"A PI." Blake felt almost impressed with himself, as his tone managed to stay even. For as far-fetched as it seemed, the level of persistence meshed, and aside from the earlier incident, Mars didn't have any reason to lie to him. Of course, there was more to the situation than John could admit, but it might not hurt to let her in on a few more details.
Or, at least, it probably wouldn't have hurt if not for the sudden appearance of some faces that Blake wasn't counting on. Immediately, he turned his back to the door and grabbed Veronica's arm so he could force her to do the same.
The din of the commotion was nearly breathtaking as a group of be-suited individuals swarmed into the room. Two talked on their cellphones and another two began folding in on the departing heroin addict and her large friend. As Blake pulled on a ball cap, he just barely caught sight of the group out of the corner of his eye.
"Thinkin' we oughta continue this elsewhere," he warned as he aimed her in the direction of the elevator. A quick glance at his phone and he doubled the pace. If he was lucky, the tracker would remain undetect—
"Over there!" The yell came from behind them and Blake pushed the elevator button with some urgency. This wasn't a good time to have to wait, so he pressed against Veronica again and pointed her toward the stairwell. "Gogogo!"
