    Summary

    In which Roy's world gets bigger and smaller at the same time.

     

    The half-day of campaign filming goes about as well as can be expected. The art director tries to coax Roy into looking the precise degree of stern and serious - which makes Keeley laugh. “You spend half your career scowling, and now you’ve got stage fright?” she asks, in mock-exasperation.

    Three months ago, Roy would have mistaken it for genuine exasperation, but in those three months he’s been studying Keeley Jones with the same single-minded focus he used to devote to poring over game reels and perfecting plays.

    It’s won him a nation’s heart before, but he finds lately he cares more about one particular heart; finds that one whoop of delighted laughter from her means more than the echoes of applause in some distant stadium ever had.

    Summary

    “Sleep on it,” Karen tells him. “If you’re still not feeling it by tomorrow, just shoot me a text and let me know.” She cracks a grin. “Don’t worry, there’s a pile of headline-making material sitting on my desk if this falls through.”

    Curtis takes her advice and really thinks it over. Ultimately, it comes down to fear—his. And he refuses to let it drag him down. If he can’t practice what he’s preaching, he shouldn’t be running a group at all.

    He texts her first thing in the morning: Hi Karen, it’s Curtis. I’m in.

    Summary

    The last thing he had seen as he was lead out of the courtroom had been the hard line of Qui-Gon’s shoulders as he stood there in the front row. His master had not turned around.

    It is the last image he sees before he falls asleep.
