To Isis, only a fool or one with aggressive ambition would decline such an immense opportunity. A fool would be unable to weigh the pros and cons of such a decision's impact on his career. Meanwhile, the one with aggressive aspirations would retreat, perhaps biding time for another day, for the sake of advancing to a higher position. But she felt that Rocky did not seem to fit in either category. He was genuinely rejecting the olive branch her father had extended--an offer that many other men would've died for. There must have been a serious reason for rejecting the proposal. Or perhaps Rocky had a few more secrets he was trying to hide.
