Since Kate had showed up it had been nothin' but a wild ride. It was since mid-February that things got a little shifty. Whatever love drunk spell she'd been under had cost him an entire afternoon and a roll in the stable hay. He wasn't proud of it, but he also hadn't fessed up to Nicole. Each time he got the words to come out, he just thought about all the good she'd brought to his life. He was also still livin' under her roof. If he canned things with her he lost a place to stay and his job. It wasn't like he had the greatest of reputations either.
They'd been out for the afternoon when both their schedules were clear. He took her to lunch, it was nice and dandy. It had been months, perhaps Kate had gotten off her rocker and moved on to the next wealthy businessman she could find. She was good at being a leech. It seemed though these days he felt more of one to Nicole than he intended. He was settling into old habits, an' it was gonna blow up on his face eventually. They'd been headin' back to the apartment when there out of everyone in the city, his ex came into view. He tried to urge Nicole to go a different way, pretend there was some store he had to go in. He did like nicely tailored clothes. That wasn't a far stretch. Things got more sketchy when Kate actually spoke. She might have played polite but he knew better. He expected her to throw it out there in the open, but he should have known Kate wanted to play hardball. Let him writhe in the guilt and fess up. He couldn't be himself with that kind of thing sittin' heavy on him.
"Want some tea darlin'?" he asked once they'd gotten inside the apartment. He needed tea with a drop of whiskey is what he needed. She'd have known somethin' was up the moment he'd mentioned tea. Doc didn't drink tea.
