Example text

You said the other night, you could be tempted. ’ She disengaged her arm, her brown eyes suddenly alert. ’ He hesitated, wondering if he could trust her. ’ he asked, staring at her. ‘I want it,’ she said. ’ Again he hesitated, then urged on because he was sure he couldn’t do this thing alone, he said, ‘I’m talking about the payroll. ’ She stared at him for a long moment, her face suddenly expressionless, then she said quietly, ‘Did I? ’ ‘Why not? ’ She moved away, putting the ironing board back into a closet.

His blue eyes gleamed viciously, but only for a moment, then he shrugged and got into bed. He turned off the light. He lay in the darkness, his mind busy. So she wasn’t to be had all that easily, he said to himself. Well, never mind, all my life I have had to wait. What I don’t get today, I’ll get tomorrow. If I were in your position as manager of the bank, I know I would be tempted to steal all the money you must handle, she had said. Had she been joking? If he could dream up a safe way to get that payroll, he would have to have help.

The click of the light switch told him she had turned out the light. She was interesting, he thought. She had that something that could compensate him for the dreariness of this job and the town. He had an idea she might be easy, but he wasn’t entirely sure. That amused expression he had seen in her eyes warned him it would be unwise to rush anything. He stubbed out his cigarette, then settled himself once again in bed. He turned off the light. It was when he was enclosed by darkness that his stifling fear of failure, his pressing need for money, his realisation that unless he broke out of this rut, he would never get anywhere, crowded in on him as it did every night when he turned off the light.
