Rosa: I turned my packs of vicious lawyers and ravenous accountants loose on your offer and books. As things stand, even with the improving economy, you're going to lose your shop in the next year or two. And even then, one bad setback could cost you everything you own. But, that of course, isn't the end of the matter.
Bob: It's that bad?
Rosa: That's being optimistic. Also, your location is killing you. The neighborhood is rougher than it used to be, which discourages new business. You don't have enough space for a proper storefront. And there's no room to expand. And if I know your landlord, he's wanting a big jump in rent and probably asking for a 5 or 10 year commitment.
Aoi: I was complementing Rocky on the beautiful work you did on my car. It's important to us because it originally belonged to Carly's American grandfather. I don't want anyone else touching it. She told me you don't do more automotive restorations because you don't have a place to keep a car, or very many bikes, for that matter, overnight.
KC: We have been looking for a new location, but nothing suitable in our price range has turned up.
Rosa: I know how frustrating that can be. Cartmart was still a fairly small business when I met my Louis.
Aoi: As friends and employers of my daughter-in-law to be, and being that she is Rosa's granddaughter, we can't sit by and let you fail. It would look bad. But a hand-out would do neither your pride, nor your relationship with Rocky any good.
Rosa: But I think we can help each other.
KC: We can?
Aoi: We were completely stumped on an appropriate wedding gift for Rocky-chan.
Rosa: Instead of your giving Rocky a one third share of your business, we propose to BUY half of your company to make her, and Carly, your equal partners. Oh, and please let Carly do your books. My accountants had some things to say about yours that weren't all printable.
