After Claire had been seeing Paul for half a year she went to Peru for a week to work on the Case of the Silver Pearl and stayed another six months. Claire could have phoned Paul or written to him or emailed him but she didn’t. When Claire got back to San Francisco paul was dating someone else Lydia.  Claire and Lydia were best friends when lydia phones Claire to ask if she minds that she is now seeing Paul.
