The Van Helsing Impetus – Excerpt No. 379

“This space was not intended for use as a private residence?” Clara guessed.

“Nothing gets past you,” Evelyn said with a giggle. “Once construction is complete, this will be a luxury hotel, complete with integrated restaurants and clubs.”

“Like The Grand?” Clara asked.

Non,” Evelyn replied. “This hotel will cater to the elite, or to locals seeking a taste of luxury.”

“Your idea?” Clara asked.

Evelyn grinned. Marc would never sign off on such a public locale without a good reason.

“An opportunity, really. The original developers declared bankruptcy, and we needed a home,” Evelyn replied. “We had this space repurposed for our needs. However, the rooms, restaurants, and amenities that remained were wired with sophisticated surveillance systems. Nothing happens here without me knowing about it.”

“I suppose you plan to leverage this wealth of knowledge,” Clara said.

“You know me too well,” Evelyn said before moving in for a hug.
