Tuesday's Tales 3rd Sept -prompt 'building'

Welcome to
Tuesday's Tales
A place where books are born.
I am offering one more week of Samantha and Rafael from my newly contracted story
Name The Day.
This week's prompt is 'Building' and I am going back  in my WIP.

Adrian’s imperious command, tinged with satisfaction had Rafe swallowing a string of curses. Unable to ignore the man, he stopped and nodded. “Adrian.”

Adrian’s gaze shifted to where Samantha, still unaware, or purposely ignoring the interruption, continued towards the doors. “Does this mean you have agreed to my terms?”

“Adele.” Rafe acknowledged the woman at the table before answering. “It means that they are under consideration.” With a slight bow he stepped back. “You’ll have to excuse me.”

He didn’t wait for Adrian’s response, not when he’d seen Samantha’s pallor the moment she noticed he’d stopped, and whose table he’d stopped at. If he didn’t reach her before she left the building he knew Samantha would hail a taxi and leave without him.

He reached her outside, just as a cab pulled up to the curb. He followed her inside, gave the driver her address and then pulled his phone from his pocket and cancelled his driver.

“Did you know he’d be here?”

Not quite an accusation, but close enough. If she hadn’t been through enough emotional hassle this afternoon, he’d have called her on it.

“No. And before you ask I didn’t give him any information other than what Adrian assumed.”


“His arrogance persuaded him that because he saw us together we were conceding to his demands.”


“Nothing.” He pulled her up against him. “I said we were considering his suggestion, and left.” If this was the closest he’d get to her anytime soon, he’d take the opportunity while it lasted.
Thank you for reading this week's offering, I love hearing your thoughts.
