Callie (a Patron cameo from Zaukodar) has had a lot to think about in the intervening days.
My friend's 6 year old daughter, whom I based Tamberlane on, has a fatal brain tumor and a prognosis of 1 year to live. I'm asking folks who love Tamberlane, if they're able, to throw a couple of dollars at their GoFundMe to give Anastasia a wonderful last year. Find out more here.
CALLIE: It's just...the topic of That Place came up during class.
BELFRY: Oh, no...
CALLIE: And I tried to steer the topic away but Jentzen was... insistent.
CALLIE: He was upset that I wasn't more... forthcoming.
CALLIE: And I...
CALLIE: I reacted...
CALLIE: I'm not proud. We argued in front of the children!
CALLIE: The poor things were so upset!
CALLIE: But he blindsided me! And the Edicts! We can't speak about it in class!
CALLIE: Perhaps if he had approached me in private first...
CALLIE: I didn't know what to do. I still don't.
CALLIE: I wish it had never happened.
CALLIE: É só...que o tópico Daquele Lugar veio durante a aula.
BELFRY: Oh, não...
CALLIE: E eu tentei mudar de assunto mais o Jentzen foi... insistente.
CALLIE: Ele estava chateado que eu não fui mais... direta.
CALLIE: E eu...
CALLIE: Eu reagi...
CALLIE: Eu não me orgulho disso. Nós discutimos na frente das crianças!
CALLIE: As pobres coisas ficaram tão chateadas!
CALLIE: Mas ele virou o olho pra mim! E os Éditos! Não podemos falar sobre isso na sala de aula!
CALLIE: Talvez se ele tivesse me chamado em privado primeiro...
CALLIE: Eu não soube o que fazer. Eu ainda não sei.
CALLIE: Eu desejo que nunca tivesse acontecido.
