Diamond found that moment to appear at the doorway. “Was I interrupting something?”
Nick looked from him to Diamond and cursed.
“Yes, you were,” Rob answered irritated. “Didn’t I tell you to go in the bathroom?”
“I did,” she said flippantly.
“I must have forgotten to tell you to stay.”
Diamond only smiled mischievously and walked up to Nick, to outstretch her hand. “Hello, I’m Diamond.”
“I’m Nick, Deamon Chance’s probation officer.”
“Demon Chance?” she questioned.
Rob immediately corrected her knowing she most likely heard Nick wrong. “It’s pronounced De-a-mon. I don’t usually go by my father’s name since he was notoriously ruthless and evil.”
“With a name like that, I understand,” Diamond agreed.
Nick cleared his throat. “You don’t seem surprised I’m his probation officer.”
“What man in Detroit, doesn’t have one?” Diamond asked seriously, but then giggled. “Rob has made me aware of past problems he’s had with the law.”
“So he told you in detail he brutally raped a woman and beat a man almost to death with his fists? Has he told you that his temper has gotten him in so much trouble the majority of his life, he’s been ordered to a psychiatric facility as young as six years old? Has he told you about how he was implicated in the death of his pregnant mother and three siblings, and then tried to kill his father-“
“I think that’s enough,” Rob said seeing how shook up Diamond had begun to look.
“No it’s not, Rob. She needs to know the truth,” Nick stated.
“The truth, not what the motherfucking prosecuting attorney wanted everyone to believe, Nick. You of all people should be on my side. I wasn’t implicated ever, just accused.”
“I’m sure your father had the same story.”
Rob felt the surge of anger overcome him. Tightening up his fists, he prepared to beat the living shit out of Nick.
