Even his voice felt like a hard, sudden slap across her face. She felt herself shudder.
And then they were coming through the door, all bustle and expectation. Zoe beaming, her cheeks reddened from the cold outside. ‘Hiya……’ Then he followed her in, grinning.
It was like a stab in her heart.
For just an instant she felt herself freeze, too stunned to speak or move.

Four months since she had allowed him to humiliate and degrade her beyond her previous wild imaginings.
Four months since he made her betray everything she loved and held dear.
And now here he was, in her kitchen. Grinning at her.
With her daughter.
