretched out on the straw mat I'd stolen from the servants' quarters, closed my eyes, and let my newly-awakened inner ear (connected, like all ears, to my nose) rove freely around the city - and further, north and south, east and west - listening in to all manner of things. To escape the intolerable pressures of eavesdropping on people I knew, I practised my art upon strangers. Thus my entry into public affairs of India occurred for entirely ignoble reasons - upset by too much intimacy, I used the world outside our hillock for light relief.

That is to say

To end this account of the early days of my transformed life, I must add one painful confession: it occurred to me that I could improve my parents' opinion of me by using my new faculty to help out with my schoolwork - in short, I began to cheat in class. That is to say, I tuned in to the inner voices of my schoolteachers and also of my cleverer classmates, and picked information out of their minds. I found that very few of my masters could set a test without rehearsing the ideal answers in their minds - and I knew, too, that on those rare occasions when the teacher was preoccupied by other things, his private love-life or financial difficulties, the solutions could always be found in the precocious, prodigious mind of our class genius, Cyrus-the-great. My marks began to improve dramatically - but not overly so, because I took care to make my versions different from their stolen originals; even when I telepathi-cally cribbed an entire English essay from Cyrus, I added a number of mediocre touches of my own. My purpose was to avoid suspicion; I did not, but I escaped discovery. Under Emil Zagallo's furious, interrogating eyes I remained innocently seraphic; beneath the bemused, head-shaking perplexity of Mr Tandon the English master I worked my treachery in silence - knowing that they would not believe the truth even if, by chance or folly, I spilled the beans. Let me sum up: at a crucial point in the history of our child-nation, at a time when Five Year Plans were being drawn up and elections were approaching and language marchers were fighting over Bombay, a nine-year-old boy named Saleem Sinai acquired a miraculous gift. Despite the many vital uses to which his abilities could have been put by his impoverished, underdeveloped country, he chose to conceal his talents, frittering them away on inconsequential voyeurism and petty cheating. This behaviour - not, I confess, the behaviour of a hero - was the direct result of a confusion in his mind, which invariably muddled up morality - the desire to do what is right - and popularity - the rather more dubious desire to do what is approved of. Fearing parental ostracism, he suppressed the news of his transformation; seeking parental congratulations, he abused his talents at school. This flaw in his character can partially be excused on the grounds of his tender years; but only partially. Confused thinking was to bedevil much of his career. I can be quite tough in my self-judgements when I choose.Tiffany & Co Outlet Tiffany & Co Bracelets Tiffany & Co Necklaces Tiffany Bangles louis vuitton For Women

I have a warrant for your arrest

She had parted the curtains and was looking through the window over the sink at the approaching patrol car. 'I didn't,' Lucky said. 'I thought we were going to wait until after lunch, Chase.' 'So did I. I didn't call him.' Chase left his chair and moved to stand beside his mother at the window. 'He's alone. The agents aren't with him.' He had the back door opened before Pat even reached it. The sheriff stepped into the kitchen and removed his hat and sunglasses. 'Hi, everybody.' Nodding down at the table, he added, 'Sorry to interrupt your lunch.' 'Please join us, Pat,' Laurie said. 'There's plenty.' 'I can't, but thanks.' 'Something to drink?' 'Nothing, thanks.' So far Pat had avoided looking at any of them directly and was uneasily shifting his weight from one foot to the other while restlessly moving his fingers around the brim of his hat -- dead giveaways that this wasn't a social call. Lucky pushed aside his unfinished plate and stood up. 'What is it, Pat?' Pat Bush looked at him with a beleaguered expression. He removed a folded document from the breast pocket of his uniform shirt. 'I have a warrant for your arrest.' Sage and Tanya gasped. Laurie raised a hand to her chest as though someone had just wounded her. Devon's pale lips parted in surprise. Chase's reaction was volatile. He exclaimed, 'What the hell?' Lucky snatched the document from the sheriff, scanned it, then tossed it down onto the table. He muttered words his mother wouldn't normally have allowed spoken in her house. 'I have an alibi,' he told Pat, pointing down at Devon. 'So I see. Ma'am.' After acknowledging her, Pat looked back at Lucky. 'Once a warrant has been issued, I haven't got a choice. You'll have to come with me now. Chase can bring the lady in when they start to question you. It'll all be cleared up soon.' 'Does he have to be placed under arrest?' Laurie asked. 'I'm sorry about it, Laurie, but, yeah, he does. He can finish his lunch though. I'm in no hurry to get back to town.' 'Well, I'm in a hurry to get this mess over with. Let's go.' Lucky stamped toward the door. Pat caught his arm. 'We've got to do this by the book. I've got to Mirandize you.'

Pat read him his rights

'Fine,' Lucky said tautly. 'But can we go outside? I don't want my mother to have to listen.' 'Don't patronize me, James Lawrence,' she said sharply. 'I'm not a shrinking violet who needs protection from anything unpleasant. I fought your daddy's cancer for two years before losing him to it. I'm unwilling to give up another member of my family just now, so if they want a fight, they'll get one,' she said staunchly. 'Way to go, Mother,' said Sage, looking just as determined as Laurie. Lucky winked at his mother. 'Fix something good for supper, because I'll be home way before then.' He went through the back door. Pat doffed his hat to the ladies and followed him out. Pat read him his rights. 'Hate like hell having to do this,' he mumbled as he clamped the handcuffs around Lucky's wrists. 'Just do it and stop apologizing for it. I understand. It's your duty.' 'I'm doubly glad you've got the woman.' 'Why?' Lucky asked as he ducked his head and climbed into the backseat of the patrol car. Pat's grim tone of voice sounded discouraging and made him uneasy. 'Cause they've got Susan Young, and she, my friend, is saying you did it.' One had to admire Devon's composure as she entered the interrogation room. The two federal agents smoked like chimneys, so the small room was filled with smoke. She was like a breath of fresh air as she entered with Pat. He directed her to a chair; she sat down without compromising her straight, proud posture. Lucky tried to catch her eye and give her an encouraging nod, but she didn't even glance in his direction. Instead, she gave the agent her undivided attention. Once the pleasantries were out of the way, he got down to business. 'Mr. Tyler claims that he was with you the night his building burned to the ground.' Her green stare was cool and steady. 'That's right. He was.' Pat sat down on a corner of the table in front of her. In a far less intimidating voice he said, 'Tell us how and when you two met.' 'As you know, Sheriff Bush, we met that same afternoon in a lounge on Highway Two Seventy-seven.' A frown wrinkled her brow. 'I'm not sure about the name.' 'It doesn't have a name,' Pat said. 'Oh.

Calmly Devon told them about going into the place to do research on her article on sexism

Then I guess that's why I don't remember it.' 'Just tell us what happened,' one of the agents interjected impatiently as he lit another cigarette. Calmly Devon told them about going into the place to do research on her article on sexism. She admitted that it wasn't wise. 'However, I was being as unobtrusive as possible. With absolutely no encouragement from me, two men approached my table and offered to buy me a drink. They refused to take no for an answer.' Her eyes suddenly connected with Lucky's. Inadvertently she had used the phrase that they had frequently batted back and forth. He figured that everybody in the room could hear the sizzle of the current that arced between them. Devon quickly averted her head. She told the rest of the story, perfectly corroborating Pat's and his own account. She verbally led the investigators into the motel room. 'I opened my door to Mr. Tyler because he was hurt.' That was a slight distortion of fact, but only he could testify otherwise, and he wasn't going to. 'I tended to his wounds,' she said. 'He was in no condition to drive, so he ... he stayed there with me all night, and was there when I left the following morning, which was around six o'clock.' Lucky looked up at his two accusers and gave them a gloating smile. 'Now, can we cut the rest of this crap?' They ignored him. One motioned Pat off the corner of the table and assumed that position directly in front of Devon. 'Are you a licensed physician, Ms. Haines?' 'What the -- ' Devon overrode Lucky's angry exclamation. 'Of course not.' 'But you felt qualified to take care of a knife wound and a black eye that, by all accounts, came close to blinding him?' 'On the contrary, I didn't feel qualified at all. I advised Mr. Tyler to go to a hospital, but he refused.' 'How come?' 'You'll have to ask him.' 'I did,' the agent replied, frowning. 'He, in turn, asked me, given the choice, would I rather spend the night in a hospital emergency room or with you.' Through the pall of tobacco smoke, she gave Lucky an injured, inquisitive, incredulous look. 'It was a joke, Devon. A joke.' Paler than she had been only moments before, she turned back to the agent. 'I was only concerned about Mr. Tyler's injuries/ she said quietly. 'He'd received those injuries while protecting me, so I felt somewhat responsible.Tiffany & Co Outlet Tiffany & Co Bracelets Tiffany & Co Necklaces Tiffany Bangles louis vuitton For Women
