Day 21 . . . April 15 . . . Stepping over and around the mess on his floor, he went into the hallway . . .

Day 25 . . . April 19 . . . They stood there staring at each other, and it would have been odd, . . .
Day 26 . . . April 20 . . . “It’s not a big deal or anything. But I guess with you always accusing . . .
Day 27 . . . April 21 . . . At a loss, Spencer joined her on the couch. Instead of lounging back, . . .

Day 33 . . . April 27 . . . “Hmm.” Her eyes narrowed. “That was a mighty quick agreement.”
Day 34 . . . April 28 . . . Dear God, Jackson looked into large-scale trafficking rings . . .

Day 36 . . . April 30 . . . She was making mincemeat out of him. He had to take control . . .
Day 37 . . . May 01 . . . He had no idea, except that it annoyed him to hear her be so coarse. . .
Day 38 . . . May 02 . . . “I’m not!” “You don’t have to expect the worst, either.” He didn’t . . .
