Story continues from Twinster – Part 1
Victor listened to the first two minutes of Suzie’s rant about who they just saw and then switched her off through the rest of the drive. He dropped her off at his new four-bed-four-bath house on the edge of town to finish setting up and returned to his newly set up office. All in a day’s job. He could have gotten someone more suave from Phoenix, but Ms. Suzie came in an attractive package. Besides the fact that she charged less than half of the worst from the big city, and would custom-design and do your shopping, she was the embodiment of the compendium of Ego’s Trip.
But what the–hell was going on?
How cruel would the hand of fate twist him till ten years was back, right here in the middle of nowhere-Arizona! Destiny Murray lived here? How could that even be remotely possible? He thought he saw her ghost in every shadow in New York. He was happy to get a contract big enough to lure him away from the demons of his city, long enough too. Had he chosen to go to Hawaii or Mexico, would he have found her there or was he being paranoid?
And that boy…Manny Murray, smartest kid in three states, his son. Suzie had told him everything about the mother and son.
He closed the door to his office and leaned against it. If he hadn’t signed the contract papers the minute he stepped off the plane ten hours ago, he’d be writing Ms. Suzie a fat “I’m-sorry-but-you’re-fired” check and be on the plane to New York now. He’d not care to get bad reviews for his professional incompetence either.
He didn’t think he could live in New York with Des. Was it here in this narrow strip, he would?
Victor slid to the polished wooden floor and glared at his manicured fingers.
