This little scene is just so typical of Romeo and Julian that it makes me smile. It finds Romeo and Julian after a little clash with Barnes, the junior agent.
Romeo, for his part, had the grace not to gloat. There was a faint giveaway gleam of glee in his eyes, but he kept his face averted so that Barnes at least couldn’t read his expression.
“Are you coming or what?” Julian snapped at him when it appeared that he wasn’t going to follow.
“Oh, you mean you want me to be present during the questioning?”
“Yes. And just so we’re clear—present means you get to watch and listen, but you keep your mouth shut. I’m asking the questions, got it?”
“Watch, listen, and shut mouth. Yep, got it,” Romeo answered with a grin that did absolutely nothing to mollify Julian’s temper. At least he indeed kept his mouth shut after that and followed Julian to the interrogation rooms.
