“You okay down there? You’ve had quite a day.”
I should not try to hold a conversation when I’m that tired. It’s almost as bad as being drunk. Except that I’m not stupid when I’m tired, just vulnerable and honest. I most definitely should not talk to a man who has a chuckle like velvet, not after the kind of day I’d had.
“Yes,” I said. “But, it couldn’t have been easy for you, either.” I knew from Hank and Clara that Norman had worked at Winterlight only for a few months. Malcolm had hired him on Sandy’s recommendation. Before that, he and Malcolm hadn’t met. Still. He was human. “I’m sorry.”
“Thanks. But I’m the one who should be apologizing. This is a mess. I would understand if you wanted to—”
“I’m fine, really.” Like hell, but if he thought I was so easily gotten rid of, he had another think coming.
Join me tomorrow for W is for Winterlight.
