I'm continuing with A Chaunce of Riches - Ben has been hired as a bodyguard for a rich widow and her son. In a seemingly cruel coincidence, last week Ben and Samantha saw each other for the first time after many years. (creative punctuation has been used)
When she was sure her voice could sound nearly normal, she smiled sweetly, “It’s good to see you again Ben.” It was difficult to look at him and not remember things she had no right to remember; she absentmindedly played with one of the short tousled curls that framed her face.
He couldn’t ignore the diamond encrusted wedding band she wore on her left hand, he chuckled softly and cynically, “Well, now I know why you left.”
“What do you mean?”
“I never realized how much money meant to you,” he couldn’t help it, he would always be bitter. “When I heard that you got married and left for Europe, I thought it was because you thought I could never be a whole man again, but I really thought you would have at least waited to see. Now I understand, he probably flashed some bills in your face, that was all that it took, wasn’t it?”

The day that Ben Johnson was hired as a bodyguard for some rich widow and her kid, he never expected to be working for the woman who had abandoned him just when he had needed her the most so many years before. Damn it all, he still wanted her. Samantha Chaunce never thought she would see him again. She never thought she would have to explain why she married the rich man over the man she had sworn she once loved. And she certainly never expected to find out that her rich husband had been murdered and fingers were pointing to her former lover.
