The Secret Sanctuary: Part 5 by Johayan
The mysterious Chris appointment started my day at 9am, then lunch at 11:30, then covering the desk for the afternoon. Not a bad day until 4:30pm when I had to deal with Kate getting arrested for the massive fraud she had been committing for the two years.
The criminal charges had already been filed and mountains of paperwork sent via courier to my lawyer as supporting evidence.
I looked at the clock on the desk and saw it was already 8:15. With a client at 9, I realized I should find some breakfast and get ready for the day.
The Sheriff #3 (2.1) by Julie Lynn Hayes
Dustin couldn’t decide which was worse—having a customer or not having one. He wasn’t all that computer literate himself, but he knew enough to get by. The real reason he even had this job was because of Denver. And frankly, he didn’t care for it. He couldn’t see doing this for the rest of his life. Or anything else related to sales. And most definitely not fast food.
He wanted to do something more interesting, maybe even exciting. Like law enforcement. But he had no idea how to go about that, which was why he’d wanted to talk to Roy. He was a sheriff, surely he could give Dustin pointers on how to get into the field.
But Sheriff Landry had been less than helpful.
Buy One, Get Two and Three, Chapter 48, by Carol Pedroso
Daniel shivered at Carlos’ voice calling through the door.
“So, should we answer? Or should we see what he does if we ignore him?” Silas giggled against Daniel’s shoulder.
Daniel thought about it and shook his head at his brother’s unrepentant grin.
Raising his voice slightly Daniel called out, “We’re fine.”
“Call if you need anything,” Carlos said and they heard footsteps moving away from the door.
“What if, what we need is a cock up our ass?” Silas whispered.
Daniel let out a choking laugh, his brother always knew how to make him smile.
