    Summary

    No? he managed.

    No, she said just as quietly, just as powerfully. I will not be dismissed.

    He was unsure whether she meant her position as governess, or her presence from his house.

    You cannot stay on, he said simply, hoping she could understand what he could not bring himself to say.

    She looked him full in the face then, and said, You cannot dismiss me. You act as though you are honour bound to sever our association, but honour would dictate quite the opposite.

    My god, he thought. She'll be the death of me yet.

    Summary

    Trixie lays the bills out in neat piles by denomination. “Hang on.” He counts them again, just to be sure. “Oh my god.” A breathless laugh knocks out of him. “I’m taking you out,” he decides aloud.

    “Oh, please. I’m not gonna be that easy to kill,” Brian scoffs. “I’m tenacious, bitch.”

     

    (Trixie sends a very late-night text. Brian's up.)
