When Harry returned, something very peculiar had happened the next night. It seemed just as Harry was settling in, just as Cheri was tending to him, Elena had received a phone call from Nickolaus Richter. Harry didn’t react immediately, instead waiting for several days, a week or so, before reaching out to settle this.
Harry approached Imogen Harper with a big bouquet of flowers, and both he and James Mason managed to get inside her apartment. A conversation was had about Nick, and how he spent far too much time fawning over Harry’s wife. A compromise was promised: if Nick left Elena alone, than Harry would leave Imogen alone.
When Nick arrived, he tried to power past James, who in turn broke Nick’s grip on him, grabbed his junk and twisted. James always said he was a nutcracker. After Harry and Nick shook on this business arrangement and both Harry and James left, Nick fell to the ground in pain.
