Frustrated by his lack of success, he is desperate for a taste of the fame he believed he deserved. It is during this time of desperation that he encountered a mysterious man in the shadows.

The man in the shadows, his face obscured by darkness as he offers John an opportunity that seemed too good to be true. He promises John that he can grant him the fame he desired, but in exchange, John would have to make a deal.

However, soon John begins to realize the true cost of his deal. The fame he had obtained comes at a heavy price. He finds himself tangled in a web of deceit and manipulation. The man in the shadows demands more from him, pushing him to achieve greater heights and constantly reminding him of the consequences if he were to fail.
