She turned her head—she needed to
Jahns had a suspicion that extra pains had been taken to accommodate them. Every room was packed, many of them double- and triple-booked. And since the cleaning had been scheduled well before this last-minute interview adventure of theirs, she suspected rooms had been bumped around to make space. The fact that they had given them separate rooms, the mayor’s with two beds, made it worse. It wasn’t just the waste, it was the arrangement. Jahns was hoping to be more…inconvenienced. And Marnes

And this is more important work than you think.” “And I’d live up top?” “Your office is on level one. Near the airlock.” Juliette seemed to mull this over. Jahns was excited to have her even asking questions. “The pay is more than you’re making now, even with the extra shifts.” “You checked?” Jahns nodded. “I took some
their cooling comes ducted from Mechanical, and if temps get any higher, we’ll be ramping down, which we’ve never had to do!” Marnes stepped between the two of them, his hands raised. “Easy,” he said coolly, his gaze on Bernard. “Call off your little shadow here,” Bernard said.
