Chapter 28 Mercy
- I can’t say we made the Grants friends for life, especially since getting Noel Greer to bring in his workers and complete the building of the hotel sent Douglas Grant running all over the place trying to save himself. Nolan was prepared to drag him to court if he tried to contest the contract they signed. He was prepared to do anything if Douglas played foul. I never knew Nolan was that merciless until now, he wasn’t giving Douglas the time of the day and I guess that’s expected given what Douglas put him through with the whole engagement charade with Lurane, then the tricky contract that would have put Nolan on the streets.
- I can say in all honesty though that I somewhat feel sorry for Lurane. Imagine having all your wealth taken away from you because your father took a risky bet. Even when we were friends before I realized what a wicked deceitful bitch she was, she grew up in wealth and enjoyed the good life and though she tried to live low-key then, it was still evident that without her parents' wealth, she would be lost. I guess Lurane Grant, daughter of once fabulously wealthy Mr. and Mrs. Grant will now have to live like we commoners, maybe even get a job to manage her lifestyle but I seriously doubt that.
- I turned on my side on the bed – Nolan and I had shared my bed, it was either that or be whisked to his bed since he wouldn’t let me be. I couldn’t help the smile that stretched my lips. Who would have thought that just when I feared my life was going to crash I would find hope and love again? And not just love from anywhere, from the one place I wasn’t looking. If I hadn’t been so blind I would have seen that from the onset. But then again I don’t think everything that has happened these few years would have happened.
