> "And I think, then, that we can both agree there is no need to... excessively bring either of them into this."
> Anonymous and Randall, you presume she means.
"I thought that was the entire purpose of your being here - to ensure that they do not have to become involved.
> Glamour only cracks a small grin, and you nod in understanding.
> Another test.
