Yep Paul lost his company twice. The first time no money, no contract, more emotional, the second time he gets $10 Million for real.(Ch 16) When he marries Diane he gets half of something that will get much bigger also, as do Didier and Erica. The Countess is not 'poor' either. Thanks to Blake for trying to take Paul's side, I did not want you to worry about 'poor' Paul. He will not have to eat only peanut butter and jelly sandwiches all the time.
