Just then, Silas’s voice rang out, “Madam.”

The women shifted their gazes to see Shane and Silas walking toward them.


Sally let go of Natalie’s shoulder and smiled impishly. “Nat, Mr. Shane is here.”

Natalie rolled her eyes. “I see that, thanks.”

Underneath the admiration was a less perceptible longing that had quickly disappeared from her eyes.

“There’s was a bit of traffic on the way. Sorry to have kept you waiting,” uttered Shane.


Natalie shook her head. “That’s alright. You’re here now.”
