So typical of her lovely Toby to make himself scarce while she entertained Tony! How many men would be trusting enough to leave their girlfriend alone with an old flame, especially when they knew the fire still flickered?
Gazing into Tony’s soft brown eyes, she clung to her image of Toby trudging bravely along the dark canal on a dank afternoon. How horribly easy to imagine him disappearing into the freezing mist …
‘Oh no,’ she said.
‘But weren’t you just a little bit Tempted?’
She gazed into his frank blue eyes, their lashes still wet. Trust deserved honesty.
