"You know them?" Osias rubbed the top of his head. His shoulders seemed to relax. "Listen..." his voice sounded a bit apologetic. "I hope you're right... I can't begin to tell you how many times one of my dumb-a** decisions have brought pain to others... Let's just make sure not going after him ain't one of those dumb-a** decisions." After saying so, Osais began tapping his foot anxiously. "On second thought, no, I'd like to see him. I have to see with my own eyes. Please, I have to know." His left eye accidentally shed a tear as he came to the realization that he was fighting a losing battle. His shoulders fell as he exhaled. No matter how hard he'd fight, there was nothing more he could do. He knew this. He wiped his nose and made his way to the opposite end of the room already knowing her answer.
