The sound of a door slamming shut brought their world to a crushing end. Quade jerked his hand free and sat upright.
"I'll be in there in a minute, Delaney," Harvey called from the office through the closed door.
Maybe he'd guessed at her true intentions for visiting Quade. Or maybe he was just being polite as always. It didn't matter. Nothing mattered except that her time with Quade was over. Her heart broke into a thousand pieces, and she felt every crack and splinter inside her chest.
Quade placed a kiss at her temple, then stood up. She dropped the remainder of the roll on the tray in the floor and fumbled with the buttons at her bodice, fastening them until she reached the high neck. Her skin burned where he'd touched, as if he'd branded her. She ached to be in Quade's arms again, but there was no more time for them.
Quade held out his hand to her. "It's time to go, sweetheart."
"No!" The word left her mouth in an outburst of anger and frustration. "No, Quade, I won't go."
"You have to. You know that." He took her hand and forced her to her feet and into his arms. "What would the sheriff say when he returned tomorrow morning and found his darling daughter in the arms of the man he has to hang at noon?"
