The blonde man circled around the stables, making his way back to the stand of trees east of the mansion. This was a competition and all that mattered was who won. Let the other idiots play fair.
Waiting and watching… a chill seeped into his bones.
Behind him… a sound… he turned around… a split second to regret.
“A splendid trophy, Audra… splendid!”
Turning her gaze to the new plaque over the fireplace… next to the stag head…
“I bagged that one just last week… bloody Yank was too predictable… no sport in it.”
