On balance, he preferred the silent treatment. Except the problem was it was more useful to keep Helen talking, to get her to accidentally reveal details on maniacal plans out of pure egotistical gloating. There was also the fact that her studying his face, his eyes, his person, tended to put James on edge. She was at the leisure of Her Majesty's Government – shackled, she came and went as he pleased, but still she sat there, leaning back in the chair, smug smile on her face like she knew something he didn't.

Helen leant forward, nothing accidental about it, and muttered one word to capture him.

I love this.

I love how Lester finds things useful, I love how Helen always bears the air of holding the advantage even when circumstances suggest otherwise...

(though my initial read-through made me think she said "I'm listening") sorry.

*hugs you*
