A Deal with the Devil
He smirked, knowing he was on the winning side. "So it's a done deal for three months?" He raised his eyebrows, putting his hand forth for a handshake.
I looked at the long fingers and perfectly aligned nails and then at his patient face. Sighing to myself I my own hand into his and ignored the tingles that flowed through every nerve as his fingers curled around my hand and shook it lightly. "Yeah three months."
"Goodnight then." He winked, removing his hand from mine and turned to walk away.
"Hey wait!" I called out, suddenly remembering something. "You don't have my number."
"What makes you think that? I have my ways Smith." And with one last wink I saw him take a turn and disappear from my sight.
I let out a long breath, leaning on the nearby wall.
Looks like I just made a deal with the Devil.
A sarcastic girl, a cocky guy. Throw in some mystery, murder, filthy jokes, wonderful friends, tons of kisses, secrets, surprises, eye-rolls and a killer on run. And you have got yourself a story never read before.
So grab a cup of hot chocolate, some chips and a warm blanket and get ready to laugh, cry and bite your lip in anticipation. Enjoy!!
