This troubles her because she’s not easily trusting. Feelings of security and familiarity begin to develop when Will’s around, so strong they puzzle her. The way he walks, the color of his hair and eyes, some of the things he says seem so familiar as if she’s known him all her life.
After bumping into Penny, Will discovers she has a stalker. Feeling an inexplicable connection with her, he delays his first assignment with Shaunessy Securities looking for missing heir, Anna Marie Daemon. He changes his decision after his initial meeting with Quentin Daemon, of Daemon Industries. Something about the case seemed connected to another case he never solved.
