Naomi looked up at Scott solemnly.
Since everything had been laid on the table, she no longer had questions. It was whether he had anything else to discuss.
Silence hung in the air when Naomi finished her sentence. Oddly enough, it was deafening. Naomi blinked. She sensed it almost immediately, but such a feeling only flashed by. She did not think too much about it as this was not something important or something she should care about.
