Gladys asked “Is the Master of Trepanning really in Port Nadine?”
“I dunno. Could be.”
“So no matter which escapee he picked, you would have said we go there.”
“Look, there’s definitely bad superhumans there. Something is up. Adam wants to make up for mistakes by doing good, right? We can do good there.”
“Why not tell him that?”
“We want to earn the kid’s trust. That means we gotta lie enough that he thinks he’s choosing.”
Gladys sighed. “Sometimes I hate that you’re the person who makes the most sense to me.”
