Avery's paranoia escalates into overdrive, he starts to feel uneasy; feeling as though someone is watching his every move; as if someone has always been watching him. When a mysterious piece of the twenty-five year old secret is delivered to Avery's house, his suspicions of being watched are confirmed; someone knows But who? The night terrors began to take a toll on Avery and his relationship with his fianc the beautiful Jordynn Christopher, his high school sweetheart; the woman he was no longer in love with, but the woman who got him through his nightmares. He'd hidden his secret from her; she could never know, but when Avery starts receiving riddled notes from the unknown culprit, he then starts to believe that he knows who it is; the paranoia persists to the point of desperation; he now questions his only remaining friend, Chris' loyalty to the point of threatening his life, his only recourse is to enlist the help of the person he despises most, Mr. Sebastian Croix, the wealthiest man in LaMontagne Parish, Louisiana; a sight to behold and named the ninth wonder of the world, his mind is as beautiful as his reflection; Ruler of his atmosphere and all who dare to exist in it, including the pretentious and cunning Avery Ellis.
