23. Twenty Two: Trust Me
Okay, so, at this point you must have realized that this story has been centered around me. And, as such, you’ve missed a few things. Or I’ve omitted a few things for the purpose of telling a good story. Who’s going to argue about the details, huh? My point is, this story that I’m telling has, so far, been all about me.
….Except it’s not. Though I am without a doubt the most important character in this story, I am not the only character. There’s also that annoying boy I’ve been going on about. What was his name? Dimitri? Darren? Oh, Damian, wasn’t it? Yes, him. And, if you’ve been paying attention, Damian was kidnapped.
During this time, you must have realized that I couldn’t very well tell you what was going on in his pitiful little life because I didn’t know, right? Right. Well, he’s back now, and I think it’s probably time I fill you in on what you missed.
So, let me back up. I’ll tell you what happened on Damian’s side just as he told me when he got back…. give or take a bit. But it’ll be totally accurate. I promise. Come on, just trust me.
Here we go.
