From "Crucifying Angel" by P.I. Barrington

Future Imperfect Book One: Crucifying AngelPayce Halligan nearly repeats the action that killed her former partner and fiance'...

Gavin walked out into the hall, a towel around his waist.  He reached down and pulled the dangling gun from her hand.

"What are you doing?" he asked.

"What am I doing?"  She half-screamed.  "What are you doing?  I almost killed you — I al-most killed you!"  Payce peeled herself off the wall and gave vent to her fear-crazed anger.  "You stupid, stupid man — what are you doing in my shower?"

"I thought this was the guest shower," Gavin answered simply.  "I didn't think you'd appreciate my using your master bath."

"My master bath—" She stopped, suddenly realizing the situation.  She backed away from him, intensely aware of his nearness.  "Just… just get dressed," she mumbled, walking past him back down the hall.  She stopped after three steps and turned back to him.  "And give me that!"  She snatched the gun from his hand.  Then she stomped away toward her bedroom, ignoring his laughter at her back.
