Warning: This is just the start. This doesn't end well. And it's going to get much worse before it ever gets better.
I push her buttons. I want to push them in the good way. Dirty, up-against-the-wall, my-hand-in-her-pants kind of way.
But that’s not possible, because I’m dark and she’s light, and we both know it.
So I push her buttons in the bad way, making her hate me.
If a genie granted me three wishes, I’d ask for Cole Parker to never look at me again, that I’d forget the dark promise in his eyes, and that just once, before he vanished from my life completely, that he’d push me up against a wall and f*@k me.
I don’t bother to say goodbye. I just power down my computer and head for the back staircase. There’s a gated backyard that leads to an alleyway, and I can dash across it into the back of the import/export shop across the way. From there, I can get a cab.
It’s a great plan, but as soon as I swing the door open, I know it’s not going to happen.For one thing, there are a couple of photographers sitting on motorbikes on the other side of the gate.But even worse than that, Cole Parker is standing on this side of it, and he looks pissed.Cole Parker. I think of him as the CFO of The Horus Group—CFO standing for Chief F*@k-You Officer. I don’t actually know his title. The Horus Group probably doesn’t do titles.The four men came out of nowhere two years ago and buzz quickly swirled around them, branding them as the go-to crisis management team in the city. Probably got that reputation by getting bad people out of even worse situations. Hardly noble heroes, even if they look the part.There are four of them, all various shades of bad-ass super soldiers who turned in their uniforms for suits and smooth lines. Cole and Jason, both ex-Navy SEALs, according to my brother. Tag, an ex-cop, local to the Metro DC area. And Wilson…he looks like a computer nerd on steroids. Clearly CIA hacker gone rogue.And one of them is standing between me and freedom.
