Chapter 33

“Oh,” Remy murmured. It was the strangest thing- his “idea” was no surprise, given the expression on his face and her present homeless dilemma, but now that he’d effectively asked her to move in her stomach churned with uncertainty and nerves. How could she move in with a guy she barely knew? Her mother would be horrified.

“What’s wrong?” he asked.

“You want me to live with you?”

“That’s my thought.” He grinned. “I’ll need a nursemaid for a while with this leg.” [Read more…]

Chapter 32

Sam stood up from the wheelchair, using Remy’s arm for support. He rose to his feet, his arm around Remy’s shoulder to take the weight off his thigh. As the doctors warned him, the bullet wound would ache for months. But Remy’s body was warm against his, making him forget his pain. Sam smiled back graciously at the nurse who had wheeled him to the curb, hoping the gesture would dismiss her. He didn’t like being pampered even though he knew it was hospital policy. Remy handed him the crutch, and he stuck it under his arm and looked to Remy’s car, just a few steps away. He turned back, but the nurse was still standing there, smiling. He wanted her to leave. He wanted to be alone with Remy.

“Here you go,” Remy said, putting an arm around Sam’s waist to guide him toward the passenger seat. [Read more…]

Chapter 31

Remy immediately froze where she was, her eyes locked on Barbara.

Sam, ever ready to take control of a situation, started to speak. “Barbara, Remy had nothing to do with Jeremy’s arrest.” As he spoke, he took a step over to try to block Remy from Barbara’s view.

Barbara was crazed, eyes wide. She raised the gun to Sam’s chest and motioned for him to move aside. “Get out of my way and don’t move again.” [Read more…]

“I’m very confused,” Remy murmured. “You’re my boss and we shouldn’t—”

“Never mind that. You can quit when—” Sam started,a twinkle in his eye.

Chapter 29

Remy heard the door close behind her and suddenly felt very tired but, at the same time, she didn’t want him to leave. She dropped her purse on the floor and turned around to face Sam, who was preoccupied with locking the door.

“I’m sure you’ll be safe tonight, but just in case, I’m not taking any chances.”

For the first time in a long time, Remy felt safe and had no qualms about spending the night alone. Except Sam was before her. In her apartment.

“Come on, sit down,” Sam said. “What can I get you?” [Read more…]

Chapter 27

Remy did her best to remain calm and professional as the afternoon patients came and went, but it was hard. Dr. Sam tried to play it cool too, but his eyes twinkled every time he looked at her. He was clearly in a tizzy and her heart reacted, beating harder and faster as the day went along. Until four o’clock.

A patient entered the waiting room, Mrs. Timmons, a tiny ancient woman who’d been a regular patient for quite some time. Remy barely said hello when the door slammed wide open and Jeremy strutted in with a savage scowl on his face. [Read more…]

Chapter 26

Sam Kendrick regarded Remy carefully, surprised by what seemed like a sudden change of attitude towards him. Remy thought she saw the sides of his mouth turn up a bit, but if he was happy to hear her ask him to get a drink, he was doing his best to hide his change in mood.

“Are you in trouble? Are you getting strange phone calls again?” Dr. Kendrick couldn’t keep the concern from his voice.

“No, no. It’s not that. Not recently, anyway. I – I’d just really like to talk.” Remy finished confidently and waited for Dr. Sam to reply. [Read more…]

Chapter 25

Remy unwrapped her sandwich and opened her bag of chips. She closed her eyes and sighed, enjoying the simplicity of lunch. The break room was empty, and she enjoyed a moment of peace. No drama with Irene, no awkwardness with Dr. Sam, no visits from Jeremy, who was still visiting his sick mother… the moment was short-lived. She felt her blood pressure rise immediately as her cell phone vibrated twice, indicating a new text. She should have left the thing off. What good did it do her to leave it on? Still, she couldn’t help smiling to herself. After all, there were two men fighting over her. How many women could say the same?

Feast or famine, she sighed, biting into her sandwich. Irene’s words of advice echoed in her mind as she ate. Irene had known Dr. Sam for years. He was a nice guy. Give him a chance. Remy couldn’t help the image that popped into her head. She imagined going on another date with Sam. Kissing him. She pictured moving in with him, wondered what he would be like at home. Did he run a household the same way he ran an office? He certainly did take responsibility for his office… and even when he was having a rough day, Remy had seen him with his patients. He always treated them with the utmost respect. Remy wondered if that’s the way he would treat a wife. A wife!? He’s your boss, she mumbled, her voice breaking up the daydream. [Read more…]

Chapter 24

“Oh, Irene. He is not.”

“Remy, I wouldn’t lie to you. He is. Seriously. And I don’t think you get it.”

“Irene, stop.”

“Remy. Stop and smell the roses. I know you were out with him one night. And I know you had fun. If Jeremy weren’t around, you’d pay more attention to Sam. I know you would.”

“But, Irene. Jeremy aside, I thought you wanted him?”

“Me?” Irene laughed. “No, not me.” [Read more…]

Chapter 22

Remy backed herself against the wall in the hallway, out of sight of the living room doors and windows, cringing with every ring of the phone and wondering if Sam Kendrick could hear the phone ringing from outside. Maybe if he heard it ringing he’d realize she wasn’t there to pick it up.

Her thoughts were again interrupted when he stopped ringing the doorbell. Instead, he switched to a thunderous, booming knock. [Read more…]
