"Why didnt you ever stop him?" Tom asked her. "Or at least tell me about it so I could?"She didnt answer Tom right away, you could almost see her picking through lie after lie in her mind, and he abruptly said, "Maybe you figured once he killed me, youd have everyone working for you."Couldnt help wondering then if she hadnt helped in some way to drive Rosa mad, if only to get rid of her as well as Tom and Joanie. Sarah kicked my foot before I got more than a word of that out loud."So you think he wants to kill you," Becky said."Oh, yeah," Tom said, too casually. "Hes had that idea in his head for a while now. Thats why I took his gun after that fight with Dave. So he couldnt shoot either one of us."She averted her eyes, but we all knew whod planted the seed.
