He left a moment ago, having already informed her husband about her arrival. She did not expect that he would notice her earlier in the lobby, but she was glad that he did. He himself looked glad upon seeing her there, though he tried not to ask her too much about her purpose for coming.
"I'm guessing that you're here to see the President? You came at the right time, Ma'am. We're just about to go home..." was what Charles said to Cassidy at that time.
"You two might need some time alone, I assume."
Cassidy was still recalling her conversation with Charles when she heard a faint sound of footsteps approaching her, which made her heart pick up pace and thump loudly in her chest.
