This is a sneaky snippet from Book 3 of The Yakuza and the English Teacher series. I have just about finished with the proofreading (re-edit). It takes place toward the end of the book.
Ken stopped his pacing and stared straight at him. “If I hadn’t rescued you, you’d be fucking dead.” Fury burned in his eyes as they narrowed. “And don’t you dare say, that it would be better.”
He shrugged his shoulders. Ken was right he would be dead, and he didn’t want to point out that it would have been better. Better than this world where his emotions lay scattered across the streets of Kyoto waiting to be blown away by the monsoon winds. Jamie was sick of the hot and cold responses from Gou. Words spoken not aligning with flicker of emotions in his eyes – if what he saw was real and not just what he wanted to see. As far as Jamie was concerned, dead or gone, it didn’t matter, the result was the same. He wouldn’t be with Gou.
