Kahlan’s head was pounding. How drunk had she gotten the night before. She could feel Richard’s strong and firm chest against her back and she smiled. At least she had still ended up in the bed of the man she loved, despite how drunk she had been.
Lifting her head from the pillow, Kahlan turned to the side and smiled down at him. Just as she leaned down to kiss him awake, Kahlan caught sight of blonde hair and a woman’s naked body pressed behind Richard. “Cara!" She squealed as she shook Richard awake.
He groaned groggily and rubbed his eyes. "Kahlan what’s going on?”
Kahlan pointed in the direction of the blonde woman as she sat up. She wasn’t Cara and Kahlan’s brow scrunched in confusion. “Who are you and what are you doing in our bed?" Kahlan looked right over the head of her fiance and met the woman’s blue eyes. For not the first time since waking up, Kahlan wondered exactly how drunk she had been that night.
The blonde woman scoffed and shook her head before rising from the bed. Placing her hands on her hips as her long blonde hair fell about her shoulders. "How drunk were you? I told you last night my name is Sarah Walker." She rolled her eyes and plucked her bra from the lampshade as Kahlan and Richard continued to watch her.
"That doesn’t answer my question,” Kahlan said before punching Richard for gaping at the naked blonde. “What are you doing here?”
Sarah chuckled as she started to dress. “I think you know exactly what I’m doing here and what we did last night." She shrugged slightly then smiled. "But of course you wouldn’t stop calling me Cara. Neither of you did. Perhaps next time you should just find her.”
Kahlan blushed and Richard just sat there gaping at Sarah as she dressed. Neither of them could believe this but Kahlan was certain of one thing. Cara could never know. This was a secret they would be taking to their graves.
