She is sitting right beside him along with Olivia and Irish, hiding behind the balustrades of the terrace. He didn't let her join him in shooting down their pursuers this time since she's the one they're after. As much as possible, she needs to stay away from them. More preferably, she should really avoid showing herself up.
"So cool...! That's so cool, Charlie!" Cassidy cheered blithely, catching his attention.
"No, it's not. I'm barely hitting anyone down there. It's so dark in this place..." Charles sighed until his ammunition ran out.
"Oh, I'm out of bullets."
"Well, in your defense, you only did that to distract them, right? No need for bloodshed. Oh, and your hand signals earlier too! That's very cool!"
"You were watching the whole time?"
