Everyone has made the leap of logic and lines up the rumored sacrifice with the person of our young friend.
I was at the point of second guessing and backing off on that conclusion, banking on the fact that any hard evidence to the connection is completely lacking, when Elijah interjected that Mawuli is indeed in Moglen’s clutches and it is Stan’s intent to sacrifice the boy.
Then I knew in my heart that the altar had been replaced once again up on the heights above Sy’s old redoubt.
And I knew that we would be returning there.
Thankfully before that thought could immobilize me, Elijah set me some tasks around the hiding place that could benefit from my attention.
