Our heroine has been questioned by the police and released. The diamond is hidden in her skirt.
A vision of Lover Boy filled my mind. He'd looked uncomfortable most of the evening. Like he really did not enjoy being there. I guess if you've attended a hundred parties at large manor houses with fabulous food and free booze, it does get boring after a while. The only time I'd witnessed him smile was when he accepted a drink from me or asked for one.
He had delicious, dark brown eyes, like deep rich chocolate. And that scar on his jawline – so sexy. I wanted to rub the tip of my tongue along it. It would be scratchy with the slight stubble of his unshaven jaw, but that would only add to the eroticism of the movement. He had strong-looking hands. I'd shivered as I watched him wrap his fingers around the glass. The curve of his lips as he smiled and nodded a grateful thank you.
He'd spent the evening talking to several women and men, but try as hard as I could, I couldn't visualize a wedding ring. That was good.
Sadly, as I had to wait in the back of the kitchen, I had no idea if Lover Boy went home alone. I hoped he did. And I fantasized that he'd dream about me in my little maid's outfit. I was wishing I could have the same hot dream.
Maybe, if the Fates aligned, I'd see him again. Like in Monte Carlo in a few days.
Two jobs in one trip to Europe. The Gods were on my side.
The bus jerked and my head bounced against the glass. I opened my eyes. We were back in London at the parking lot. I yawned and shot off the bus and into the caterer's building. I flipped the combination on my locker, grabbed my clothes and hurried into the ladies' room. Slipping the diamond out of the hem of my dress, I popped it into the pouch in the side of my bra then I stitched up the hem of the skirt, dressed, returned the uniform to Mr. Chapman and accepted my paycheck for the night's work.
I put my coat on and walked to the bus stop. A few of the other servers also waited. None spoke to me. The bus slowed and stopped. I climbed aboard and returned to my apartment then did a quick change from green eyes and short red hair to shoulder-length blonde with blue eyes. Colored contacts and wigs are my best friends. I also added a padded belly which made me look about six months pregnant. I grabbed my coat and keys and headed back outside. I had one more job, deliver the diamond. Well, two jobs – deliver the diamond and get paid.
