They wouldn't have been safe if I'd done it. If I'd given in to Chase's threats, given him what he wanted from me, nothing would have changed except his power levels. And what then, when he felt himself sliding under from it still? He'd have gone after Pogue's power. Reid's. Tyler's. Just sliding through each of us, threatening the people we loved until he had it all.

I couldn't let that happen. I didn't know if I could stop him, but I knew I couldn't give in. He still would have killed Sarah. He liked the feel of it. I don't know about Pogue and Kate. After all, he could use Kate again to get Pogue's power in a few months, though I'm not sure he was thinking that clearly. But my sacrifice wasn't going to "save" them.

He wanted me to be a martyr. Ipswich's own Jesus Christ. But all those centuries of his family living away from the rest of the bloodlines left him not understanding the balance we found. You don't will your power away. It's against the Covenant. His father shouldn't have done so.

Mine shouldn't have either. Twice the power I should have, twice the seduction to use it. I'm holding on, but everything's thrown out of balance. I can't help but wonder if I'm the threat now.
