San Myshuno, November 2016
It’s early morning in San Myshuno. Lala Reyes wakes up before the rest of the house, and walks down to the spotless penthouse kitchen to prepare a big breakfast for Remy. She knew it was old-fashioned, and Remy never demanded it of her, but she enjoyed cooking and cleaning for him. Lala was good in the kitchen, and she found it particularly enjoyable to cook in a modern kitchen with pricey appliances. She is so busy setting the table with the food she’d prepared for Remy she doesn’t notice Nico Holmes behind her.
Nico: That smells good.
Lala turns around, startled. She clasps her hands nervously in front of her.
Lala stutters: Hello, Mr. Holmes. I’m Lala Reyes. We met yesterday? I’m Remy’s girlfriend.
Nico gives her a smile that doesn’t quite reach his eyes.
Nico: Call me Nico.
