Earning Forgiveness Ch. 05byMechanicalAngel©
Without a word, he climbed into the car and started the engine. Emma was privately relieved. If he was going to spend most of his time ignoring her, she thought she might be able to cope.

Emma glanced nervously at the man, but she was no longer with James and William, and no-one had told her that their rules would still apply. She reached out to the food and started to eat it with her hands. She was comforted when he didn't tell her to stop.

He appeared charming and attractive; the kind of man that might be able to tempt a girl to infidelity. They turned and greeted him warmly, and William handed him some money. "There's your share," he said genially. "Feel free to count it."
The man nodded and sat down to check his pile of cash. "We did well," he said, sounding pleased.
"Yes, and next time you can do more to earn it," James said. "You've been the catalyst twice in a row now. It's your turn to take part in the training."
