Rozafa’s Secrets – main Antagonist Victor Glasser aka Victor Meta.
“Excellent Gordon, I am counting on it being there, we have a big show planned.” Massaging his chin with arms folded, appearing deep in thought. “It disappointed me only John Reid could attend. You’re sure the others can’t be enticed to attend?
“We are lucky to have one of the makers for the presentations, sir. I made very good offers, but they all have something planned with their families. It is July when people are taking their planned vacations.”
“I wanted them all there, but need only one to present Michael’s Spear. We have enough blacksmiths demonstrating regardless. And Gordon,” softening his voice as if offended, “please don’t call me sir here in the office. We have known and worked with each other for over 25 years. I am still Victor. I know I seem distracted or even testy at times, I assure you it has nothing to do with you.” Smiling and grasping Gordon’s hands, holding them for a moment, pretending to be affectionate.
He grows weary of the duplicity at times. Poor Gordon has no idea why I have become indifferent towards him, tsk, tsk; it matters not as long as he performs his job. I almost wish it could be different, but the time is nearing when such affections will be a hindrance. As long as Gordon continues to think I am going through a long phase in my life he is useful to me and my plans. Smirking involuntarily, thinking; I am going through a phase and soon so will Gordon and everyone else. I will be all that matters to all of them.
