Parts of the machine were still turning nicely, and since they were dependent only on his own actions, they would continue to run.

One clever man stood, straightening his neck-tie with manicured fingers. He reached out to give the silver pen a minuscule adjustment, returning it to symmetry with the edge of the desk, then walked across the silken carpet to the door.

He firmed the tie again, and reached for the handle. The other man, too, tugged at his tie, grateful for it.
