"It's been decided that Eric will take over when I leave ACS, so if you want to pull him over to show him anything you're working on or introduce him to any cases, I'm sure he'd appreciate it.

I braced myself for the inevitable tears, the pleas for delay in departure. The FSNs glanced at one other.
"Okay." A collective shrug and typing resumed.
I'm sure they were crying on the inside.
