She held her breath for a moment, thinking about what could have possibly awoken her, only to come to the annoyed conclusion that it had to be an unexpected guest.

Dark Facts You Didn't Know About The Horrible Tomb Raider Movies
Like clockwork, a gentle knock sounded on her bedroom door. The door opened and her trusted butler and friend stuck his head in just far enough to be able to see her. They are most definitely armed, but not of the hostile kind. Hillary moved even further away as Lara left her room, running a hand through her hair in order to detangle it as best she could on such short notice. She was barely five steps out of her room, though, when she stopped.
Hillary reached into the pocket of his flannel robe and wrapped his fingers around the item he knew she needed as she turned to look at him. He removed his hand from his pocket and held it out to her, a simple hair clip lying in his palm.
She smiled at him. Lara paused for a moment, gnawing on her bottom lip in thought. Hillary had to think about her words for several moments before his tired mind finally caught up with her line of thought.Лара Крофт: Расхитительница гробниц
She took one look at the sleeping figure in the backseat of the Jeep, their disheveled curly blonde hair almost glowing in the fluorescent light of the garage, and nearly threw a nearby screwdriver at her guest.
Tell me you didn't drive all night to get here. His lazy, easy-grin was nowhere in sight. Instead, he had the grin of a tired man who just wanted to collapse. He worried her some days. The American man studied her for a moment, one hand still on the handle of the suitcase he was struggling to free.

In perfect harmony with her ex-husband's actions, Lara leaned into the Jeep, unbuckled Mira from her car seat, and lifted her out of the Jeep, cradling her daughter's head against her shoulder like she had done a thousand times before. Lara turned around and Alex had to fight down the urge to hold her in his arms.
Mira Elizabeth West looked like an angel sleeping against her mother's shoulder. The toddler was the perfect mix of Lara and Alex, with Alex's hair color and her mother's pout.
