HE'D BEEN SITTING here so long his rear end was starting to go numb. Nick shifted his weight, stretched his legs in their lightweight outdoor trousers, settled his back more comfortably against the tastefully neutral-coloured wall, and then he was motionless again. There was a clock on the wall down the corridor from him, near the creaky elevators. It ticked in the emptiness, a constant artificial monotony that dragged on Nick's nerves. It wasn't the noise that bothered him. He was used to noise back home: the constant rush of the ocean and the whirr of leaves and the bickering of birds. Those were timeless sounds. But this tick was a precise measurement of time passing. Every second ticking by was another second he had to wait for the mysterious Ms Drake and the answers he'd waited far too long for already. He glanced at his watch; it was over two hours since he'd spoken with the uniformed concierge in the fancy lobby downstairs. If Nick hadn't known he was in New York already from the traffic and the blare and the buildings and the stink, he would've known from that guy. Surely nowhere else in the world could someone whose job it was to welcome people to a building be so hostile. As soon as Nick had walked in the building the concierge had been glaring at him. Nick had ignored it, of course, striding across the marble floor straight to the art deco elevator and punching the up button. 'Can I help you, sir?'The words dripped with condescension, especially the last one. 'No. I know where I'm going.' Nick stared straight ahead at the bronze elevator grille. 'Staying for a while, are you?' Nick didn't answer. Maybe if he ignored the man he would go away. No luck. The man's next words came from behind his shoulder. 'That's a very large backpack.' The large pointer above the elevators crawled slowly down the dial from the tenth floor towards the ground floor. 'What apartment are you visiting? Or are you moving in?' The sarcasm made him finally turn to face the concierge. Nick was a good half a foot taller than the guy and much broader and he knew for a fact he was radiating anger. The concierge didn't blink an eye. 'Forty-three,' Nick growled. 'I'm looking for Ms Drake.' That, for some reason, did make the concierge blink. 'Ms Drake?' Nick was a patient man, but not today. He saw no point in repeating something that had been perfectly clear in the first place. He watched the hand crawl from five to four. 'You won't find Ms Drake,' said the concierge, and there was something in his voice that made Nick look away from the dial and at him again. His thin lips were pursed, his blue eyes practically bugging out of his head. If Nick didn't know better, he'd think the little glaring guy was close to tears. The elevator dinged. 'I'll wait,' Nick said, pulled the grille aside, and stepped into the elevator. 'You'll be waiting a while,' the concierge said, but Nick pressed the button for the fourth floor and the doors were closing. Fiction Fiction eBook, Harlequin
