With Es in the kitchen cleaning up from dinner, I settle into my recliner, listening to Jake, but I’m having my doubts if he can pull this off. I may need to handle this one myself.

“Carl, man, you’ve got to chill. I told you I’m taking care of it. Heidi—she’s got this. She knows what she’s doing. Heidi is a pro influencer with millions of followers. Trust me. She’ll post a pic on her Insta of them together, and Edward won’t be able to deny it. They have history together.”

I reach for my beer, taking a sip. “The sooner, the better.”

“I know, man. I know. They’ll break up, and he’ll be on a plane to Calgary faster than you can say Stanley Cup Champ.”

“Calgary is still interested?”

“Oh, yeah. I told them there is only one thing keeping him in Dallas, and we’re working on eliminating it.”

Dr. Bella Swan.

She’s proving to be a bigger obstacle than I anticipated.

I glance at the television, where they’re going through a recap of the day’s scores, then lower my voice. “Jake, we should have paid her.”

“Nah. Heidi isn’t like that. Plus, she’s still got a thing for him. We got to use that. Have patience. She’ll come through.”

“Send me the picture once it’s posted,” I demand.

“You got it. I’ll drop it into a few wags gossip boards too. They’ll take it from there, doing the work for us. We’ll be counting that five mill before you know it. Easy money, man. Easy money.”
