Eve pushed open the door to the office and peered inside. She heard someone down on the floor behind the desk. “Julian?” she called.

“No, sister dear, it’s just me,” Liz answered, standing up with a pile of papers in her hands. “Now let me guess, TC wasn’t home, so you figured you would give your lover Julian a try?”

Eve closed her eyes to help control the seething anger inside of her. “I just need to find him, that’s all, Liz. You just make sure that no matter what happens, you are far away from TC. There’s nothing you could do but hurt him, Liz.”

“No, that’s you, Eve. I could never hurt him. TC needs me. He loves me!” she said, smiling.

Eve shook her head at her deluded sister and left the room.
