The enigma had never meant for this to happen - to disappear without a trace; without even so much as a whisper to Harleen. But, as things usually were with him, so this was. A secret. Really, she shouldn’t have worried - he would always find his way back to her. There was just a bit of work that had to be done, and it had to be done without her knowledge or presence. And explaining that to her would be the difficult part.
Or would it be having to face her after leaving her? Something he promise he would never do.
Edward stood, quite nervously - though, to the untrained eye, he may have looked confident - near the vehicle he had obtained during his absence. His green eyes followed the lines of the building, familiar as it was, he was still observing - Harley was there. He was positive. After all, more times than not, he was still checking his video feed - watching her.
And it pained him to see the look upon her face when she discovered he was gone. But it was all necessary. He only hoped she would come to see it that way.
