“Huh?” said Gladys.
“Pardon?” said the Master.
“I am serious.” Adam took another step forward. “We could do so much together. I acknowledge that you are powerful. There can be no doubt. And with your power you could do so much to improve society for everyone. We could help you do it.”

“Well, your criminal lifestyle must be lonely. You could have allies. Friends.”
“Hardly necessary. I have astounding self esteem.”
The Master raised a hand and Adam slammed into the wall.
