Chapter 19

Jeremy scratched his ear in silence for a moment. “I don’t know,” he finally muttered, “I guess I’ll have to talk to her again.”

“That didn’t work very well before,” Remy said.

He turned and stared at her. “What do you think I should do?”

What did she think? This was her problem? “I have no idea. No, wait- you could get a restraining order, I suppose.”

Jeremy brightened. “Hey, that’s good, right, I will.” [Read more…]

Chapter 18

Remy shifted uncomfortably, not exactly sure what she should say to Jeremy. The explanation he had given her about his mother being ill made all the sense in the world to her. She could hardly fault him for acting badly in that situation, though she wished the episode hadn’t been so downright threatening.

Still, she hesitated. Remy was willing to let Jeremy have his say, but she wasn’t about to open herself up to a dangerous situation. He watched her patiently as she struggled to find the right words. Rather than opening the door, she pulled the key back out of the lock and motioned towards the step as she sat, inviting him to sit with her.

“We should talk,” Jeremy said. “I’ve wanted to talk to you for a while now – about what happened that day when Barbara showed up…?” He trailed off, posing his statement as a question, checking to see if she remembered. As if she could forget. [Read more…]

Chapter 17

Remy slammed the car door with more force than she had intended. Drat that Irene. Who does she think she is?

Before she had time to ponder more on her co-worker, she glimpsed a flash of blonde rush into the complex and couldn’t help but notice the protruding belly.

“Jeepers, she’s sure showing,” Remy mumbled. “Where did that come from?”Well, that was a stupid question, she thought. From Jeremy, of course.

Granted, Remy hadn’t seen Barbara f [Read more…]

Chapter 16

Somehow Remy survived the following week at work, surprised by mundane, non-events. Sam, other than filling her in on the phone calls he’d tried to trace, acted like nothing had happened between them. Even Jeremy seemed to be on his best behavior. Mostly, he was non-existent. They passed each other once on the street, but he looked quickly away. Remy wasn’t sure if it was out of embarrassment, hatred or ambivalence. Perhaps a bit of all three.

Irene was her usual snarky self. Remy didn’t know Irene well, but wondered about her private life, which seemed almost too private. She knew she was divorced, but thought she had mentioned a casual boyfriend. They had worked together for almost six months; one would think she’d have shared more of herself within that period. Irene had been hired shortly after Remy, but acted like she had seniority. Remy tried to not let her actions bother her. If Irene wanted to run the office, that was fine with her. A few days one way or the other didn’t give one employee seniority over the other, Remy reasoned. Dr. Kendrick had never actually elaborated on who had seniority, and Remy just assumed responsibilities would be shared. Mostly they were, but sometimes Irene rode her high horse. [Read more…]
