Chapter 10

Going through so much, she wouldn't be surprise if she had a nervous break down. The doctor had offered something to help sleep, but she didn't want anything. She didn't like the dreams about Ethan she continued to have.

On her third day vigil by her grandmother's side, a very handsome man with gorgeous green eyes and pitch black hair came in the room. When he introduced himself as James Black by handing her a business card, she told him exactly where he could stick the business card. He only chuckled and found and seat next to him.

"Didn't you hear what I said?"

"I'm not like my brother," he said.

"Whatever you have to say about that man to me, you're only wasting your breath."

"He told me the same thing when I told him I was coming over to see you, and then he also said he'd break my neck if I slept with you."

"Why should he care? He's got his revenge."

James lowered his eyes to his briefcase in his lap. "I thought you said you didn't want to speak about him."

"That would be the reason why you came isn't it?"

He shook his head. "To be honest, partly. He asked me to do something for him, and I thought I should get the news to you since you won't see him. I figured this was pretty important to you unless you aren't interested in saving your grandmother's business."

She sat up glaring at him warily. "How could you possibly help me?"

"By setting up an appointment with Parker Mills a day early before your uncle and mother meet with him. If you have a sweeter deal for him, then I suggest you make a ploy for him now. They owe him a great deal of money."

She wanted to meeting, but she wasn't sure what or how she could sweeten the deal. "How much is owed?"

"A quarter of a million."

She buried her head in her hands.

"Talk with your mother's lawyer. Maybe he could help you out, Nicole." He placed his card on her lap. "Call me to confirm or let my secretary, Kristen know."

After he was gone, she went to the pay phone and called Armando Bellini. To her good luck, he was on his way to Detroit and could meet her in Southfield at the St. Royal Hotel tomorrow. She called Cleo to see if she could stay at Nanna's side for her. Cleo eagerly agreed.
