As you know, Claire is graduating with a Masters in Zoology,” she said.
“Yes, I know that part,” he interrupted.
“Well, what you don’t know, is that she wants to stay here in San Diego and do research here at the Zoo. She has decided not to come to Kenya to do game research with you,” Meredith said.
“Damn, Meredith. Did you put her up to this? What kind of deal did you make with her?” Charles said angrily.
Brushing her hair from her face, “No Charlie. You know she has been doing intern work here as part of her Masters’ thesis. I think she just loves it here.” she responded. “I’ll have her call you in a few days. She can explain.”
“Well, damn it, again. That makes my night. You might as well get to the second part of the call. The ‘Zoo’ proposition. Can’t wait to hear this one!” he exclaimed.
