Hitched & Hitched Again: A Comedy of Marital Mayhem ( Elysia and Tarquin) Chapter 28

Chapter 28 

She hastily released Tarquin’s arm with a sheepish grin, her cheeks flushed with 

embarrassment. “Thanks,she muttered, digging into her pocket to shove a wad of bills into his hand before bolting away

The clickclack of her high heels echoed, fading into the distance until swallowed by the pulsing beats of the bar’s jukebox

Tarquin watched her disappear, his brow furrowed in confusion and a hint of something else. It had been six years since he’d been this close to a woman

The rush of familiar warmth came flooding back, unbidden, reminding him of that night so long ago. Her lips had been just as soft… 

That was why he hadn’t pushed her away immediately

Noticing Tarquin’s distress, Gage broke free from Lowell’s grip and circled back

Tarquin, that wasYou know her?he inquired, a note of surprise in his voice

Tarquin glanced down at the cash in his handtwo crisp hundreddollar bills and a fiftyand scowled

Without a word, he shoved the money at Lowell and stalked off to the private booth, ignoring Gage’s query

Lowell examined the $250 in his hands. Was this Elysia’s way of sealing his bosslips? Or was it for the kiss she planted on his boss

A kiss and silence for $250wasn’t that too cheap for Tarquin’s worth

Seeing Tarquin’s foul mood, Gage didn’t dare follow. Instead, he grabbed Lowell’s arm and asked, Tarquin knows that bartender?” 

With a police nod, Lowell pocketed the cash. Met her a couple of times.” 

What’s their deal? How could she dare to kiss Tarquin? And how could he let her? Tarquin’s supposed to be Nola’s man!” 

Lowell, not one to gossip about Tarquin and Elysia’s business but unable to help himself with Nola’s, retorted, Gage, you should know the real score between Tarquin and Ms. Slater. Some things are better left unsaid. Wouldn’t want to upset Tarquin. Bad for you, Ms. Slater, and the whole Slater family.” 

With a cordial tip of his hat, Lowell excused himself from Gage’s grasp and strode off

Gage’s face darkened. Ignoring his own discomfort, he whipped out his phone and dialed Nola

Nola, we’ve got a situation! A big one! Tarquin kissed another woman!”

In the VIP lounge, the atmosphere buzzed with chatter and laughter

As Tarquin entered, the crowd rose to greet him. Hey, Tarquin!” 

He nodded, signaling them to carry on. He made a beeline for the central seat, sat down, crossed his legs, and lit a cigarette

Keaton Huber, noticing his friend’s grim expression, asked, What’s got you down? You finally decide to come out and you’re still sulking?” 

Tarquin’s mind was elsewhere, troubled by the memory of Elysia’s kiss. He dodged the question, instead asking, How’s Corbin doing?” 

Corbin, Keaton’s nephew, was still in the hospital

Keaton replied, He was asleep when I visited this afternoon. My sister said he had an episode today and ran into traffic in a fit. Lucky for us, a knowledgeable young lady was there. OtherwiseWell, how’s Elijah been?” 

Tarquin flicked ash from his cigarette. Same old.” 

Don’t beat yourself up,Keaton advised. Benjamin says miracles happen, especially with psychological issues. They’re young. Who knows? They might outgrow it.” 

But Tarquin knew better. Corbin’s trauma was from a kidnapping, while Elijahhis was a deep yearning for his mother

Healing the mind required the right medicine, and if Corbin could face his fears, he might 

well recover

Elijah, however, was a different story. Without finding his birth mother, his condition would likely only worsen

Keaton !ined in, whispering teasingly, You smell like a woman’s perfume. Got a lady friend?” 

Keaton’s reputation as a ladiesman made him particularly attuned to such details

Tarquin snapped back to the present and frowned. No.” 

So why do you smell like perfume? It’s a pleasant, fruity scent. Highend ladiesperfume, very unique, like a limited editionWhoever wears it is no ordinary woman. Spill itwho’s the heiress? After all these years, no one’s managed to get close, and now someone’s succeeded? What makes her different?”
