Megan's Empire Book One

19 The Tour

(first person, Megan)



What Happens?

Megan is on the official tour of Albania and being steered around by Gold Baton Reitz. When the tour guide gets the chance, he offers Megan a chance to see the real conditions in his country after The Company was signed on to supply internal and external security forces.


All hardened criminals are shipped off to MAX facilities and all labeled as malcontents are rounded up and shipped off to Behavioral Purity Centers. Thousands of children are left to fend for themselves and Megan is shown a 9-year-old girl who is caring for her three younger siblings on the streets and wherever they can find shelter.


Upon return to Megan's plane, she instructs the captain to go to Vienna where the three Baltic states are to sign with The Company in a grand ceremony the next day. This is against her father's instructions that, upon leaving Albania, she is to fly to one of his private islands in the Caribbean. 


Consequences to the plot

Megan is more determined than ever to prove she should be CEO is going to do something drastic to prove it.

Why does it matter to Megan’s inner struggle?

We are left to wonder; is Megan about to make a stand for the sake of the children of Albania or for herself?
