    Summary

    “Need a favor,” Rio says a moment later, his eyes settling back on her as if to gauge her reaction. Beth suppresses the urge to make a retort or refuse altogether, knowing that despite the tentative cease-fire they’ve been maintaining for the past few weeks, he still has a short fuse when it comes to her, and she still has a long road ahead of her before she’s back in his good graces.
    “What kind of favor?” She prompts, her tone tepid as she eyes him warily.
    “Got a meetin’ up North tomorrow night. You comin’ with.”

    ・・・

    Rio takes advantage of a business opportunity by bringing Beth along to pitch her product. When the meeting goes sideways and Beth gets hurt, the tension between them finally comes to a head.

    Summary

    "Here's how we're gonna do this," Rio's voice is soft, intimate, sending a shiver up Beth's spine. "You're gonna get in the car, and I'm not gonna shoot you in the leg."

    That's when Beth realizes his gun is out, suddenly feeling it pressed to her thigh, "Then you're gonna stop fuckin' testing me because one of these days, I'm not gonna give you a warning, yeah?"

    "You- you can't-" Beth's trembling, and she knows it's obvious because he smiles, and it isn't a nice smile, "You need me alive, remember?"

    "There are all kinds of ways you can shoot someone so they don't die," Rio chucks her chin, a glancing touch that barely connects, and backs up a step. "You should know, darlin'."
