Later that week, Elle stopped in at her father’s firm to drop off some documents she wanted him to go over for her. Sometimes it was handy to have a lawyer in the family.
“This appears pretty straightforward,” he said, flipping through the pages. “But I’d like to take it home and look over it better, make sure there aren’t any surprise clauses.”
“Of course,” she said. “I told them I wanted the weekend to think about it.”
“Perfect.” He slid the file into his bag.
One wall of Marcus’ office was glass, and Elle caught sight of Raiden standing outside another associate’s office. Her eyes narrowed.
“He doesn’t look like a lawyer,” she accidentally said out loud.
“Huh?” Her father looked up and gave a little smile. “Oh, are you talking about Raiden?”
Elle didn’t answer.
“What is it that makes you think he doesn’t look like a lawyer?” he asked.
“Look at his hair and his tattoos.”
Marcus chuckled. “I highly doubt that Raiden is the only person in the legal field who has tattoos. Can you even see any of them now?”
She surveyed Raiden still talking to whoever was in the office. His dark trousers looked tailored, and the trim-cut dress shirt was long-sleeved and cuffed. Not a single tattoo was to be spotted. She frowned.
“What is it exactly that you have against Raiden?”
She spun around and detected a twinkle in her father’s eye. “Nothing,” she said, perhaps a tad too defensively. “Nothing, I hardly know the man.” Elle checked the time. “I should get going. I need to pick up Logan.”
She kissed her father on the cheek and walked out, trying to keep her eyes forward as she passed Raiden, but he caught sight of her and gave a smile.
“Elle,” he said with a nod. “Nice to see you again.”
“Raiden,” she said with a curt nod of her own. She thought she heard a chuckle as she continued to the elevator.
