Karen flicked a glance at Lily noting that Maria’s lackey still had her usual smirk on.
“It’s a simple question,” Maria said, the purr in her voice belying the malice in her eyes. “Did you fuck Jeff or didn’t you?”
Karen stopped herself from gnawing on her lower lip, a bad habit she’d been trying all year to break. As tests went, this one was a doozy. Karen knew that if she said yes she’d lose favor for sleeping with another Ranger’s boyfriend. If she said no, she would have failed the initial test that tasked her with finding out if Jeff was loyal to Lily. Karen met Maria’s eyes.
“What did Jeff say when you asked him?”
Karen startled when Maria threw back her head and laughed.
“I told you this pledge was smarter than she looked,” Maria said, turning her sharp eyed gaze on the now frowning Lily.
