“I have so many ideas, none of which Carla will listen to. We need to expand the range and move away from the run of the mill stuff that the machinists can churn out in their sleep.

Stephen heaped praise on Sarah, before hinting at his own dark plan for her.
She asked him to help prove her ideas to Carla, and he replied: “Sure anything you want – and if she doesn’t go for it, we’ll just stage a hostile takeover.”
