Plot Summary

The story picks up from the previous story. After The Phantom came back from Baronkhan, Diana is afraid of let Kit go away to the Himalayas, where they won't have any kind of contact for years with him. But the Phantom believes the twins are ready to make by themselves their lives, Kit was born to be the next Phantom.

But while Diana cries while she thinks about how his boy will be years far away from her. The Phantom also can't sleep, because he is worried for Heloise. He remembers he heard the name "Briarson School" somewhere before even Heloise say it to him and then realizes that he read the name in the files from the Hard Drive of "Eric Sahara".

The Phantom reminds Guran, that in that hard drive was the Nomad family files and also enough files to take down the Nomad and his empire of crime. Guran then elaborates, Heloise Walker would be the classmate of Kadia Sahara, the daughter of the Nomad. The Phantom jokes about the matter believing this would be a good time to take Eric Sahara down.

But Guran sees this like a serious matter, one Diana should know about, but Diana is finally accepting their kids are growing up and exciting days are coming for them. So the Phantom decides not to tell Diana the truth because, after all, Kadia Sahara isn't a terrorist, her father is. Briarson is also a big school, they could actually not ever meet.

What Kit doesn't know, is that meanwhile in Briarson School, The Headmistress decides to put her two first African students together, Kadia and Heloise.
