Her eyes took up a position midway between Murphy and me, looking at neither of us while watching us both. 舡 Benn nodded once, but didn舗t say anything in reply. Just waited. I gathered myself to go, but paused. Murphy planted her feet and lowered her arms casually to her sides. I recognized the stubborn out-thrust angle of her jaw. She had that look she got when she was behind on points in one of her martial-arts tournaments. Murphy was ready to fight. Damn. I had to get her cooled off before we could accomplish anything.
Sitting here pouting,舡 Murphy said. She bent over and absently picked up the wadded scrap of paper I had tossed aside earlier, tucking it tidily into her coat pocket rather than letting it lie about as clutter on the floor. 舡 I glanced up at Murphy. I didn舗t have far to look. Karrin Murphy wasn舗t much more than five feet tall. She舗d gotten her golden hair cut, from shoulder length to something far shorter, and a little longer in front than in back. It was a punky sort of look, and very appealing with her blue eyes and upturned nose.
Why should we start now? That was last spring. 舡 舠Give me a break, Murphy. 舡 舠Let me guess. 舡 she said sweetly. 舠You know I wasn舗t one of the bad guys. You have to know that by now. 舡 Murphy shook her head, staring straight forward. 舡 舠No? 舡 舠The point, Dresden, is that you lied to me. You refused to give me information that I needed to do my job. When I bring you in on one of my investigations, I am trusting you. I don舗t just go around trusting people. 舡 She took a grip on the steering wheel, her knuckles whitening.
