Bodie shook his head. "You've got to be out of your tiny mind, sunshine." There was no affection in the endearment. "You tell him, and we kiss goodbye to CI5."
"We can't not tell him, " Doyle argued. "If we tell him ourselves, we won't be a security risk. Besides, he's bound to suss it out sooner or later..."
"Why should he?"
"For a start, he's gonna wonder why we've stopped dating birds..."
Bodie's mouth firmed into a thin line.
"You are going to stop, aren't you?" asked Doyle, his voice quiet, his body absolutely still.
"Don't know. I haven't exactly had time to give it any thought." Resentment that they were having this conversation shone on Bodie's face.
