Magnus watched as the rest of the team settled into the sofas in her office. They were all there, including Nikola, who hadn’t disappeared as she’d expected him to.

Will was almost a brother in arms at this point. It made her very suspicious of Nikola’s motives, but for now she could only be grateful to have him with them.
