A another look at the next Neighbor from Hell novel, Fire & Brimstone…
“Son of a bitch!” he heard the lovely shout accompanied by the sound of what he assumed was his apartment door slamming shut.
“Wow, she sounds mad,” Melanie said from the next room.
“I can’t imagine why,” he drawled as he stole Rebecca’s pillow and shoved it behind his head, deciding that he might as well be comfortable during his last moments alive.
“What did you do?” the ever nosy woman asked with absolutely no shame, making him chuckle.
“Leveled the playing field,” he said, knowing that his partner in crime would understand.
“She’s going to kill you.”
“Probably,” he said, unconcerned over his impending doom.
“You!” Rebecca said, choking out that one word as she stood in her doorway, glaring at him in a way that told him that his balls might very well be in danger this very night.
“Yes, my love?” he said with a smile, simply to piss the woman off to return the favor.
“You,” she repeated, since that was obviously all she could manage at the moment.
“Is something amiss, my love?” he asked, copying that innocent little look that she’d used on him a hundred times over in the last five years.
“You had no right,” she finally managed to get out.
“And what exactly didn’t I have a right to do, hmm?”
“You know what you did!” she snapped, quickly losing her temper once again and giving him such joy, because it was rather nice to see the tables turned on her for once.
“I don’t!” their audience yelled.
