“I need my locks changed again.”
Louise exhaled and seized a handful of streaked hair. “Billy lost, then found the extra key.”
“He’s returned it?”
“I don’t trust that woman we met at the party the night he gave me this ring.”
“She grabbed my hand, ‘Look at this?’” she said and fluttered her fake lashes at Billy. Six months she pursued him until we broke up.”
“He came begging for it last week—for her.”
Margie’s eyes bulged, her mouth as wide and round as a grapefruit. “I see you weren’t obliging.”
“He’s the one who proposed, and I accepted in good faith…and now…”
Insistent knuckles pommelled the door. “Excuse me.”
“You! Get out.” Louise slammed the door and latched it. “It’s her; she’s obsessed with this ring, and dares come here? How had he afforded something this incredible?”
“Might be hot?”
“Then, I’ll hide it.”
