Ezra exchanges Vin's file for Buck's, but just as he opens it and prepares to work, their leader walks into his office. Larabee saunters calmly around Ezra's desk and the mountains of paperwork it holds, drops down, and whispers something in his ear. Ezra's face flushes just a little as he tosses Buck's file out of the way and grabs Chris'.
Larabee smirks. His green eyes slant up at the others. "That's how you get a job done, boys."
