2 Works in Emmy Altava & Rachel Bronev
“Mr. Altava has a daughter. Has just been born, a few months ago,” someone interposed, “What should we do with her?”
“The girl is not of our interest."
Leon couldn’t follow the rest of the meeting. He couldn’t get his thoughts away from Mr. Altava’s daughter. He had to think of his own sons whom he’d had to leave behind all those years ago, not knowing what had happened to them. He still didn’t know. But they had at least each other. The little girl had no one.
“Instead of just leaving her, we could take her in. Train her right from the cradle to make her a loyal servant to our cause.” He hated talking about this little girl like that, like she was an experiment.
“I quite like that idea, I have to admit, Bronev.”
