Tears pricked your eyes.
“Bucky,” you said, voice wavering. “It isn’t what it looks like.”
He looked down at the sapphire before throwing it back in the duffel bag. “Then explain it to me,” he said, anger simmering.
You looked down at your feet and crossed your arms over your chest. You weren’t sure what part of the story to tell him. But you didn’t want to lie to him either.
“Julian didn’t hide the bag behind the dumpster like I had said,” you sighed heavily, looking up at Bucky’s angry face. “He buried the bag in an empty lot across the street from the jewelry store. I’m still not sure why he had really told where it was, but he wasn’t lying. I went there that night and dug it up.”
Bucky was staring you, barely blinking, “Why?”
“I’m a writer,” you shrugged. “Curiosity is our… thing.”
He dropped the bag on the bed before rubbing his forehead with his metal hand. “Why do you still have the bag?” He asked, looking at you again. “What were you planning to do with it?”
“I had fully intended to turn it over to the police,” you said, stepping closer to Bucky. “But I got scared. I didn’t want them to think that I was a part of the robbery. The longer and longer I had it, the more it made me look guilty.”
“Well now I know why those men were after you,” Bucky said snidely.
You reached a hand out to him, but he stepped away. “Bucky, please don’t…”
He shook his head at you, “You had so many chances today to tell me the damn truth.” The hurt was clearly etched on his face.
