Blurb: He lives in the shadows of the law. Now, wounded and stranded in the city after a job only he could do, he has no qualms about climbing through the window his old lover left open—or stealing his shampoo, at that. He has, however, not taken into account the possibility of being surprised in the shower.

Three years is a long time to go between visits, especially if you've left so much anger and hurt and desire unresolved. They try to negotiate a truce for one night—over Chinese takeaway leftovers and apples, and between the sheets.

Please note: This story does not contain a Happily Ever After (HEA) ending. The ending is bittersweet, which may not be the preference for some reviewers.

Review: At first I didn’t understand how the title was going to come into play. It was part of the charm of this otherwise haunting story. It’s intimate and it’s sexy in a dark foreboding way. It’s super short and so difficult to give too many details without spoiling the story for you. There are parts that left me a little confused, but the part that mattered, (I don’t think I ever knew their names. It’s first person so it’s either he or I in the telling of the story. It’s what made the story eerie and dark. Dangerous yet sexy. The mysteriousness of it all really worked) the encounter between the two characters was intimate and personal and I enjoyed reading this short story.
