“Good morning, Liz.”
Startled, Liz stopped and turned to see who had greeted her.
“Good morning Shirley,” Liz said. “I was going to say how surprised I am to see you here, but I shouldn’t be now should I?”
“Life and the legal world go on,” Shirley said.
“And so do you, I see.
"You also, have a visitor,” Shirley said.
"Kylee’s sister. She came by to pick up some personal items of Kylee’s. I showed her to Kylee's desk, and I left her to answer a call. When I came back to check on her, I caught her coming out of Bill’s office.
“Did she say why she was in Bill’s office?”
“Yes, but perhaps she should tell you herself.”
“Shirley, please I can’t just berate Kylee’s sister for snooping around under these circumstances. Why was she in Bill’s office?”
“She said that she was checking Bill’s office for any of Kylee’s possessions, and when I asked her why would she think that Bill would have anything belonging to Kylee, she said because he was fucking her. Then she asked to see you.”
Liz dropped her shoulders, but stood firm as she looked Shirley directly into her eyes then turned and walked away.
“She’s in the ladies’ room now," Shirley said. "I’ll escort her to your office when she returns.”
Liz was seated at her desk logging onto her computer when Shirley walked into her office with the visitor. Liz could barely contain her surprise when she saw who Shirley had with her.
