So "Father", was it your intention to send marion back to me so she could murder me in my sleep? You very nearly succeeded. I am very lucky to have another doll who is loyal to me who prevented the coup de gras.
That murderous mannequin is probably miles from Steelhead by now.
Perhaps you were as taken in by blood-tinged sweetness as I was. Perhaps she was as eager a minion for your Spark madness as she was for me.
If and when you come back from your expedition to find Professor Burro, "Doctor Mason", we will have a nice long talk. I've tolerated your delusions for long enough. It is time for a cure.
