From her pocket, Nora pulled a pair of sunglasses and handed it to him. “Here, put these on.” His eyebrow arched. “Just trust me.” Samuel reluctantly donned on the shades.

“I want you to join us and actually do some good in the world. What you are doing now, it’s bad. Sooner or later, you’d get caught.”

“I see you.” She sighed. “But sometimes, I see black smoke oozing out of you.”
He staggered backward as he struggled to process the information. He clutched his head. “What have I done? What has Dominic done to me?” He said frantically.
She grabbed his hand but he wrenched it away. “We can fix this.” She said softly.
He shook his head. “No you can’t.” He shouted and ran.
