The Eight Sentences:
Claudia did not answer right away.
Star continued to watch the crown molding where the wall met the ceiling, “I’m going to sit up now and take my feet off the ottoman.”
Their eyes met again.
Claudia watched her left-handed guest's eye movement to see how they responded to a question, “What can I do for you?”
Star’s eyes moved up and to her right in a subconscious and uncontrollable response — visual remembrance — she was about to tell the truth, “I need your help.”
Claudia’s shoulders dropped but she kept a firm grip on her tactical knife, “In what way?”
The Back Story:
Claudia's guest is a character from each of my first two books, Star Braun.
Star is left handed so Claudia applies what she learned from the NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) accessing cues to determine if it is a lie or not.
Knowing and being able to apply this information was an important part of Claudia's studies to earn a masters degree in group dynamics at LSU. Group dynamics was the subject of this blog: "What the assassin already knows."
