Ezra was so absorbed in the information he was reading that he was almost startled into jumping when Sanella walked up behind him.
“What are you doing here?” She said indignantly.
Instead of justifying why he was snooping around in her office, he stood up properly and met her irate gaze.
“What did she find?” Ezra said.
Sanella glared at him but then her hand settled on her stomach briefly before she looked away and sat down at her desk.
Ezra noted the action as he waited for her to continue.
“Nothing yet,” She said not meeting his gaze as she re-shuffled the documents on her desk.
“After almost two years?”
Sanella nodded absently.
“Do you know why I hired Liana?” Ezra asked.
Sanella glanced up her gaze heated. “She is an excellent researcher the best –”
“Everyone in this building is intelligent, I hired her because Liana is a scientist at heart, she likes her facts. Unlike Masla who worships Freud and loves the subconscious, I know Liana would never come to you with mere speculation.” Ezra said, “tell me what she found.”
Sanella glanced at the door and Ezra went to shut it and closed the blinds for good measure before turning to her his gaze expectant.
Sanella started laughing.
“What do you really think I’m about to tell you? That she has discovered the meaning of life?” Sanella continued to laugh.
Ezra waited patiently.
“She has,” Sanella began lightly, “proven cases of reincarnation. There now you can leave.”
“Why would I?”
“You don’t honestly believe her, do you?” Sanella said all humour gone.
“Ordinarily no,” Ezra said pausing and Sanella seemed to relax a little, “but the mere fact that you tried to keep it from me, proves that she is onto something.”
He walked to the door, “I want all her research brought to my office.”
