FB - Chapter 13 Teaser
Just then, I saw Esme come through the door. I was hoping she hadn’t heard anything I’d said, but my hopes were dashed when I saw her face. Turning to her, I said in the calmest voice I could manage, “Thank you for dinner, it was delicious as always.” Without saying another word to my uncle, I walked to my car and got in.
Isabella sensed my mood and was incredibly still. I waited until I’d settled my emotions before saying. “You did well today, Isabella. I’m very proud of you.”
“Thank you, Master,” she said, but I noticed her posture had not relaxed in the least.
“What’s on your mind?”
“Did I…” she paused. “Did I do something to upset him?”
At her question, I felt my anger at my uncle come to the surface once again. She did not need this. “No. He was upset with me. You did nothing wrong.”
