To stop time.  If indeed this is not an illusion from Angelique, then stopping time is exactly what I have done.

I used to dread this amber into which I’ve been cast.  And now, I see it as an invitation to a life unlike any other.  To deny Miss Winters the opportunity to travel with me would be a cruelty.

I ponder cruelty, now.  Have I been cruel to people such as Miss Evans, thinking them shadows of their true selves from my age?  Or was I simply surviving?

I survive, and so there is some quantum of proof.  And I am far more vulnerable to them than they are to me.  Devlin is one such threat.  He seems intent on exposing me.  I owe him nothing, whereas I owe the future all.  And Miss Winters is a key to that future.
