He needs to find a balance that shows he sincerely cares about her and her future and not just about filling his pockets and pleasing his corporate and political buddies at her expense. By doing this, he could actually maximize his investment.
If he fails to do this, he will live up to my example. Time will tell.
BTW: I hate to hear or read about Petra described as anybody's 'product'. It's a disgusting description for obvious reasons.
That's scary indeed. Sounds like he owns her. Bruce described this type of thinking, as people treating Petra like she's some kind of [Race] "Horse" or something. I said a [lesser] "commodity" myself.
So yeah, Petronius's description and Cernosek's sense of entitlement and apparent arrogance made me uncomfortable as well.
