“You have to kill. Or else you might as well just kill yourself.” ~Richard
People have told Morgan this before. What makes this different? It’s not the words. It’s maybe the timing. But it’s not even just that. It’s the story. It’s the way it was said. And it’s the fact that Morgan was ready and finally felt that he understood what was at stake and understood himself and his own philosophy and felt that someone understood him.
We don’t listen to people if we feel like they are just telling us what to do. We want people to understand us. We want people to listen to us. Eastman listened to Morgan. He understood Morgan. He cared about Morgan.
Our group didn’t do that. They tried to bully him. They didn’t take the time to get to know him or understand him. It’s hard to take time in this world. But they just talked at him. They never talked to him. They never listened to him. Why would he want to change for them? Why would he want to do something that would make him go crazy again?
Richard didn’t do it intentionally, but he shared his story. He shared what he wanted for the Kingdom. He told Morgan things about Morgan that Morgan knew were true. Morgan felt understood. He knew what he had to do. He saw what his inaction was getting him again. He remembered what it got him before.
When he killed Richard, he killed the Morgan that doesn’t make decisions. He took the chance that he won’t go completely insane again. But the chance is better than doing nothing. Better than waiting.
