After having a serious talk with his brother Nico about Nico’s secret child, Remy Holmes meets his girlfriend Lala Reyes in the guest bedroom of his brother’s penthouse. The young couple were temporarily staying in Nico’s penthouse. Their plan to rob a Sunlit Tides millionaire named Steven Brandt had failed miserably. Steven had brutally attacked Lala, and the money they’d stolen had been left behind in a motel room in Oasis Springs.
Lala concerned: Is your brother okay? He seemed very upset earlier.
Remy shrugs: He’s fine. Going through some weird stuff.
Lala senses that Remy didn’t want to talk about his older brother…whatever conversation they’d had was probably private.
Lala: Did he have a problem with my staying here?
Remy: I told you not to worry about that.
The couple stare out at the amazing view of San Myshuno. The crystal clear floor to ceiling windows gave the impression that the bright skyscrapers and starry sky were within a hand’s reach.
Lala softly: It’s really beautiful. I’ve never lived in a big city. Maybe it won’t be so bad here? Steven Brandt won’t find us in such a huge place. We can start brand new, Remy!
Remy coldly: We won’t be here long, Lala. I’m not hiding from Steven Brandt like a scared f*cking rat. We’ll stay here until I come up with a plan. I’m going to kill him for hurting you. And I’m getting all that money back.
