Will Langdon agree to keep her safe when it goes against his own interests?

My leg started to cramp, and I shifted under the desk to ease the pain.
But when I moved, a blue cheese stuffed olive escaped from the napkin and rolled out from under the desk. I froze and stopped breathing as it traveled out to the tip of one of his shoes and stopped.
I considered reaching for it, but the man would surely see my hand. Maybe he wouldn’t notice the olive. Don’t look down. Don’t look down.
