“Why do people assume that every American carrying a weapon is with the damn CIA?”
“That’s not an answer. Besides, you didn’t give me a last name, exactly the sort of thing a CIA agent would do.”
He snorted. “And you know so much about the CIA?”
She felt her cheeks heat. But before she could respond, he said, “Think whatever you want.”
“Well,” she huffed. “Who are you then?”
“A history and folklore professor who likes his privacy and is just in the area gathering data for his next book.”
This time she snorted. She might not have attended college, but no way could she picture this man with his barely contained energy and his military-grade weapon confining himself to a classroom or a stuffy office all day. “Don’t think I believe that for a minute. No history professor is going to carry such a—” No, better not let him know that she’d recognized his gun. “Such a…um…lethal looking weapon.”
