ANOTHER WORLD TODAY #72-2
"It's good to see you again," Grant told Sharlene softly, coming up behind her, gently resting a hand on her shoulder. When Sharlene turned around, it was the first time the two of them stood face to face in over a decade. "I'm so sorry it had to be under these circumstances."
"Once," Sharlene said, because honestly she could think of nothing else. "John thought you might have been Gregory's father."
"I remember. He came and asked me flat out."
"And you," Sharlene sighed, indicating they could have expected nothing less. "Decided not to tell him that would be impossible, that we'd never slept together. Then, anyway."
"A man does have his pride," Grant shrugged apologetically and took Sharlene's hand. "I don't have the words to express — "
"Then don't. Please. I've had enough words today. None of them mean a damn thing."
"Is there anything I can do for you? Anything at all?"
"Help me toss your new client — and the rest of them — into jail, then throw away the key. Yes, Hamilton told me you were representing Sarah. She helped kill my son."
"That's not how she sees it," Grant attempted to explain.
"I don't give a damn how she sees it," Sharlene yanked her arm away. "And if you think that playing on our past relationship will help you in getting me to go easy on those — they came! Can you believe the unmitigated gall? All five of them actually showed up at my son's funeral!"
