“Yes. Any idea why whoever did this… did this?”

“To be honest, I don’t really know, Claire. I guess that’s just how me and Kelvin operate.”
“Yes. What she said.”
“Well, I won’t stop you. If you-”
Charles opened the door and walked in. His face showed a mix of worry, anger, and excitement. Dominica greeted him as she had greeted Kelvin.
“Hey. You’ve seen what happened?”
“Oh, yeah, the president and all that. Yeah, sure.”
