Tell me, Rebecca, are you looking for answers or an escape?”Both, is that so shameful? Who wouldn’t want to escape such a dangerous situation?“I’m keeping myself alive,” I quipped, irritated at his insinuation.“If that’s the case, you’re not doing a very good job.” His eyes lifted to indicate my presence out on the dark street.“Are you saying you’re a threat to my safety?”“That’s what you want to believe, isn’t it?”“It’s not a matter of want. I’m trying to be cautious, but obviously, I trusted you enough to come out here.” My voice trailed off with the reluctant admission.Lochlan slowly pulled back, and my body shuddered at the loss. “If you’re being cautious, then you won’t pretend Ronan is something he’s not. His past is far uglier than you could imagine.” He turned to start walking away when I called after him.“Funny, he gave me the same warning about you.”He glanced over his shoulder with a look as sharp as a razor’s edge. “For once, he isn’t wrong.” As his figure retreated, his booted feet didn’t make a single sound on the glistening pavement.
