DELETED SCENE FIVE
TEARS OF TESS
Copyright PEPPER WINTERS
I hunched, sliding down the wall of the glass shower. No. I couldn’t stomach company.
Suzette entered wafting her hand at fogging steam. “Ami. You need to get out now. Master Mercer has arranged a late dinner for you.”
Food? I couldn’t think of food. I’d throw up all back up again.
Suzette turned off the shower and ducked to my level, holding a fluffy towel. “Here. Hush now, you’re safe.”
Those two little words again.
My eyes couldn’t stop the stem of tears and Suzette shuffled closer, patting my wet shoulder. “It’s okay to cry. Get it out. But I hope you’ll realize this is best place for you. Here nothing else can touch you, but Q, and that isn’t such a bad thing. Is it?”
I wiped away moisture on my cheeks. “No,” I whispered. And really, the knowledge only Q could touch me was like winning the lottery. He’d been nothing but sensual and possessive. Never evil and hurtful. He drew emotions and feelings from my body even I didn’t know I had.
It wasn’t so bad to be owned by a master like Q.
It could’ve been worse. So much worse.
