WIDOW’S WEB EXCERPT:
With our war games finished, it was time for me to collect my prize—dinner at Underwood’s.
The next night, Owen and I took his Mercedes Benz over to the restaurant, which was located in a classy older building in the city’s financial district. Owen pulled up to the sidewalk where a crimson awning bore the restaurant’s name, and we got out of the car. While he handed the keys off to a valet, I stood on the sidewalk and reached out with my Stone magic, curious about what I might hear. The brick of the building whispered about money, power, and plots, mixed with lighter notes of dishes and silverware tinkling together. Not unpleasant sounds, but ones that told me just how many dark, deadly schemes had been hatched here over dinner, dessert, and a nice bottle of wine.
Owen took my arm, and we went inside and rode the elevator up to the third and top floor, where the maître d’ escorted us to a corner table. Crimson linens covered the table, which had been set with fine white china, delicate wine glasses, and silverware that had a higher polished luster than some diamond rings. Three crimson candles shaped like forks burned in a crystal candelabra in the center of the table. The fork was the restaurant’s rune, representing all the good meals that could be had here, and the symbol was etched into the plates and silverware, as well as being stitched into the linens in crimson thread.
A waiter took our drink orders—whiskey for Owen and a gin and tonic for me—and handed us each a leather-bound menu. No prices were listed on the creamy white pages. Underwood’s was Ashland’s fanciest and most expensive restaurant, the kind of highfalutin place that charged you an exorbitant amount just for drinking tap water—and even more if you wanted a refill. But Finn was paying tonight, so I had no qualms about ordering whatever I wanted and enjoying every single sip of it.
“Too bad Finn and Bria couldn’t make it,” Owen said.
I snorted. “Please. Finn could have put off his meeting if he’d really wanted to. He just didn’t want to sit through dinner and listen to me gloat about how I’d won our contest and ruined his suit. Can’t say I blame him.”
“Well, then, I suppose you’ll just have to make do with my company tonight,” Owen teased.
I reached over and threaded my fingers through his, enjoying the warmth of his skin against mine. “Oh, I think I can manage.”
