Excerpt from The Unspoken Truth by Lee Ryder

“So working on the Clayton case again?” Jackson asked coming into my office and giving me a quick peck on the lips. A pleasant warmth spread throughout my body. This happened every time he was near me. His presence always sent shivers down my spine.
“Yes, and no.” I answer. “She visited my dreams again last night.”
“I know,” Jackson, says looking at me. “You were crying in your sleep.”
“Why didn’t you wake me?” I asked.
“I did. You were so out of it you didn’t remember.”
“I love you, you know.” I said smiling up at him.
“I know.” He said kissing my cheek. Then he started to giggle.
“What?” I asked.
“I just got ketchup on your cheek, sorry.” He choked, dabbing at my cheek with a napkin.
I play punched him and said, “Really, officer, has no one given you lessons in chivalry?”
“Chivalry is dead.” He said laughing.
“Chivalry is dead.” Steven said as Jessica waited for him to open the door for her. She gave him a venomous look and stomped into the house. He grabbed her roughly by the arm causing her to cry out. “Don’t give me attitude, girl. You’re my property.” He growled. She yanked her arm away from him and stormed upstairs, slamming her door behind her and locking it. She examined her arm, which was already turning purple from his tight grasp. She quickly grabbed her valise from inside the closet and began throwing clothing into it. Damn him to hell!
“Lena!” Jackson’s voice breaks into my reverie. I snap back to reality looking at him with tear-filled eyes.
“Where did you go? Are you okay?” He asked taking both my hands in his, concern furrowing his brow.
I looked up to see Jessica standing in front of my desk. “She’s here.” I whispered.
“Who?” Jackson asked looking around.
“Jessica,” I answered quietly.
“What does she want?” He asked. “She’s just a missing woman, a runaway bride; isn’t she?”
“I-I think she was murdered.” I replied.
