State your designation for the record, please.
You were a Seeker, correct?
Staccato of paper against the table.
We read your file. We know about your assignments. We know what you did. Do you have anything to say about it?
I believe actions speak louder than words.
You were re-evaluated, twice. Did you disobey orders?
If I had, I wouldn’t be here. I failed to meet expectations.
Can you tell us anything more?
The first time, I failed to turn in a traitor I uncovered.
Polka dot mugs and chopped ginger.
She was kind to me.
And the other time?
I attempted to warn a target.
Sheet music on the floor. Blood on ivory keys.
Your file says you are compassionate. Do you think this is true?
I don’t know. I haven’t had the chance to find out.
If you were released, what would you do?
The air dances in her lungs.
I don’t know.
That’s not enough.
I think I would... I think I would try to make amends.
For what you did?
Action, reaction, inaction.
For what I didn’t do.
One last question before you go. Do you have a name?
Yellow. Flowers and weeds and wood. Moss and coffee and jazz.
