…And now a few words from LEO Logan Pierce on the topic of priorities.
Toshi’s been writing a (completely unpublished) detective series set during the Withering at a refugee camp, for years. His 7th book, Maya Shore: Wither Without You, is turning out to be a hopeless slog, just like the news.
Despite being blind, Toshi keeps himself busy and informed while Markesha is out running mystery packages.
It turns out Franco does have a run for Markesha. Just not the normal, everyday, “legal” kind.
Negotiations between Franco and Markesha reach a pivotal moment.
Franco is being obstinate about giving Markesha work. Out of concern for his other runners, naturally.
Markesha isn’t going to take no for an answer from Franco.
Back into the fray.
Before Markesha can head out, there’s a family tradition to be followed.
This wraps up Act 2. Man, the acts seem like they’re really starting to fly by!
Regardless of Toshi’s misgivings, Markesha is dead set on taking care of things on her own.
