End of previous scene, followed by the link to the new scene:
A thought cut deep: What if you die tonight, and Susan goes back through the History folder on your browser, and sees where you’ve been? Her cheeks hot, she brought the computer back to life, deleted the trail of links, cleaned out the caches and the cookies.
Eschewing the treacherous fire, she finally heeded a commonsense requirement for food. She knew she would pay for the orgy with days. She forced extra water, made herself stretch—it might help. Some. In bed, she read Dorothy Sayers, deliberately choosing a section on bell changes in The Nine Tailors, until her eyes closed.
