    Summary

    Sitting here at the table in her sun-drenched kitchen, Beth feels like she’s trapped in a cage with a leopard but Rio is genial, drinking coffee, discussing current events in the paper and asking questions about her kids. Sometimes his questions get so specific that she wonders if he goes through their backpacks when she’s not looking. Once, he brings a box of Danishes for breakfast and recommends that she save some for her children’s after-school snack.

    Summary

    There’s a pause like a held breath, and then the cellist lets out a long, deep note. The rest of the quartet joins in with a slow, soft melody Beth doesn’t recognize, but the romance of it’s almost enough to make her heart swell and ache.

    Or maybe it does as she looks to Rio, her eyes wide, disbelieving, but that’s only because of the irony. He feels it, too; she’s pretty sure. She can tell from the wry twist to the smile that curls up the corner of his mouth.

    But even still, when he extends a hand to her, something in Beth flutters and takes flight.

    Stupid. She’s so stupid.

    Summary

    She almost dropped the box when he came closer and kissed her on the cheek, she hadn’t expected that.
    She forced herself not to react, she had always found him extremely attractive, and the truth was that the first time she had met him she had enjoyed flirting with him. But she couldn’t forget that they were enemies, just thinking about kissing him was a betrayal to her agency. And he was doing this just to distract her, it meant nothing.

    Summary

    Alicia’s still wiping down the bar, but she’s the first one to notice him when she glances up and over and he gives her a small nod of acknowledgment before turning his attention back to Elizabeth.

    There’s a bright pink boa around her neck and winding down around her arms. She’s waving ‘em in the air as she twirls around and his gaze drops down, taking note of the fact that she’s kicked off her boots and her feet are sliding across the bar floor in just socks.
