Vincent Grey is an imposing man, due to his height and the manner in which he carries himself. Not everyone can keep his gaze.
From Inside the Grey House:
Kari looked away from the imposing man. Janice stepped forward and continued. “Vincent, please. I’ve lived a long time. All I want is to have the ability to leave the area. I don’t want to be under anyone’s rule anymore. I don’t know what these two want, but I want my freedom.”
He crossed his arms and looked to Janice, addressing only her. “And if I help you?”
She gave a sideway glance to Morgan and Kari. “Perhaps we can discuss that privately?”
Vincent stared her down or tried to. He held his gaze and did not waver under his hard scrutiny. Finally, he nodded. “That won’t be necessary.” He looked to Joseph, nodded and looked back to Janice. “If you have anything to say to me, speak to Joseph. You have my assistance.”
Relief flooded her features. “Thank you.”
