    Summary

    “I have plenty of experience and even more ideas,” she began and Sloan loved the way her accent formed her words. Her smile faded but she leaned forward, finding herself able to listen to the voice for the rest of the day and then some. It was a few sentences into the woman’s spiel that she realized she had missed the content and had focused solely on the way the words poured from her lips.
