The Pact

The numbers may go up or down as they will, or as he continues to manipulate them, despite his promise not to interfere. I don’t believe him. After all, I didn’t corner him to make a promise he and I both know he’s incapable of keeping, as much as I wanted him to admit that he was responsible for the stock manipulation in the first place. Now that the whole affair is out in the open, even when he tries to pull his puppet strings, all of us, the puppets included, will know what he’s up to. The rest is up to us. And I think we all know how that’s going to turn out. Yes, now that the cat is out of the bag, quite literally, this is one augmented feline that we will keep under very close scrutiny.
