“Well, you’re probably better equipped to handling this. Good luck, Heherson.”
“Where are you going?” Irish asked as Tim went for the door.
“Uh, home. I’m tired.”
“You aren’t going to leave him to do this himself!”
“Worried about me, yeah?” Heherson asked hopefully.
Irish ignored him, fixing Tim with a glare. “You won’t leave him to do this on his own. Not with the limited time left.”
“Well, what can I do? I don’t have a lead now that my only one has proven to be wrong. A necromancer could be anywhere when not on the registry. How do you track one down?”
Heherson laughed. “Well, you-”
“And if he knows, then he certainly doesn’t need me-”
Irish interrupted him. “Neither of you are going home until this is settled.”
“Heherson’s already home.”
“All three of us will work together?” Heherson looked thrilled. “Ah, man, this will be fun!”
Irish blinked. “I didn’t say I was going to-”
“No one’s going home until this is settled, right?” Tim reiterated.
Irish scowled. “I have a case to- oh, who am I kidding. I won’t have a meeting if this goes through. All right, where do we start?”
Tim should have known she would agree like that and that it would leave him even less off the hook. Swallowing, he looked between the exes – Irish intensely focused and Heherson intensely focused on Irish.
It could have been worse. It could have been the zombie apocalypse.
