DELETED SCENE FOUR
TEARS OF TESS
Copyright PEPPER WINTERS
Suzette clapped her hands, her pristine maid’s uniform of white and black looking very French and sexy. I admired her for wearing something like that, even if it was house hold protocol. I rented a maids uniform once to surprise Brax. He laughed and said Halloween wasn’t for another two months.
I burned it ceremoniously when he went to work. Brax didn’t need gimmicks to love me. He just needed me. My eyes hurt with tears as Suzette bounced over.
“You’re coming to the markets with me. I need to grab a few more things for dinner.”
My entire body snapped to attention. Out? Freedom? As in out of the house? Around people? My soul rejoiced but I forced myself to look nonchalant. She mustn’t know how eager I was to leave her behind. I think in some way she expected me to stay. Forever. Naïve woman.
