“Enjoy your stay in Miami.” He said, dropping his hand and moving away.
Marley blinked several times, feeling like an idiot.

He gave her a strange look. The corner of his mouth twitched again or maybe she imagined it.
“Perhaps, Agent.” His head dipped slightly in dismissal. “I trust you can let yourself out.
