The trip to London so far had been an entire world change for Mia. Not just the driving and the accents all around, but spending so much time with Jeremy was disconcerting. It was strange to be in a different environment with him, one that wasn’t the workplace with structured interactions and co-workers keen eyes watching everything around them - desperate for the bare hint of drama.
No one knew who she was, it was the most freeing thing she’d ever experienced. Though she still knew who she was, and the small affection she could feel herself harboring for her boss was still being pushed down and stifled - though she didn’t know how long she could keep that up.
