She, in his estimation, was just about to get her clock cleaned. Better that it happen with those who love her than in a major competition in a higher risk venue.

That would be junk food for the ego and more money than could be used wisely. The tragic part, something dearly important to her would be subordinated to this unprecedented distraction.

He wondered how, beyond what he had already done, would help this high achiever with an unlikely background.

His confidence that even the most intractable of the obstacles referred to in the latest decoded chapters was high indeed.
