Goliath and the Girl

{excerpt from recovered journal}

I’m really grateful Marx didn’t get a chance to contact us within the hour, like he wanted to.  I might have said something.

I didn’t know how I was supposed to keep anything from Sophia.  She read my mind.  Easily.

I didn’t know why he wanted me to keep her away from the Psion Guild, but I should have guessed.  At the time, I thought it was just because of Tower’s history with the psionic trials.  Should have guessed.

[sigh]  He called me the right man for the job.  [pause]  I thought I was actually going to make it a full day without someone making fun of me for being a clone.  [scoff]  I was on my way until he said that.

Sophia already had me spoiled, I guess.

And that’s why…. [growl]  I would have said something.  I really would have.

I could hear what he meant when he said “make sure she trusts you for the duration of the mission.”  What he meant was, “to  hell with the girl as soon as the mission’s over.”

Thinking back, he kind of sounded desperate.  He was scared of something.  I think it must have been the idea of us going to the guild.

[pause]  Would have saved us so much trouble.
