The way he looked at me when he said it was even worse.“Keri!” he snapped. His eyes were clouded with anger, as he demanded that I answer him. “Who is Karrington?”“Come on Karrington,” Senior egged on in delight as he saw how much it tore Dreaux up to not know what was going on. Though Senior spilled the tea all over the goddamn place, it was my fault that the shit was hitting the fan because I should have talked to Dreaux sooner. “This is going to be so good. Go ahead, tell him."“I’m so sorry,” I apologized to him, as much as I hated to do this I had a job to do.
