Before he had a chance to formulate an opinion of the girl he’d just met someone else was coming into the room. Her eyes were large and round with fear as the they darted around the room. She gave him the impression that she had been pushed into the room instead of coming in of her own volition
“Would you like to sit down?” he offered keeping his voice low and gentle. Despite his best efforts the girl jumped like a scared rabbit and Adam could easily imagine her running for her life from the room.
“Nnno thank you” she stammered.
Glancing at the time Adam began to hope their time was almost done to put both of them out of their misery. Clearing his throat he tried again “may I have your name?”
“Oh” her voice came out in a high pitched squeak “Devyn Todd.”
“Well Devyn it’s nice to meet you” he said softly hoping to put the girl at ease.
