Laura had spent a lot of the day holed up in her office, sending messages to acquaintances, and when that was done, going around the slaves to see if there was anything they needed for their jobs. It was nice seeing Miranda back to work, so Laura took a few moments to pull her aside, and see how she was doing being away from the twins, wondering how she did it.
So when she heard exactly who was babysitting them, and how long this'd been going on, she couldn't help but be a little taken aback that Derek had made that decision. It was something she needed to bring up with him, but it was never something that would go down well. The acquisition of Allison was purely a means to an end, after all - why she was being given such an important job was beyond her.
