“Max. You realize that if your father asks you to join him in all his business affairs, you do realize you have the power to change the outcome of events even before they happen? You realize you could order the daemons to take care of your father’s enemies, do you not?,” asked Alex.
“Why no, grandpere. That was not in my line of thinking at all,” said Max.
“Well you can. You can ask any of those daemons to find the enemies to your father and order their killing,” said Alex.
“I am not certain I would want to do that, Grandpere. I am not in the frame of mind to ask for the death of anyone’s enemy. I rather let that to fate,” said Max.
“You still have your innocence. I can tell by your answer. One day, son, you are going to get angry at the injustice by others and when that day comes…watch out world!,” said Alex.
“Well…would the ordering of a killing be considered murder by proxy?,” asked Lucien.
“I do not care how you look at it. There are times when justice comes too slow. It can take many many years,” said Alex.
