Grazie was inconsolable this morning. Overnight she has decided she cannot be the reason for Kip’s imprisonment. She wants to return to the west end as soon as possible.
I cautioned her to await developments and held up the value of being patient in such matters. The widow spoke out and affirmed my words in her hearing.
Still she was restless and I feared she would slip away, given the opportunity.
Thankfully Lyle brought word from Kip. The former west end leader declared he would never allow himself to be exchanged for anyone else or anything. And as he can always refuse the mark, he is certain Grazie’s father will force it on her.
Now we await Moglen’s next move.
