Returning to Jasper City as I promised, but this time I’m focusing on a different character. This is Dexter, who also plays an important role in the story as Edward’s greatest threat. In this passage, Dexter has a conversation with Mayor Calvin, as the latter decides whether he’s ready to take on such a great promotion.
“”I saw you work in the alley,” The Mayor said, interrupting the thoughts and wandering mind of Citizen C-121. “That was very impressive of you.”
“I was just doing my job, Mr. Mayor,” C-121 said simply.
“You spoke so strongly, as if you believe in all of the ideals as you spoke.”
“But I do!” Was the Mayor questioning his loyalty?”
Is Dexter in trouble now?
More from Jasper City next week! I’ll focus on a different major character then.
