"Rolling Stones gather no moss"

How to get to her? It was the only question Nathan could ask himself. She had remained to herself with her eyes glued to her phone.

It was like she didn't even care he was here.

"The files!" His mind got working.

Nathan doubted the files having his signature would be in the house but he had to give it a shot.

Talk about way over your head!

"So...Now that Boulderfist is yours what do you intend to do with it?"

Adriana gave him a bemused look crossing her slender legs in the most intimidating manner.

"What makes you think I want your company? If it was left to me I would have it to the ground but he has other plans."

Her answer got Nathan more curious, "Who? Your father!"

She didn't reply. She stared back into her phone and began to type.

"About your father—I didn't mean to betray him, my…"

A knock cut Nathan short.

Who could be at the door?

"Get it, Nathan!"

She had turned him to her b*tch but he had to do it...he had to kiss her feet until he got what he came for then he would make them pay.

The painted white door opened to reveal a familiar face.


Another nightmare was right in Nathan's face.

"Hello, Nathan." The man's voiced, his tobacco breath making Nathan's stomach tighten.

"Hello, Thomas."

Thomas was a stout man whose head was now covered in greys and fine lines, a scar that wasn't there when they met now resided on his forehead, his silver eyes had lost their glow and were now bloodshot.

"You must be surprised to see me after you let me rot in penury."

Nathan took a deep breath as old memories flashed in his head like family photos.

"I'm sorry Tom..."

"It's okay Nathan, u have everything you stole from me but I have to thank you for helping me build it. It would be perfect to merge Boulderfist and Transcorp as one. Just like I had dreamt, a tower."

Thomas took a seat near his daughter and I could barely see the resemblance between the two, Adriana had a deceptive demeanor that would make you lose your mind but the new Thomas looked like a hood gangster, a shell of his former self.

"Adriana wanted you here to know we have won." Thomas continued reaching out to a portfolio Nathan hadn't noticed before and br

's gotten what he wants, you bust him, he's deemed a criminal, society will hate, the hood will reject him, he'll finally be the outcast he has always been."

Adriana could not express her shock when she learned a little about what her father had in store for Nathan.

Sure, she wanted him to suffer but her father's plan was way too intense. Would she even go through with it?

Thomas noticed his daughter's reluctance. She did not want to go through with this and he knew how to get the soulless Adriana back.

"Adriana, you are just like your mother, worried about doing the worst even to the worst of people but remember what Nathan caused Adrian!"

Adriana's breathing rate increased tremendously with her heart beating fast and pumping adrenaline of hate into her system.

How could she forget?

How could she feel pity for Nathan?

Nathan was nothing but a rabid so that needed to be chained or rather killed.

This is for Adrian!

"How those it feel having the rage back Adriana?" Thomas quizzed.


Adriana knew her mission and she had to take a step to make her father's intended future for Nathan become a reality and to get that, she had to pretend to break down her walls, get to know him inside out.

A little part of her wanted nothing to do with a fellow human's downfall which would make her just as bad as Nathan whom she detested. Maybe it was her conscience but it didn't prick her, it just nudged, a gentle one at that.

It was now her choice to make.
