"Billy Bones is a dutiful boatswain who commands enormous respect from his crew as well as from myself. I trust him a thousand times more than I would a rodent like yourself. I told you once, I won’t tell you again. I trust Billy."
The lying we could forgive. Singleton we could forgive. We could forgive all of it. But not Billy. That requires an answer. When the time comes we need to know that you won’t stand in the way. I understand he’s your friend. But once we have the money, Flint dies. No arguments.
And I know things. Secrets that must never be told. Knowledge that must never be spoken, knowledge that will make parasite gods blaze. So come on then, take it! You have it all!
I don’t want your heebies-jeebies affecting our little Lily Nora.
