She Said, He Said
ONE RED SHOE is a romantic suspense, you expect the bad guys will be
caught and the hero and heroine will finally get their happy-ever-after.
No spoilers there. After the book was finished, I happened to overhear a
conversation between Daria and Sam. Now, I’m no gossip but I thought you might enjoy.
Daria: I am so glad it’s all over and that you came into my life.
Sam: I am, too. I just wish the circumstances had been different.
I was tired of being in a rut, living in the same town, on the same
road, in the same house all my life. Sheesh. I’m pushing the big THREE-O
and I hadn’t even lived yet. I wanted adventure with a capital A.
Well, you got one when you came to New York City. A real
Adventure—capitalized and in italics. Probably more than you bargained
for, hey, kid?
Daria: A lot more.
Sam: Bet you never expected to see a bleeding fool when you barged into that restroom.
Daria: No, I didn’t. Besides, I wasn’t in the wrong place, you were. By the way, you weren’t a fool.
Sam: Sure felt like one.
I couldn’t believe you tried to convince me you cut yourself shaving.
Your gunshot wounds were in your calf and your butt. What a card. Just like my brothers.
Sam: Speaking of those boys, have they recovered yet from learning about how you took down a Russian Mafia assassin-in-training?
Hehehe. That guy was huge. And was he ever mad! I mean, revenge was
definitely on his mind. Steam was coming out of his ears.
think he was still p.o.’d that you dumped him on his bare butt in a
prickly hedge and later into a freezing cold lake. Yeah, revenge was
definitely on his mind. Scared ten years off my life when he grabbed you
from behind. And I couldn’t save you.
Daria: You were rather tied up wrestling the real assassin. I, on the other hand, took care of my own problem.
Sam: *winces* That guy is probably still singing soprano. You done good, kid.
Yes, I did. Wish my brothers had seen that. On second thought, it’s a
good thing they didn’t. They would have rushed in and ruined my triumph.
They still aren’t convinced we belong together.
Sam: You know I have that problem, too.
Daria: It’s a good thing our author knows what’s best—even if you don’t. Remember, I’m the best thing that ever happened to you.
Sam: Damn straight you are.
The two of them closed the door so I don’t know what happened next. But I can guess.
You can find out more about what happened to Daria and Sam between the
time she left home and they found their HEA in ONE RED SHOE.
