The corners of his mouth slowly curled into a wicked grin, a mischievous twinkle in his eyes. She might not be getting a punishment now, but if she happened to choose one from the mystery hat, she would have to endure it...for his sake. It would be just another maintenance spanking, and sometimes those were a good thing. He feigned a look of hurt. "Aww, pity. I was just starting to get excited."
He stood there, watching his little Lennox as she explored her surroundings, a permanent smile still tugging at the corners of his mouth. He had a feeling she was already intrigued, intrigued to know more, to learn more, to play with him more. "I assume that would be a good 'wow.'" He turned and walked in the opposite direction, coming around the stairwell and sitting down at his desk nestled there, along with a bank of computer monitors, two in particular. The one on the left was recording Lennox's heartbeat in real time from his collar on her neck. He smiled to himself at the sight. "Ah, there you are, little heart."
