I couldâve fucking strangled her. She knew it too because she stepped away quickly. âTouch me and Iâll have you!â she snarled.
âBruja mala leche! What the fuck do you think youâre playing at! You canât push me around!â
âSure I can.â Her eyes were slate grey, the same colour as the sky, and just as cold. âI need help, and youâre going to give it.â
âWhat the hell are you talking about?â
âIâve got a situation. I need someone who isnât afraid of murder and mayhem.â
I should have charmed her, offered to help and maybe it would have settled it, but I was too mad to even consider it. âHelp you? Over my dead fucking body!â
She shrugged. âWe can do it that way, too.â She took out her phone. âIâll call you soon, hopefully within the hour. If you still refuse, I call Smith.â The eyes were hard. âIâd rather not shop you, because I hate that bastard, but I will if you make me.â
I gave her my number. I mean, I wanted to kill her, but in London they notice things like bodies in the street. Especially if youâre careless enough to do it in broad daylight next to a cop shop.
