1056

She is dead.  She refused to sign the confession that she killed Bruno.  However, Roxanne lives and breathes.

I have Julia and Quentin’s freedom in my grasp, as well as Maggie’s gratitude.  Everything rests on visiting Stokes!  As I departed to do so, I had the warmest expression of gratitude I have ever seen from her.

There was a time when I would have quite literally killed for such a glance.  But it comes a new time.  And Roxanne drives my heart.

Progress always comes too late.
