Kissing the driver good-bye, Marlene Barnes exited the 2011 Malibu and waltzed across the parking lot. The raven-haired beauty with a taste for the finer things in life, unlocked the new, red sports, Mercedes parked in the doctor’s parking lot with the other expensive vehicles. Driving out onto Imperial Highway and down to Highway 74, with her thoughts lingering on the last few hours spent with her lover. Marlene drove faster than usual to get home ahead of Jerry and Andrew. Smiling as she drove into the garage, without seeing Jerry’s car parked in his usual spot.

“If that’s true, then tell me why you’re seen getting out of his old Malibu and going to your red sports Mercedes car which you parked in different business parking lots around town. I know you’re up to something,” Katherine said.
“I don’t know what you’ve been drinking, but come on, Mom. You should know I would never do anything to hurt my family,” Marlene said, without answering her mother’s question. Yet, she knew if anyone told Jerry about Frank, it would kill him ─, or he would kill her. “Honey, I love you and you’re my world, but please, don’t expect me to sit back and say nothing,” Katherine said, concerned about her daughter’s family
“Yes, Mother, you love me and I love you, we have a fantastic relationship. I swear I’ll see you in your grave before I let you cause me problems. Please leave it alone.

“The other morning Jerry stopped by the store, visibly upset over something, but refused to talk about it and assured me that we didn’t need to worry about them. Although concerned about his son’s family, Andrew hadn’t sensed any problems.
“I want you to know that you don’t have to feel alone. I know you wanna reach out for your grandma, but your mother and I are still here.”
so I’m here. You know I stick to my words,” Carrie raised her eyebrows. “With all your family issues, we really didn’t expect you to come. We thought you’d be all stodgy so we’re just surprised to see you here,” Rachel added and displayed a sly smirk. Carrie was bewildered; she did not see that coming from her ‘supposed’ friends.
“Maggie, we have some stuff that we want to talk to you about,” Rachel explained, not liking the way this conversation was heading. “And with Kelly reading lips and all maybe she shouldn’t be in the room.”
After spending several hours, in the motel with Frank, Marlene showered, dressed, and started to leave, the raven-haired beauty, picked up her purse, going toward the door, she said, “Thanks for a lovely time. I need to go, love you.”
Meanwhile, Mrs.Jones was at her apartment making food for her nephew Jack Jones. She was making his favorite food, chicken with mashed potatoes. While finishing up she put the food in a brown bag and grabbed her sweater. On her way to the police station she was starting to wonder how was Roger doing or if he’s still stealing.

I clutch my Ka-Bar tightly in my fist, my knuckles turning white. Even though I am talking to a “friendly”, my combat training has coached me to trust no one. Our conversation carries on, but I am acutely aware of the way he observes me. For an instant, his mahogany eyes seemed permeated with disgust. My grip shifts tighter around my weapon. Before I could react, the “friendly” had me rotated around; his own knife striving to slice my jugular vein. The blade grazes my skin, it’s almost cool against my now flushed skin.

My hand moves swiftly and efficiently, cutting all over
