Key To My Heart



♣ ♥ ♣ 

“SORRY?” He couldn’t have heard correctly, could he?

“Oh, it wasn’t just him, but what does that matter now?” Patti shrugged and cracked open another groundnut bud.

She hadn’t told him without purpose. She had done it because it was her experience that men lost interest in a woman who’d been previously married. Except for Ben—but then he wasn’t entirely serious about her either.

“You have been married before?”

She threw him a glance. “Yes. For two good years.” It had been for twenty-one months, but why bother with the exactitude of details?

“I see.” He didn’t at all. No, he didn’t. And he didn’t like that he was feeling… what exactly was he feeling? “So you were married and obviously came out of it bitter, and wounded. Little wonder you’re always antagonistic towards me. I’m paying for the sin of another man. The rest of us men will have to pay for the sin of this one man, right?”

“First thing, I’m not bitter. And no one is paying for anything, neither am I antagonistic towards you…”

“Oh, but you are.” Isidore broke in, irritated afresh. And with her, this time. “But I recall now that you’re quite friendly with Ben. You obviously don’t have a problem with him being a man and having some kind of interest in you.”

“Ben doesn’t really have any interest in me. It is all circumstantial. I am without a partner and so he figures he should try his hand.”

“Is that so?” Why the dismissive tone irritated him even more, Isidore did not know. “And are you trying your hand with him too? Because as far as the gossip mill have told me, he too is without a partner.”

“I just told you, I have no interest, none whatsoever, in any man.” Patti dumped the shells of groundnut in the bucket provided for it and dusted off her hands. “I don’t know what you’re after, Dr Isidore, but I should warn you that you would only be harming yourself if you waste your time building up any hopes where I’m concerned.”

“And what makes you think that I will be building any hopes where you’re concerned?”

Patti looked at him. “I know how men like you think. City-bred men only out to seduce, conquer and toss aide a woman when done.”

“Is that what he did—seduced, conquered you and tossed you aside when he was done?”
