CLAIRE

She had just been debriefed, made her statement and asked if there was anybody she could call to take her home. She had dialed Lizzy but her line was switched off. She’d decided to wait for a moment to see Owel before leaving.

Owel had handed them over to the backup that arrived at the hotel and headed out with his subordinate to Gerald’s house. As the team drove them out, she kept looking through the glass to know if she could see him; Davis and yes she saw him. Their eyes had communicated volumes as the car moved by. He’d given her a smile which melted the remaining part of her heart.
