I think you know what this will provoke. I think you know how dangerous the consequences promise to be, and I think you knew that before you took up the knife. I think I know why you did it, and I don’t think it had anything to do with him or with her or with gold. I think it had to do with something entirely different… and I understand. So I will not let those consequences touch you. I will stand in between you and them, and I will protect you.
