Woah. I'd better make this look good. Brand's gonna beat me up, isn't he? Shit. How come I could walk the Pattern and Aunt Sand couldn't? Because I'm the one with the great destiny. Duh. But I have to slice open my wrists first. Ow. Yeah, but it's for the good of the universe. Yeah, that's it. Wait!! What am I doing? I'm just a little kid. Everyone else has been alive 10 or 20 times as long as me. That makes me small. An ignoramus. Useless. Whimper.
