-And the one who is important can’t be good?

-He can’t be…respectively, he must not be. He needs to be responsible. He needs to build his own evil in himself so that it won’t happen to him to actually start believing in goodness. He needs to doubt. And that means being careful, watching, hearing (and even stalking), hunting words, twist them and roll them so that he would find a hidden meaning, a meaning that threatens and that is dangerous. That’s how he would determine his own idea, attitude, and his own doing. If I know that there is a scamp existing who wants to set my house on fire (and that scamp really exists), and I won’t just sit next to my warm fireplace and quote „be or not to be“ with tears in my eyes. Believing that maybe he actually won’t set…and wait that I become a tragic face. I will charge my gun and I will stalk behind the windows o that I can kill that scamp before he sets the fire on.

-But what if the scamp thinks: Look If I don’t set him on fire, he would set me on fire?

-It doesn’t matter what the scamp thinks, it only matters what he is doing. It only matters that I’m stronger than him or much skilled than him.

-Ranko Marinković, Cyclops

Zahra Shakir: Liking the premise of a writers story

Samantha: This book is amazing though I would have been happier if it wasn't so short and get more drama from Luke n his twin. Also see how their blend over as years go by with more fiction. It a very NYC mafia short story that lives u with a lot of unanswered questions.
