Vicky looked at me. “What are you thinking, Jeff?”
“I want Nick Gantry to go away,” I said.
“This is a dangerous road,” Tabs interjected.
“Yeah,” Vicky agreed. “What is your motivation here Jeff? Revenge can be very ugly. This isn’t like you to pursue a vendetta.”

“I don’t think I’m really motivated by revenge here. Cindy is her own person and has always had the right to do whatever she wanted. She’s really more of a symptom at this point instead of being the real problem,” I said.
“No. The real problem is that Nick Gantry is just a malicious bully. He always has been,” I said.
“His success has been driven by the dark flaws of his character. He’s greedy, sadistic, and just a general parasite that feeds off the misery of others,” I said.
“Well, he certainly has established a long list of enemies over time,” Vicky said. “There are a lot of people out there, some with substantial resources that could be helpful to us.”
“The enemy of my enemy is my friend,” I said.
