She saw two things simultaneously. First, the woman, far from being raped, was clinging to the man and encouraging him with whimpering, pleading words in Spanish. And, second, the man was Jake Roper. The knowledge was like a blow to the chest. Air left her lungs in a rush, and she could only hang there, unable to move or breathe. The most incredible, unreasonable hurt filled her, and she tried to turn away, to leave quietly. She didn't want to see this, couldn't bear it— But her legs still wouldn't work.

They both smiled at her. "Si," Carmita said, relieved. " "He arrived just before dark, señora. He and his daughter. " Victoria and Emma looked at each other. A tinker, being new to Celia, might attract her like a cat to catnip.
