Interview with Roman Nicolis

Hi this is Tmonique Stephens, I’m here interviewing Roman Nicolis, CEO of Nicolis Security. In light of recent events concerning The Village Strangler he, surprisingly, requested this interview to set the record straight.

Tmonique Stephens: “Mr. Nicolis, you’ve had a very interesting summer.”

Roman Nicolis: (he chuckles) “So I’ve heard. Ask me what you want to know.”

TMS: “Your company is not known for personal protection. Why did you agree to protect Stella Walker, the latest victim of The Village Strangler?”

RN: “She was a unique case. She needed immediate assistance. Without our help she would be dead.”

TMS: “Is it true you’re keeping her at your mansion?”

RN: “I can’t confirm or deny that statement.”

TMS: “How does your fiancée, Bianca feel about your house guest?”

RN: “I’m no longer engaged.”

TMS: “Really, the wedding was three months away. Have you already met the next Mrs. Roman Nicolis?”

RN: “My personal life isn’t up for discussion.”

TMS: “If that’s the case then this interview is over.”

(Roman stands up to leave.)

TMS: Really, it was a joke. (laughs nervously. Roman sits back down, unimpressed) Okay…you have a very interesting family. Can you tell us more about them?

RN: “There is not much to tell. I have 6 brothers. Thane, E.J., Avery, Tyrone, Brayden and Quin. Oh, and Hector, my butler.”

TMS: “Yes, but they’re not really your brothers. Not biologically.”

RN: “Blood couldn’t make us any closer. Many are descendants of my sister Aria. They were orphaned and adopted by me.”

TMS: “Who lets a single man adopt young boys?”

RN: “Are you saying I did something illegal?”

TMS: “Did you?”

RN: (His smile wasn’t warm and welcoming)

TMS: “You look surprisingly youthful for someone who adopted several young boys that are now adult men. What’s your secret?”

RN: “Plenty of water and eight hours of sleep”

TMS: “Is it true there has been a Nicolis in every war since The Revolution?”

RN: (his face shuttered) Possibly.

TMS: “More than possibly. I’ve done some research and dating back to the 1777 there’s documentation of one a Roman Marius Nicolis. And in each subsequent war I’ve found variations of that name until The Vietnam war. You come from a long line of military men.”

RN: “Is that an insult or a compliment, Mrs. Stephens?”

TMS: “Definitely a compliment. I also discovered some pictures of those men. They all have a striking resemblance to you. Any comment.”

RN: Strong genes.

TMS: “Speaking of genes, is there anything you’d like to say about your twin?”

RN: “My twin is dead. There’s nothing more to say. Next question.”

Tmonique shuffles her papers, searching for a question to get the interview back on track.

TMS: “You’re rumored to be very wealthy, but no one knows how you obtained your wealth. Do you want to comment on it?”

RN: “An inheritance from a very distant relative.”

TMS: “What is your biggest regret?”

RN: “This interview.”

TMS: “Come on. Give me one.”

RN: “… I have many regrets. None I care to share with your rapacious readers.”

TMS: “Why did you agree?”

RN: “Lack of good judgment.” (He stood) “Your time is up Mrs. Stephens.”

TMS: “One last question. If there was one thing you could change, what would it be?”

RN: (He pauses. For a brief moment his gaze becomes distant, almost wistful. Then his features became guarded) “I’d change nothing. I would live my life as I have, on my own terms with no regrets. (He leaves)
