Excerpt: Suddenly Beautiful by Boone Brux
“I can’t give up my sources.” The man’s gaze tracked to Nikki’s belly. “You don’t look pregnant.”
“Because I’m not, you idiot.” She knew exactly who the paparazzo’s informant was. It looked like she’d be commencing Operation Butt Sweat-Unibrow after all.
“But you two are in a relationship—right?” He pointed a stubby finger at her and Tor. “I know what I saw when I walked in.”
“What you saw was me and my assistant talking about today’s schedule.” Tor shoved the camera into Herbert’s stomach and moved forward, crowding the man back into the elevator. “Leave.”
Nikki picked up the phone and dialed security’s extension. “A short man with a camera and an ugly yellow jacket will be getting off the elevator in a minute. Please escort him from the premises and make sure he doesn’t return.”
She pressed the phone back onto its cradle, not waiting to hear the guard’s answer. Tor reached in the elevator and punched one of the buttons. As the doors slid shut, he released the camera and stepped back, sealing Herbert inside.
“Can you believe the nerve of some people?” Nikki plopped back down in her chair.
Tor turned and stared at her. “You’re not, are you?”
She furrowed her brow. “Not what?”
“Pregnant.” He approached her desk. “You’d tell me, wouldn’t you?”
“No, I’m not pregnant.” Though now that he said it, she supposed she could be. They’d used protection in the elevator, but the rest of the night had been free loving. “This is one of Demetria’s tricks.”
“But—” He shoved his hands in his pockets. “You’d tell me if you were, right?”
Would she tell him? The thought of having Tor’s child sent a thrill through her, but a child wasn’t the reason she wanted him to be in a relationship with her. In an effort to avoid directly lying to him, she answered his question with a question. “It would be a little difficult to hide, don’t you think?”
