Heath stared blankly at the half filled glass of scotch he held in his hand. He was sitting on the company jet flying back from China. He had just closed one of the most integral shipping contracts in his career, but he was not happy. He felt uneasy. Uneasy at the thought of having to go back home to those gold-digging, high-priced courtesans he had waited for him. He emptied the contents of the glass in one gulp and swallowed the liquid.

It only assisted in making the jet spin. He reclined his seat back and pinched the bridge of his nose. Finding a bride was harder than he thought and so was getting Agatha, the poorly dressed, comely lady off of his mind...
