The door opened and three women entered, two blondes maybe in their twenties and—
He stiffened, though he wasn’t sure why. Maybe she’d been in one of the photos from the briefings? She seemed familiar to him, though he couldn’t connect her to anything specific. He was aware she was older than the twenty-somethings, her clothes somehow quieter in a field of bright. She pulled sunglasses off, a half smile edging her mouth as she looked around. With no evidence at all, Granger felt she was as bemused by the place as he’d been. Her hair was long and dark and pulled up and back so that it left her face exposed, with the bulk of her hair tumbling partway down her back like a mane. She gave off an aura of calm in the chaos, though as he watched, the smile faded and her lashes covered her eyes as she followed her companions through the press of people to the counter where he sat.
A strange sense of anticipation filled him at her approach. With even less evidence than before, he thought, I could like her.
Follow your gut, your instincts, Mel had told him, but he felt sure this was not the instinct she’d have wanted him to follow. He couldn’t afford to get distracted by—his thoughts splintered again when she slid onto the stool next to his and leaned her elbows on the counter, her clean scent finding him despite the myriad of smells already swirling around.
“A chocolate malt,” she said, her voice both rich and clear. “That’s all for now.”
He waited for her gaze to slide his direction, but instead she half turned toward the other two girls. He realized one of them was watching him in open speculation and when his gaze intersected with hers, she smiled with demure invitation. He rejected the idea he might be old enough to be her father, but she was still half child. And he hadn’t traveled back in time to get a date. Color heated his face for a moment and he looked down at his half-consumed malt, hoping it would provide a plan for him. It was getting about time he found a ride.
“Oh, there’s Jerry,” one of the voices said.
Granger slanted a careful look and saw, with relief, that it was his tormentor who’d had slid off the stool and hurried across the room. He wrapped his hands tighter around the malt, welcoming the cold chill of the glass against his palms.
“So what is the actual plan, Mary?” That cool, crystal clear voice had to be hers, amusement adding additional depth.
“Why, Alice—” she protested.
“If you were planning on me driving your father’s car back to base, shouldn’t you have made sure I can drive?”
Base? Edwards? Granger wasn’t sure he should hope. There had been at least two other bases in the area back then—now.
“Alice, don’t tell me—” There was clear horror in the young voice.
“I can drive,” Alice admitted. Her chuckle sent heat down Granger’s spine.
“You’re mean!” Mary protested, but there was laughter in her voice, too.
“You’d better give me the key,” Alice suggested. “I think I see Henry looking hopefully this way.”
“You are the best!” The girl leaned forward and gave her an impulsive hug. “Just leave—”
“I’ll leave it in front of my house with the key under the seat?”
And then Mary was weaving her way through the press to her young man.
“Well, at least I don’t have to be a chaperone,” she muttered, turning back to her malt.
Granger had to run a finger around his collar when her lips closed around the straw. He gave himself a mental shake. This woman could be his ticket to Edwards, if that was the base she meant. If. Now how to find out—
“Miss Merriweather,” a male voice almost purred. “I didn’t expect to see you here.”
