What happened in chapter fifteen - chapter nineteen?
Raelyn finally gets the chance to introduce Damien to all of her friends when they go out one evening. A man named Tim, who works with Raelyn, is also there and Iris invites him to join them. This makes Raelyn and Damien a little uncomfortable, as Tim has a massive thing for Raelyn.
Damien makes it clear to Tim that Raelyn is spoken for and even puts on a show while dancing with her. Something he is really, really good at doing.
After they dance, Raelyn starts feeling light headed and clammy. She runs into the bathroom where she runs into Cale’s ex. Sage tells Raelyn she was never trying to start a family with Cale. And that Damien was helping her get on track and she hopes there might be something between the two of them.
Raelyn accuses Damien of sleeping with Sage and he tells the the whole story. About how he helped Sage out, let her stay in one of his rental homes, and that Sage had been in love with Damien for years, but nothing was going on.
Later that night Damien’s nephew, William, shows up - his step father has been beating him again. Raelyn decides to leave Damien alone for a few days while he works things out with his nephew.
- His mouth was on me before I could hit him with another sassy comeback.
- Did you have a feeling that Cale was lying to Raelyn about why he stole the money?
