'I suppose that's true,' James says with a little laugh, because it is. As much as the judiciary or the constabulary might talk about eliminating crime, to suppose that that's really what they want in the long term is simply naive. Jack's words have more behind them than just that, though, and James finds himself curious about what exactly that is. If Jack himself is indebted to yesterday, as he put it, if he cares that he is.

Because it's not crime they're talking about, after all, it's just living. James absently watches Jack's Adam's apple bob as he swallows, catching the swift-flicker of his tongue as he licks the taste of vodka from his lips.

'So I suppose,' he murmurs, chasing the edge of a thought, 'the question would then be not how deep the woods are, but what one might be chasing into them.'

He pauses, taking a small sip of his own drink, and mulling his thoughts about. 'Though I think... there are ways to circumvent consequence, if one looks at something the right way. Patience and thought, instead of just flinging oneself headlong into things.'
