Rose looked sadly at Caspian. He could tell she was holding back tears. "She's been missing for two weeks now... No one knows how, when, why, or who took her. I'm sorry."
Caspian set his jaw. Ignoring the apologies for now. He didn't want her to know exactly how angry he felt at himself.
Rose stood, then went to leave. She paused to let an officer inside. The officer stood by Caspian's bedside. "Mr. Hart, I have a proposition for you.
Caspian nodded. "What is it, sir?" "The opining you wanted in the lab is ready for you when you want to come back." "I'll be there as soon as I can. Currently bedridden right now, Carter." Carter smiled. "We have three cases you can have your pick of which your team will do first. Sorry you left that year, you were the best in the lab."
Caspian nodded. "I know. I just couldn't after the 4 in a row murders. Dad was one of them." "Yes, but we do need more men like you, Cas." "I'll be there in the morning." "Good to hear. Mr. Hart. See you then." Carter left the room.
