Excerpt from The Short Game

The blank television screen stared at me across the room and I rubbed at my fingernail, more as a way of occupying my hands than anything else. It was too late to wonder why I couldn't keep my mouth shut and live with what was going on inside me. I didn't doubt it would be a long time before I forgot the embarrassment connected to Thursday evening. I also didn't know how I would look Garth in the eyes again.

Jace moved away to sit at the end of the sofa. "Are you going to tell me what this is about or should I guess?"

I rubbed my hand across the front of my tee-shirt and down my tights. "I'm just getting my thoughts together."

"If you have to be thinking this hard to start a conversation with your man, then it must be something I won't want to hear."

Squeezing the bridge of my nose, I sighed. "You could say that."

Jace moved closer, pulling my hand from my face. He turned sideways and tipped my face toward him with two fingers under my chin. A moment passed and then he said, "I don't believe you."

I lowered my gaze, but he wasn't letting me wriggle off the hook. "What did you do this time?"

I didn't have the words to answer, no matter how many attempts I made.

After what felt like two lifetimes, Jace raised his hands, clasping them close to his face as if he were praying. "Don't tell me you had sex with him?"

When I sucked in a sharp breath, he jackknifed off the seat and shoved his hands in the pockets of his jeans. More time passed and like a coward, I hoped he'd be so disgusted he would walk out on me, but that didn't happen.
