Charlie had called and told her the release she needed was ready, and Melissa had clients. She didn’t want to wait for a messenger, so she drove over herself.
“I wasn’t expecting this to get done so fast.”
“We knew it was important, so management put a rush on it.”
That could only mean Graham.
“When the bosses say do it, it gets done. Between you and me, it kind of pissed off the legal department. They want to put the magnifying glass to every dot of ink. But I guess, people have to justify their existence sometimes.” Charlie grinned. “Anything else we can do?”
“No. That’s plenty. Thank your boss for me.” She stood and scooped up her bag. Charlie followed her to the door, opening it for her to step out.
“Thank him yourself. He’s in the office today.”
“I don’t want to bother him.”
Alexa stopped, and Charlie’s brow lifted in mischief. “I don’t think he’d consider a visit from you a bother.”
His insinuation seared Alexa’s cheeks. Did people at Graham’s office know that they’d had a…thing? Her silent discomfort made Charlie blush.
“Sorry. I didn’t mean to imply anything or make you uncomfortable. I’ve just, you know, noticed you two. I—I’m going to shut the hell up now.”
“He and I are friends. I have a boyfriend.”
Alexa forced a smile. Was that the first time she’d called Adam her boyfriend? The word put Charlie on his heels, which served Alexa’s purposes even if it made sweat trickle down her back.
