“So you’re really here to see Thorn?” Havel asked, sitting back at his desk. He turned his chair, then pulled out the chair belonging to the woman who had gone to get Micah Thorn and patted it.
Laura sat down. It seemed like the friendly thing to do. Besides, she did appreciate the coffee. “I really am.”
“Why? I mean…why you?”
“Why not me?” she asked cautiously.
Havel lifted his hand toward her, then let it fall. “Well, look at you. You’re beautiful.”
Someone sniggered in the far corner and she looked around, surprised.
The grey haired man looked up. “You’re not going to get her to dinner with an approach like that.”
Laura looked at Havel, startled. Then she gave him what she hoped was a polite smile. “You’re very sweet.”
Havel wrinkled his nose. “That’s what every guy wants to hear, that he’s sweet.”
“Give up, Havel,” the grey-haired man said. “Ms. Hyland keeps company with Oskar Carey.”
There was a small silence. Havel stared at her while Laura felt her cheeks burn. “Groundman for the Blues?” he said, sounding impressed.
“You know who I am?” she asked, directing the question at everyone there. “I didn’t tell you my name.”
“You didn’t have to,” the grey-haired man said. He ran his hands over the desk then tapped it. On the screen in front of her appeared one of the public pictures of her and Oskar, taken at the arena just after the end of a game. “I remember faces,” the grey-haired man added. “Especially ones like yours.”
“Hoping for dinner yourself, Amil?” Havel asked.
The laughter cut off, like a recording halted in mid-stream.
Laura heard Havel draw in a quick breath. She swivelled on the chair to look behind her.
Micah Thorne was standing just inside the door at the back of the room, studying her.
There was a scowl on his face.
