Dexter gave a presentation on the research being carried out by the Russell Group to a packed function room of media personnel and company executives.
With free time on her hands, Josie accompanied Alice to the thirty-second floor of the building to watch the event.
She saw many familiar faces there.

Arnold ordered the most expensive drink on the menu. Josie maintained her composure.
He felt a sense of awe and wonder as he gazed into her pure and profound features.
