Edward Dalton savored the whisper of a warm breeze on his neck as he gazed down ten stories at the quiet parking lot. Summer had taken hold of the city below. Even though he was on duty, this moment on the rooftop served as a welcome respite from the heat.
Dalton had spent most of the last few years watching over Westley Worthington in one from or another, as his friend and as the head of security for Worthington Enterprises. Now, he was literally watching over him. He waited for West to get into position, so he could take out the lights.
Dalton peered through the scope of his rifle. No movement in the shadows below, and his heightened senses weren’t picking up anything special. Only the usual smells of Glacier City - smog, sweat and cooking spices, and rising from the subway, the unique blend of bad things and bleach that roiled below the street.
Crime had exploded in Glacier City these past few weeks, and the police were losing control of the streets. West and Dalton were taking serious action to help stem the surge of atrocities. But all their efforts were beginning to feel like a finger in the dam.
Ever since West had blown up at Cordelia, and sent her and her wheelchair-bound sister packing, he had been a broken man, seeking distraction at every turn.
Cordelia Cross was a one in a million woman. She was smart, but with a kindness that was almost maternal. And although she had a no-nonsense way about her, and certainly wasn’t one to dress for her assets, as soon as you got to know her you couldn’t stop noticing how beautiful she was. That inner beauty glowed through everything she did, and in Dalton’s eyes she was radiant.
Dalton had watched West grow from a reckless playboy into something resembling a man through Cordelia’s friendship. He figured it was only a matter of time before they came to their senses and fell in love.
