They had gone, and he would have to start all over again. It had been a long, successful partnership as lovers, and as partners in crime. But now, it was over, and he needed a new partner. She could be the one, he thought, but he had to be sure. He always had to be sure, even when he was certain.
He sat there and laughed silently, and then a bit more, his body shaking with laughter.

That’s when he heard her laugh. He didn’t want to turn around; he knew just what he’d see and he could face anything but that.
Poison Ivy stood behind him, laughing as she twined her body around him. “It’s our turn now,” she said, licking his neck.
