“The past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.” – The Lion King

The white pearls neatly entwined on her fingers while she was checking him trying the grey tuxedo. Most charming man in the entire universe, she thought. The smile that radiated from those lips were clear indication he loved it. She tapped for the manager and got the garment finalized.

Roger got the hint and bent down to pick Madam’s suitcase. The scars on her hands are more visible when she holds the pen. These hands have written countless destinies, saved many empires and had done unforgettable too; thought the manager.

Holding his hand she climbed inside the motorcar. Just about when the engine broke to the life she saw a rugged little girl waving at her feverously. Her tiny nod called the little girl towards the car when Roger felt the discomfort.

He never liked Madam breaking the security protocol, and asked his men to provide an extra layer of protection. As the girl approached near their car and took her hands out from trousers, the whole squad got berserk.

Madam has seen this drama many times, she gave out a smirk and called little girl towards her. Those tiny hands came out from torn pockets, with a crumpled paper in them. Madam carefully took the paper and sent the girl going safe way.

Le Chiffre holds spectre in Russia

Madam M. burns the paper to ashes and waves to move forward. The handsome young lad sitting next to her asks about the message. She smiles and tells him to WAIT!

‘There is always a right time for everything Jr. Learn from past and plan your next move’

M is on the mission to make new lineage of MIB intelligence squad. The gang who is away from personal agenda and are trust-worthy, unlike their predecessors. Her relation with Bond, James Bond taught her that.

“The past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.”
