Marge Hammond quickened her steps—her heels pounding the sidewalk in rapid cadence. On two previous occasions she had imagined she was being followed. This time she had no doubts. Once she had turned in time to catch a glimpse of someone ducking into the shadows.

Pressing on, she half-jogged to the locked entrance of her apartment building and inserted the key. After a quick turn she rushed inside and bolted for the elevator. Not until she was leaning safely against the closed door of her apartment did she feel safe. Even still, she stared a long minute at the doorknob before taking off her coat. Could he have followed her into the building? Was he going to attack her during the night?

She hung up her coat, trying to shake the heebie-jeebies. What she needed was a hot cup of tea. After pouring herself a steaming cup, she plopped down one the couch and put up her feet. The call came almost as soon as she was settled—beverage in hand. She hit the speaker button.

“Hi, Sweetie. Just get in?”

“A few minutes ago.”

“Why didn’t you call me?”

“I thought we agreed to keep our distance.”

There was a pause on the other end of the line, during which, Marge took a long sip on her tea.

“I didn’t agree to that. As I remember, you were the one doing all the talking.”

Marge frowned at the phone. “You’re willing to risk everything for a quick tryst? Well, I’m not. We’ve come too far.”

“Who would see us? He’s on his honeymoon, and his mind won’t be on business. Come on. I’ll be careful.”

Marge set down her tea and lifted the receiver. “What if I just talk dirty to you?”

“No, I’m coming over.”

Marge could see she wasn’t going to win. “Tell you what. Give a couple of hours and unwind and freshen up. I’ll meet you at Herbies.”

“Better than nothing, I guess. I’ll be there. Just don’t keep me waiting too long.”

Marge replaced the receiver and went back to her tea. They had been planning this too long to get caught now. The timing was perfect. With Samisen on his honeymoon and the trouble with Cassandra, no one would ever suspect them of being the ones responsible for the company’s downward turn. Too bad he could never find out. Wouldn’t she love to see the look on his face.
