Goodbye to E’s best friend and goodbye to E’s company. Disenfranchised by the turmoil at work, Alex secured a new job in Dallas. E’s company will be paralyzed without him.

On one hand, we are shocked. He just got married! No honeymoon, no preparation, no closure, just frantic evacuation. But we get why.

What can we do? I fear this is all some nasty plot from rival stockholders. How foolish, really. Like shooting yourself in the foot.
