In truth, though, Dex has been somewhat subdued. I wonder if I have anything to do with his mood. Maybe it bothered him, watching me with Marcus. Not full-blown jealousy, just the territorial pangs that I experienced. Or perhaps he’s only thinking about Darcy, seeing her for the controlling person she is. I’ve always been aware of Darcy’s demands— you can’t miss them—-but lately, I have been less tolerant of her. I am tired of her always getting her way. Maybe Dex feels the same.
