From Protector of the Grey House:
Mierka greeted her in the garage. “Hello.”
“For some reason, I almost expected Joseph.” She gave Mierka a weary smile as she closed the car door.
“Am I a good stand in?” There was a smirk on the woman’s face.
Natalia laughed nervously as she rounded the car. “Yes, but he was keeping me up to date during all this.”
“I was taking care of Vincent. As he is not here yet, I choose to be where you are.”
“Thank you.” She stood next to Mierka now. “When will he be back?”
“Couple more hours. Did you find an answer to Joseph’s question?”
“No, but this is home.”
