"Jack, you poor thing." Honey with a twinge of regret. Her perfect hair jostles and straightens back into place as she shakes her head. "Don't you get it, Jack? This was never about you."
"Wendy is just using you."
A clinging in my stomach when she says this tells me something I didn't want to know - that this news makes me upset. Gotta stay professional. "Using me for what?"

"You're not bad with code, either. You may not know, but Wendy had a run-in with those two gentlemen before you spoke with her. You didn't know that?" she asks, voice rising with interest at the end. "She even had that disk in her hands."
"But of course it was useless to her alone. After all, she deals with hardware, not software. She's the other side of your coin, isn't she, Jack? Or at least she was."
