Kushi had schooled her mother and brother how to look at Paul as if he were some god. She told them how he would fall for it and do whatever they asked.
The way they looked at Paul when Kushi revealed “his” brilliant plan to buy a house, as if he were King, had him babbling about all his contacts in the Real Estate business.
They acted overwhelmed as if Paul could do everything.
In a few days his contacts had found a house outside of the city, a large house which needed a bit of work. The price was more than reasonable.
Paul bought it in the name of himself and Kushi.
Her mother was overwhelmed. Kushi had been able to manipulate this man as if her were a puppet. Were all American men this stupid?
