Nathan smirked inwardly as he noticed Gregor sidle up close. Always has to know what's going on, that one does. I suppose it's because he thinks he's in charge. Nathan employed a trick he usually used when Gregor was listening in when not wanted. As he spoke, he subtly altered Gregor's perception of the words coming from his lips, so that he heard what Nathan wanted him to hear, and not what he was actually saying.
"Contessa, your father is one of the Five, the group of men that run the Technocracy."..."Contessa, all we basically know is that your father might somehow be involved with the Technocracy."
"Gregor doesn't know this, and I am keeping him from hearing what we say, so make sure you never speak of this to anyone but Anna or myself."..."We are currently investigating the possibility, and the plans are in case we should ever confirm those suspicions."
"All Gregor and his idiots know is that your father is wealthy, so they plan to rob him one day, to fund the movement. They have no clue that to do so is to court death for all of them."..."I hope that you will decide to help us, and with luck, your father is innocent, and could perhaps be persuaded to aid us."
"Remember, Contessa, speak of this to no one but Anna or myself. We are the only ones you can trust here."..."..................." Gregor heard nothing, only saw Nathan and Contessa looking at each other silently for a few seconds, then Contessa nodded. Nathan couldn't resist throwing the goblin off a little.
Nathan walked toward the stairs. "Come, Anna. Our young friend Lewis has straddled the fence long enough. Now is the time for a decision."
