Monica untangled herself from the sheets of the bed, and got up to get a cigarette, still completely naked. She sat down in front of her vanity, crossing her legs and lighting the cigarette, inhaling the sweet burn.

Dan watched her for a few moments, before inspecting his injured hand. It was still swollen and bruised, despite the ice.

Monica looked at Dan’s hand as well, feeling bad for her lover. She was surprised to realize that she had these feelings of concern for him.
Monica surprised herself further by getting ice for him again, and icing his hand while giving him a back rub. Dan exhaled slowly, closing his eyes. He was lying on his stomach, the sheets covering everything from the waist down. His injured hand lay motionless on the bed under an ice pack, while his other hand ruffled his hair aimlessly. Monica used one hand to smoke a cigarette, and the other to rub Dan’s back. He massaged the bridge of his nose with his index finger and thumb, a sign that told Monica he was distressed.

“What is it?”
she asked.

“I’ve really screwed him over,”
Dan replied, referring to Will. “I love him, he’s younger than me, and I’m supposed to protect him… not lead trouble right to him.”

“Dan, you haven’t done anything wrong. It would’ve happened anyway. He walked right out into them in the hallway.”

“They were there because the information they had about him. It came from us.”

“They didn’t catch him going in, so they could’ve easily not seen him leave,”
Monica said soothingly.


Dan still said nothing. “I hope you’re happy if you get your war. If it happens, I’m going to leave you,” he finally broke the silence. Monica sat back, taking her hand away from him quickly.

she sounded astonished. This had not been anticipated. “And you would leave our child?”

“I would sue for custody, and I have plenty of evidence I would need in order to gain full custody,”
he said simply. “I have tapes, pictures, evidence of you engaging in illegal activity. You aren’t employed. I would easily get custody.”

Monica was speechless. She hadn’t anticipated this at all.

She had underestimated her mate.

And as enraged as she was, she was also impressed. To her, Dan had always been some brainless, spineless excuse for a man. Tonight he had taken her completely by surprise and totally upset her important plans. Monica was calculating this new factor into her plans when Dan interrupted her thoughts.

“Don’t be stupid Monica. If you do start the war, and you lose, you’ve losteverything.You should come away with me now. We can start a life together elsewhere, get our child out of this God forsaken city,”
he pleaded, twisting his body to make eye contact with her.

That wasifshe lost. If she won, she could take out Dan, so her child would stay with her. Defeat was not an option. But if the war began, he would leave… her inside information source would be gone.

Perhaps it was already gone anyway. Monica’s head was racing. She realized with a sickening feeling that Dan had more guts than she thought, so what if he told Kieran about her plans? Dan had to be removed from the equation. But Will and Kieran wouldn’t let this go. They would investigate.

They would question her. She would have too much attention directed her way.

And then Monica smiled. Her mind ceased activity. It was perfect. It was the perfect plan.
