Beautiful Felon

Buck raised the coffee cup to his lips and noticed that his hand was trembling. Just slightly trembling. Jackie was busy pouring herself a cup, so she didn’t notice when Buck, in a moment of self-consciousness, paused,to steady his hand by resting the rim of the coffee mug on his lower lip for a moment. The coffee smelled powerfully strong.

He smiled at Jackie as she leaned over her cup and poured a little cream into its waiting rim. My God, he thought, she is the most beautiful felon I have ever seen.
