Jace adjusted his tie. To be honest, he had been rather surprised when Phoebe had said yes to the meeting, but he figured maybe she was finally getting over her obvious dislike of him. He wasn't too sure how he felt about that. On one hand, having Phoebe as an ally could be good, but on the other... he didn't like that his reputation was changing.
He had made his way on the suggested date to the Durant Estate in Montreal, and found the veranda near the back of the property. He had caught Phoebe and Ronelle gossiping there several years earlier, during a party, and ever since it had been the spot for the rare opportunities when Phoebe would allow him to speak with her in private.
There was movement behind him, and he turned. "Good evening, Miss Durant," he said, flashing a charming smile.
