In the middle of the workday at the small firm where he'd worked with Wilson for the last nineteen years, Lamb took his father's ball cap from the empty chair by his office door and left. He drove through the city, through the warm and thickening haze, returning to the same dim parking lot where he had seen the girl twenty-four hours before. He set himself at the bus stop and was not surprised when he saw her coming down the gummy sidewalk minutes later, in long sleeves and pants despite the heat. Somehow—how?—he'd known she would come. He always knew everything. Nothing in the world ever surprised him anymore, ever. Imagine that. Feeling that.
