Cameron takes a sip from the reusable coffee mug that contains his breakfast. The phone is back on the hook. An annoyed Iris rolls her sleeves back up. "What I want to know is, what kind of person names a cat after a bird? And a dead bird, at that?"

"Motion sensor," Iris corrects, "and stop calling it a proximity alert, I'm a detective, not a starship captain."
