I'm writing this letter because I want you all to know I'm not involved.
What's happening now is vicious. I'm not a vicious person. I wouldn't ever
hurt anybody. Its just that I was angry. I felt she had gotten off
lightly in the whole process. So I wanted her to know what it was like.
To be hunted. What it was like for Val.
And she could take it. More: she was exploring. Hungry and penitent. I
gave her the punishment she wanted. Wanted and perhaps deserved. "Judge
not, lest ye be judged" -- but if it weren't for her things might be
different today. Val was a friend.
But now is something different. Something more primeval. Violence isn't
what I had in mind -- this community has had enough violence. I don't
know anything about it -- the details But I can sense it. I don't have to
tell you, officers, that she is in *real danger*.
You will doubtless have questions. In the meantime:
