I understand why this group was chosen. I understand more why they are Bravo. They are raw. On that note, maybe it could be said that I am not one to judge, but that is why I am here; with jury duty and execution to be on the souls of those with bloodier hands than mine. Observant does not mean weak and dead does not mean inconsequential. Monsieur Lodge will have to learn that. While it is my job to see how these baby birds use their wings, I will not allow them to sully Lovecraft’s reputation and stoop to disrespectful tactics, such as used by Terrell and Squibb. There is a beauty in death. A poetry, even in the pain, and I will intervene on behalf of Lovecraft for the sake of clientele as much as ourselves.
As wretched and miserable as that poor couple seemed in their poverty, they had each other. They had a deep love. I’d say I respect that, but maybe I just want it in a way that forces me to protect it. Something that I know now I never had.
