It was a typical day in Vegas, Daniela was settling in just as she’d expected. After all, she was a master adapter, just one skill she had tucked away in her arsenal. It had been only a few weeks since the extended portion of the Rinaldi clan had arrived back into Vegas. They’d stepped off the plane dressed in black and just in time for the funeral of whatever dearly departed cousin that had just bit the dust, Not that Dani cared, after all he was dead now, it made no sense to learn an extra name, or make more effort to care internally about the dead.

The girl had com into her own, skill evolving, growing, allowing her to have everything she wanted, when she wanted it with very little effort on her part. Daniela’s deceptive ways had earned her glory of her own without consequence and the redhead relished in it. So, imagine her surprise when she first laid eyes on her idol. Though it was unreadable in her porcelain features, it was disappointment. hidden behind Dani’s facade. This was the infamous Natalia Rinaldi that she’d heard so much about? Dani had to be rational about her thoughts, she’d been informed about the trauma the girl's faced, and though it was unreadable in the looks of soft distain she’d thrown, Daniela could see it in her eyes.
