More Tija Trouble

“Is there something wrong, Mitch?”

She stared, her eyes misting and her lip quivering like she was about to cry.  It was the greatest weapon of manipulation in her arsenal.

He fought to regain control and spoke in a low, calm voice, “I’d really appreciate it if you would keep what happened between us private.”

“I am sorry.” She leaned in and captured his hand, drawing it to her breast. “Come to my quarters so we can talk.”

  1. Hahahah, love her technique! "Come to my quarters so we can talk." I don't think talking is what she's got planned at all. :)

  18. My, my, Laurie! Love the expnaded scene. I want these two to be together, and I love the way you just keep them a bit apart! Great story...

    Where'd ya get that sexy guy/gal pic? (fans self) Whew!

  19. @ Kaye. Hiya! Yeah, I like the photo, too. *whew!* It's an iStock purchase. I find a lot of great images there. (Found several of the cover photos for my published CPs, too.)

    Tija's actually hedging into minor antagonist territory in this story. Lissa is the heroine. Tija presents a moral dilemma for Mitch, the hero. The situation is part of his character arc and plays a role in resolving a family issue in his past. (Hard to explain better without spoilers.)
