The light at the end of the tunnel of deceit would bring closure for her. She’d finally know whether Josh was still alive or if she’d signed Steve’s death sentence.
She knew it was over before it began. Deep in her mind, she knew.
But her heart still held hope. Hope that Josh was alive. Hope that she wasn’t a pawn in Wo Fat’s game.
When she finally saw the truth, that Josh was dead, she knew it was finally over. She was merely steps from the light.
With a bullet to the chest, the light surrounded her. It welcomed her. That light was Josh waiting for her.
