Tattletale stuck out her tongue at him, then turned back to me, “And people are going to be scared to take him out if it means releasing Shatterbird. Picture yourself in their shoes. It’s not a comfortable position to be in if you’re itching to retaliate.”
Oooh, that’s a really good point.
I’m still not convinced she’s not going to get loose at some very inconvenient point anyway, but for now she can act as a deterrent.
“It’s not a comfortable position to be in anyways, even with him on the team,” I said, glancing over at Shatterbird. Not that we hadn’t taken countermeasures, but… yeah.
Ah, yeah, looks like Taylor is on the same page.
Though honestly, the repeated acknowledgements of the risk kind of reduce my certainty that it’s going to happen.
…not by much.
