    Summary

    "Double or nothing," said Webster abruptly.

    "How exactly do you mean to double 'everything I had?'" said Ash. He meant it to come out level, but there was a quaver in his voice.

    "One more trick," Webster said. "Play, and win or lose you will walk away with your fortune." Ash stared at him. Webster made an impatient gesture. "I don't want or need your money. Or your house. Or your coat and shirt, come to that."

    It was an offer of princely generosity. Ash's mouth was dry. "And what would you have from me?" he asked.

    Something flared in Webster's cool expression for a moment, like a shark flashing a fin in still waters. "A month," he said.

    Summary

    “Oh my God,” Nancy exclaims, softly enough so they won’t attract any nosy people. “You like Jonathan.”

    She knows Steve understands her implications, watches as he squirms across from her in his seat. “So? You like him, too,” he shoots back, and it’s less of an accusation than a statement.

    “It’s not like that,” she denies instantly, her default response that Steve waves off just as quickly.

    “No, it’s totally ‘like that,’” he says, pointing his spoon at her and smirking now.

    Summary
