Mysterious Ways-Sneak Peek

Sucking air in over his perfect teeth, Nick felt like he’d been sucker punched but he kept his spine straight and gaze fixed on Mason’s even as he grabbed Mason by his sport coat and dragged him into the nearest broom closet for a little privacy. “What in the hell is wrong with you?” He snarled. “What right do you have to throw my personal private life around like it’s idle gossip?”

“Slow down, Pony Boy—”

Nick wasn’t listening and he couldn’t give a damn less about whatever lame excuse was about to come out Mason’s mouth, “What would you have done? If you came home from deployment and discovered a bastard son you never knew about had wiped out half your family? If you had to watch him gut your mother in front of you just because she was defending your daughter, would you have let him go?”

It was a cheap shot and Mason knew it, he tried to back pedal, “I’d have shot the son of a bitch where he stood but….”

“There are no ‘buts’. None. He killed my wife, my mother, my son, my grandfather, my brother and two of my sisters. I know you know that’s exactly what happened; hell I even gave you the police reports when you were thinking about hiring me. I lost almost everyone and everything I cherished, how dare you hold it against me?”

“Whatever,” Mason growled, “I signed off on hiring you and I’ll fire you just as fast—”

“Go ahead,” Nick dared, “we both know I don’t need this job. Hell, I don’t need any job. I do it because I love it.”

Fine, Jackson was right, he didn’t need any job, in fact, Nick’s bank account probably made Hannah’s look like chump change. Mason supposed that was what happened when one was the son of a famous artist who died in such a spectacular fashion but, in Mason’s blue eyes, that didn’t let Jackson off the hook where Hannah was concerned. “Here’s what else I know; I’m a doctor see? A damn good one, tops in my field the world over, I can kill you and not leave any forensic evidence behind so….stay the hell away from my sister!”

“I’ve known a lot of men like you, Mason. Too many, in fact, I watched them try to steamroll over my mother and my sisters. You’re a real piece of work. What are you gonna do; hold Hannah hostage the rest of her life just so you aren’t lonely? You’re pathetic.” With that, Nick opened the broom closet door and walked away shaking his head and grumbling under his breath.
