I'm a librarian who loves anime, manga, and reading a wide variety of genres.
Hm. Beth has just asked Ian if he would like a "liaison" with her. Only a few minutes before, Inspector Fellows arrived with his accusations, and Ian and Fellows had their little confrontation. I'm feeling somewhat doubtful of Beth's intelligence. Reassuring Ian that she's still his friend is one thing - asking him if he'll be her lover is a bit much under the circumstances.
So far, this is okay, but there's a lot more lusting and a lot less actual romance than I'd prefer.
