“Allegra” Lewis said “this is Vincent” Vincent's green eyes seemed to smile at her even though his mouth didn’t move.

“I am watching you” Rosie said sharply to him. “And I will be checking your pockets before you leave.”
“My darling Rosie I have never stolen anything from you and anyone who tries will lose a finger” he said it casually as if it meant nothing to him.
