Every minute they were stalling was every extra minute Tam had to be with the Neverseen.
But Sophie was done. She was sick and tired of being bossed by the Black Swan, tired of being fussed over by so many people like she was a doll.
She was project Moonlark, they had made for a purpose she didn't know............yet, but she had her own purpose, her own goal. She might be the Black Swan's creation but the choice was hers. One mistake and everything Sophie and her friends stood for would disappear, one wrong choice and everything would redo itself, all their hard work and planning was for nothing.
'You are their little puppet' Gethen's voice taunted her in her dreams, but it wasn't going to last long. Sophie would stop it, no matter what it might take, she'll make her own path, she'd already put enough lives in danger.
The solution was right there, it wasn't the best way but it was the only, she never played by the rules of the game but it was time that there were no rules at all. She was under no one, no one was under her, it was her and only her choice to make. She had it planned, she wasn't their puppet anymore, she never was. She took the only way that gave her answers. She needed them now more desperately than anything else.
She will find them and make knowledge her true, most powerful weapon ever. She won't give in to anyone, it was her legacy to live up to.
