Tara's "place" turns out to be a seedy-looking back alley, cheeringly decorated with a fire escape, a dumpster, and a thin, steady slick of oily water running down the middle towards the grate about halfway between the entrance and where the alley angled off around the back edge of one of the buildings.

"Do you know how lucky you are I'm not a fucking undercover HSA plant?" she says, the words hissing between her clenched teeth as she gestures wildly. She turns to face him and rolls her eyes, sighing. "'Blowing shit up.' Where did you learn to keep secrets, the Pentagon?"
