That caused me to raise an eyebrow. He spoke it so calmly, like it was text from a book, like it was just facts. There was no emotion to his voice, no impact, nothing. That creeped me out.
That meant something. It could be just facts to him. He could, possibly, just be speaking from a book. That, however, was very unlikely.
