"Chapter 1: Athena Carvallo Revealed - The Dominator Gene" Athena was a woman of power and means. She lived right next to the beach with her husband and son in a sprawling mansion built in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in the country, but one could make no mistake and think she was a kept woman. The queen ruled her castle by the shore ruthlessly. The servants feared her violent temper and malicious nature. Her affection was reserved for her husband and son. Anyone else was fair game. It was a warm day in mid-summer and the sharp clicking of her gold sling back heels resonated on the marbles floors, which were polished until they gleamed brightly from the rays of the midday sun that poured through the large bay window at the end of the hall. Athena strode through the golden pools on the floor without even taking notice. The train of her long yellow dress swirled about in her wake. Halfway down the length of the hallway she turned and pushed open heavy, dark mahogany doors to enter her husband's home office. Without pause, she strode over to his large mahogany desk near the window to retrieve the record from his desk, which contained all the information from the African testing of the new XSA246 drug. His desk looked as though he had taken every single file they had and stacked them on the desk in an effort to cover the tabletop. Athena sucked her teeth in disgust but continued her search. It was about time they figured out a proper contingency plan to deal with the situation before it got too far out of control.
