Portia’s green-eyed lady

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Green-Eyed Lady.”

Beware the green-eyed monster!

I think anyone who has read Thrice Burned by now knows that even our favourite detective gets jealous.

The truth is that despite her attempts to embrace her introverted nature, Portia manages to surround herself with people worthy of being jealous of.

Annie Coleson for example is a petite gorgeous fashionable blonde who has capture the attention of Brian … Portia’s best friend. Not only that but Annie seems to have this innate quality of making everyone who meets her LOVE her. Who wouldn’t be jealous of such a bundle of happy?

And then there’s Gavin Whitaker, a brilliant medical examiner who has worked his entire life to raise himself up from his poor orphan beginnings with none of the help that Portia has benefited from in her life. Neither the loving mother nor the rich grandmother were in his corner. No, Whitaker is a self-made man who on several occasions will show-up the young detective with his superior skills around death.

Even Portia must beware the green-eyed monster!
