Whats Left of Me (Whats Left of Me #1) Chimera: A Jim Chapel Mission (Jim Chapel #1)

But you don’t have to apologize.

No, he said, and Nikki quieted. You didn’t give me a chance to say shit to you. Not in four years. Not when I tried to call you. Not when I tried to make sure you weren’t fucking hurt. You disappeared when you left for college. Dropped off the face of the planet and never came back.Isn’t that what you wanted? she asked. Because I am pretty sure at one point that morning that you never wanted to see ‘my fucking face’ again. A knot expanded at the back of her throat. It still hurt to even think about how he had looked at her, how utterly disgusted he’d been. I remember you saying that.

I, Strahd: The Memoirs of a Vampire (Ravenloft #7)

He didn’t respond to that.I also remember you telling me I dis—Then why are you asking me this? It’s not like you really wanted to talk to me or something, she shot back, getting angry. She knew what she’d done was wrong, beyond wrong, but the anger was still building in her. Had he really expected her to answer those calls? After what he’d said to her? After he’d seen how devastated she’d been? There’d been no way she could’ve talked to him. She’d been embarrassed. Humiliated. And most importantly, her heart shattered into a million, stupid little pieces.

But now you’re back, he said. Strolling back into my life like nothing happened.I wasn’t exactly acting like nothing happened nor was I strolling anywhere—

Do you realize what could’ve happened to me if anyone ever found out?

She gasped as her eyes shot wide. I was eighteen, Gabe. Not a minor—Nikki nodded and then turned away, hoping Sabrina would take the hint.

She didn’t. How are you feeling after your fall?A chill skated down her spine as she turned back to Sabrina. There wasn’t a single second where Nikki believed genuine concern had prompted that question. I’m feeling fine. Thanks for asking.

This is Not a Test

Sabrina nodded. I’m glad to hear that.Nikki was going to call BS on that.

I would hate to see something tragic like a serious fall happen to you, when you’re so young. Sabrina smiled then. I’ll see you at dinner.Another icy chill danced over her skin as Nikki watched Sabrina leave. A horrible thought occurred to her as she stood there. Had . . . had it been Sabrina who’d pushed her? She’d been at the house yesterday. Obviously. Could she have snuck away from Devlin and done it? Nikki had spilled the champagne on her, but that seemed like a drastic retaliation even for someone as petty as Sabrina.

Thank God that after Wednesday, Nikki had to only worry about getting dinner prepared and served to Devlin, which was like serving food to a wall, and Gabe, which was like serving a water buffalo.Over the next two days, she only saw Gabe during dinner and other than retrieving endless glasses of water for him, he hadn’t said much of anything to her other than asking how her arm was on Wednesday.

She hadn’t seen him during the day. For all she knew, he wasn’t even home, and Devlin was like one of the ghosts in the house. She’d see him out of the corner of her eyes and when she’d turn to acknowledge him, he was gone.Devlin was probably checking to make sure her jeans didn’t have holes in them and that she wasn’t falling down any more sets of steps.
