A little peek at Gideon

January 23, 2009

I’ve got a little writing Q&A to post tomorrow, but since I was reading over Whatever It Takes today, I thought I’d post a little scene from Gideon’s pov. Like the tagline says, The best laid plans can come back to bite you in the ass…

“What are you doing here?”

The question killed the last of the buzz tearing through his veins. There was a reason he’d left Tate four years ago without saying goodbye, and answering her question now meant shoving the door wide open on a subject he hadn’t planned on talking about. Ever.

He added another foot of space between them, hoping like hell that it would calm the chafing need to slide his hand beneath her chin and angle her mouth up to meet his. “Looking for a friend,” he settled on, cringing inwardly at how lame that sounded.

Then again, judging by the handful of furious communications she’d passed between their lawyers after the way he’d left things, anything short of him whimpering while crawling across shattered glass would probably sound lame to her.

Her gaze darted over his shoulder. “You’re looking for Penny?”

“You know her?” He knew there had been a damn good reason to turn right back around the second he drove off the ferry. His concern for Penny had overridden the nervous apprehension twisting his insides, the sensation promising things could only go from bad to worse.

Tate nodded, gesturing to the door with an envelope crushed in her white-knuckled grip. “I was just headed over to see her.”

Christ, they were friends? If Karma were an island, he was definitely on it. The way his luck was running, it was probably getting ready to sink into the ocean any moment.
