Chapter 6 Retrieval Mission

  • Mazza, Alonso's grandfather, had been expecting his grandson to come back home to Sicily, Italy, the very next day after his business trip to Moscow. Taleela and the cook had gotten chatty, and he felt thankful.
  • However, Taleela got so bored of staying indoors. Yesterday, he had taken her shopping. He bought her a new phone, hair, make-up and ordered some new clothes from his grandson's conglomerate company, La Corporation De Sina.
  • Taleela was very excited, and she thanked him profusely. Even if Alonso had not accepted her yet, Mazza had already begun treating her like his granddaughter. She still could not recall anything from her past life.
  • Today, Mazza had taken her to Galleria dell'Accademia (Academy Gallery), an art museum in Florence. Michaelangelo's best-known work, David, was copied all over Florence, but inside this art museum was where one could find the original. David was not the only Michaelangelo here, nor was it the only influential masterpiece.
  • Mazza had shown to her four unfinished slaves, meant for a tomb in Rome, seemingly in the process of being released from the marble.
  • "Ah-ha! That one is called David," Mazza said sharply. "Unfortunately, due to an attack on the sculpture, they now keep it behind glass."
