[Prologue] [Part One]

She takes her time watching Cosima walk towards the Manning table, pulse beating erratically at the thought of talking with Beth alone.

She frowns and crosses her arms, “I won’t be able to sell that now that you’ve put your fingers all over it.”

Beth looks up at her and smiles before reaching into her back pocket, “How much are you charging for one?”
