Dane Manchester stood in silence, his eyes unable to look anywhere else but at the photographs of him and Kitty Benedict that were strewn across the desk, as a huge lump formed in his throat.
“What’s wrong, Dane?” his mother-in-law, Joyce Preston, laughed menacingly. “Cat got your tongue?”
“Where… where did you get these?” he asked as he finally began to gather his wits about him. “Were you spying on me?”
“I have my ways. Surely you know that by now.” She leaned forward and brushed her lips against his ear. “Now the question is – what am I going to do with those pictures? I’m pretty certain that the last thing you want is for anyone to see them – not my precious Sara and definitely not your father.”
“What… what do you want?” he asked in a voice barely above a whisper, the wind almost completely knocked out of him. “What do you want to keep those pictures secret?”
“What do I want?” Joyce repeated the question and then let out a throaty laugh. “Why, Dane dear, it should be blatantly obvious – I want everything!”
