100 Word Wednesday -- The Black Heart

So my 100 word Wednesday is a day late and 200 words ;) But- yeah. I'm sorry about that. At least it's up this week! That's something.

It's also a snippet from THE BLACK HEART (Hindsight 2) which came out yesterday. It's 99 cents until Saturday <3

**Backstory: Walker (the narrators) is in jail for punching a cameraman in the nose.**

I hung my head. “I was a little busy to text her back, you know, with the protecting your honor and all.”

She actually snorted. Must have been a Rivers’ trait. “Like my honor needs your protecting.”

“Obviously it did,” I reminded her.

She narrowed her eyes at me and placed her thumbs on the keyboard again. This time, she had a devilish giddiness to her. “What? No. Don’t. I’m in here, unable to protect myself and I'm gonna…”

“You’re gonna do what?” she challenged playfully. She was so cute when she was playful. “Talk me to death.”

“Oh I can be very persuasive…”

“Children!” Sheriff Rivers yelled, his face red. Clearly frustrated. “Can you please be quiet so I can write this up? Unless you want to stay in here all night, Mister Scott.”

I didn’t.

But I had to know. “What did you send her, J? Tell me.”

“Oh for the love of…” the sheriff said — I’m sure you can imagine his tone.

J laughed and walked the phone to me, close enough so I could read it.

Sorry, Alicia. A little tied up at the moment. See you tomorrow… maybe.

I bet you can guess the look I gave J.

After a huge sigh, he-- the sheriff-- reluctantly handed over the key.
