I’m continuing where I left off from last week with Swashbuckler, a contemporary romance. I’m keeping you in suspense, btw. We don’t get to find out what happened with Angela until a few weeks from now. Sorry! I know that’s evil of me. 😉 Remember, before Rachel got the call last week, she’d just had a fight with Rodger.
The roses were limp in his fist as he realized Rachel wasn’t there. Her suitcase was gone. A quick check of the bathroom confirmed she had packed up everything. Almost everything; she had forgotten her razor and half-empty bottle of travel shampoo in the shower. Items easy to replace. It was only a hotel room, but it felt as if life had been sucked out of it with Rachel gone.
How could she have left him? It had only been one argument, one silly argument. Would she really give up on their relationship that easily?
