Chapter 1

The busy streets of San Francisco were alive with the energy of ambition and desire. Skyscrapers towered above, casting long shadows over the crowded sidewalks. The sound of car horns and chatter filled the air, creating a symphony of urban life. Among the throngs of people making their way through the city, a figure stood out from the rest. Alexander Stone, the dashing and enigmatic billionaire, strode confidently down the sidewalk, his tailored suit fitting him like a second skin. His dark hair was perfectly styled, and his piercing blue eyes seemed to see everything around him.

As he made his way to his office in one of the city's most prestigious buildings, Alexander Stone, the CEO of Stone Enterprises, couldn't help but feel a sense of satisfaction. He had worked hard to build his empire, starting from nothing and clawing his way to the top through sheer determination and ambition. Now, he is one of the most powerful men in the city, if not the world. He had a magnetic presence that drew the eyes of passers-by as he made his way through the bustling streets of San Francisco. His reputation preceded him, whispers of his success and wealth following in his wake. Despite the chaos of the city around him, he moved with purpose and elegance, a man in control of his surroundings.

As the CEO of Stone Enterprises, he commands respect and admiration from his peers and competitors alike. Even his foes can see his journey to the top as remarkable, marked by his relentless drive and unwavering determination to build an empire that stands as a testament to his family's legacy. Born into a wealthy family, he had the privilege of growing up with all the comforts and luxuries that money could buy. His family background is one of opulence and influence, with a long line of successful entrepreneurs and business magnates in their lineage. 

From a young age, Alexander was groomed to take over the family business, and it was evident that he possessed the same keen business acumen and strategic vision as his predecessors. However, tragedy struck the Stone family with the untimely demise of their father, Bruno Stone, who had laid a solid foundation for his children to build upon. With his passing, the responsibility of carrying on the family legacy fell squarely on Alexander's shoulders. Despite the immense pressure and expectations placed upon him, Alexander rose to the occasion with grace and determination, proving himself to be a capable and visionary leader. The Stone legacy runs deep and he carries the weight of their name with pride and responsibility. 

He had not experienced fear since childhood and the shame of it had been beaten out to him. Despite that, he had known rage, bitterness, hate, and fear no longer had the power to touch him. His relentless rise to power and influence was featured in many magazines and newspaper features. Since the demise of "Old Bruno," as his friends would always call him, he knew he had chosen this path which had become a complete possibility for him. With every successive year that had passed since then, he had ground tougher and more determined. He had used his brilliant intellect and razor-sharp instincts to build a huge business empire. That he had not had to break the law to become a billionaire was a harsh source of pride to him. 

"Hey Alex, seems it's going to be a busy day at work. his friend, Bruno muttered uneasily. "I wanted to drop by this afternoon "

Alex turned and stopped acknowledging the presence of one of his most trusted pals. "Hey Bruno, how's it going?" The handshake was brief. 

"Not too good. Seems your friends over there are truly smoking something strong ".

Alex felt the urge to quickly dismiss him and enter his office for the day's assignment. But on the other hand, he cannot ignore a man like Bruno.

"Oh yeah? What's the deal with it? I tried to read the newspaper yesterday to understand what Ashley Duncan said, but in all, I can't still make sense out of all these"

"Well, it looks like they're increasing the tax rates for high-income earners and corporations. They're also introducing some new deductions for small businesses". As Bruno spoke, he knew Alex would want to be a little defensive of the President's Chief of Staff. It is not a secret between them that Alex has been a long-time admirer of Ashley Duncan. 

Alex death his friend a look of satisfaction. "That doesn't sound too bad. I mean, it's always tough when taxes go up, but at least they're trying to help out the little guys."

"Yeah, that's true. But I'm a bit worried about how it's going to affect our company on the other end. We might have to make some tough decisions to stay afloat." Bruno accepted, mopping his round, perspiring face.

It was true, Alex acknowledged. More than one observer of the political scene has pointed out that nothing comes easier than spending public money. It appears to belong to nobody, and the temptation is overwhelming to confer in on somebody. In the past years, surely no power has been so much abused by Congress as the power of the purse. The U.S. Treasury was instituted to receive tax money to pay the nation's legitimate bills, but consequently, the taxation has become burdensome on the people that the average taxpayer must hand over to federal, state, and local governments a growing percentage of his earned income. "Well, I hear you. It's tough out there for businesses these days. But maybe this new policy will encourage us to be more innovative and find new ways to generate revenue." 

Bruno looked for approval. "That's a good point. Maybe this is just the push we need to take some risks and try out new ideas. It's all about initiative, right?"

"Exactly. We can't just sit back and wait for things to happen. We have to take the initiative and make things happen for ourselves. Who knows, maybe this new tax policy will be a blessing in disguise." There was a look of satisfaction as he spoke.

Bruno launched into an animated monologue. "That's why you're the boss. I like your optimism, Alex. I know people like you will always take the initiative and make the most of this new situation". Bruno smiled. The two men left for their separate offices. 

Chapter 2

As he entered the lobby of his sleek office building, Alexander's phone buzzed with a notification. With a glance, he saw an email from his assistant reminding him of an upcoming interview with a prominent journalist. Olivia Bennett, a rising star in the media industry, had requested an exclusive interview with the elusive Alexander Stone, and he had finally agreed to meet her. 

Suddenly, it started raining hard. Olivia Bennett pulled her coat tightly around her. She started wishing that she had worn something waterproof instead of her thick navy blue coat which now seemed to be soaking up every wretched drop of water and growing heavier by the minute. 

She also wished that she had the sense to take  a taxi instead of looking foolish by counting her pennies and deciding in favor of the bus, but the bus had been running late so that she had spent the entire journey agonizingly looking at her watch every five minutes to make sure she's keeping to the time.
