“I’m proud of you, Janelle,” Silas said once they were back in his car.
“Thank you.” She hadn’t been sure what she was going to do when she got to the agency, but when she’d seen Brad’s lying face, she’d gone for the direct approach, brooking no further argument. “But I’m afraid the hard talks aren’t over yet, Silas.” She gave him a sideways look.
He glanced at her. “After your performance back there, I think I’m a little scared.”
She laughed out loud. “You should be because I have a lot more anger to go around.”
“Anger at me? I thought we were making progress?”
“We are, but that doesn’t mean I suddenly have amnesia about the last six years. Why didn’t you fight harder for me? You could have gotten in touch sooner, and tried to reach me directly. You certainly made your presence today known.”
“I’m in a different place than I was back then.”
“Don’t, don’t take the easy way out,” Janelle replied. “Were you so threatened by my success that you didn’t even want to try? Could only one Tucker be on top?”
“If that isn’t the pot calling the kettle black,” Silas shot back. “The door swings both ways. I made attempts as late as last year after Mr. Gibson’s diagnosis to reach you. But you, you carried on with your life as if what we had meant nothing. What do you have to say about that?”
“It means we’re back at square one. Perhaps it’s time I finally signed those divorce papers.”
