It was only recently that Boo had actually asked just how much he could tell Alice. It turned out that he could tell her where he worked, and who his partner was, just not any real specifics. It would be enough.
He wasn't particularly excited to tell her. He knew she wasn't exactly fond of Caleb's line of work. It was dangerous, to be sure. But he knew the risks. And anyway, he'd been a cage fighter. It was no big for him. But for Alice? It just might be.
As soon as she knocked he hurried to get the door. He'd felt so awful keeping secrets from her, when she'd been so honest with him. It was... Weird, but not unwelcome. "Hey. I'm glad you came."
