Madeline looked up. “Hello.”
“Such a beautiful woman shouldn’t eat lunch alone. May I join you?”
“I’m waiting for someone.”
“And I’m here.” The man reached for the chair, but a hand stopped him. “Who are you?”
Paul glared at him. “I’m the someone she’s waiting for.”
“Aren’t you a little old for her?”
He pulled aside his jacket, revealing his gun. “Beat it.” Satisfied, he sat down.
“Was that really necessary?” she asked.
“What, I can’t protect my girlfriend?”
“As long as you realize I can kill him with one hand. Still…” She smiled. “I appreciate the gesture.”
