34. One More Mistake

"I guess it had to play out this way, huh?"

She rubbed her wrist, and looked one moment resigned and the next frightened, but never sorry or surprised. Why should she be?

"Nothing to say."

He took a step forward, and his eyes must have flashed, because hers widened and her chin trembled. She wasn't up for any of this. Give her enough time and she'd learn to fake it, but her heart would never be in it.

"Are you going to kill me?"

Jake snorted.

"I don't have to, sweetie."

It wasn't her first mistake. Might not be her last.
