His Arrival Came As A Surprise
It was someone she had never met- one of her husband’s long-lost relatives. He’d been serving a twelve-year sentence for racketeering and had only been released a few days earlier.
Their past was a part of her husband’s history, something he hadn’t revealed to her, so it’s not a surprise that he didn’t want her to meet the man, at least not then. He didn’t want the man in or around his shop at that particular moment either, and he tried to avoid it at all cost. He asked the man to meet him somewhere else so they could talk about what had happened between them, but the man had something else in mind.
