Alim Hasshel was rich and used to getting what he wanted, but his ambition had recently been thwarted. The person responsible had thus become his enemy. After considering the matter, he reached a decision – he would take his revenge in a special way. He smiled to himself and felt devilishly satisfied. But he had made a critical mistake, though one common to the arrogant –he had underestimated his target. It was an easy error in judgment because his opponent was only a girl, a pretty girl. How could he, or anyone for that matter, foresee that she was destined to grow into the deadliest woman on the planet? Or that he himself would provide one of the triggers to awaken her latent abilities?
