Fiorella is not one to jump on bandwagons, especially when someone is trying to control her mind. Especially when someone is trying to sell her something. Which brings her around to a meeting she attended last week, a meeting in which the speaker talked about meditation and hawked her books.
It was standard con-man technique: talk in a slow, hypnotic voice, smile the whole time, tell a few humorous anecdotes about your initial disbelief in the product, lull people into relaxation, ask for comments or answers, then validate each and every one of them, even if they're contradictory. Let the suckers sell themselves on your value.
Bxxch that she is, Fio didn't cooperate. The emperor had no clothes.
