    Summary

    “I want to make you happy,” Martin finally says, his voice breaking the silence like a hammer swinging forward to shatter glass, and when Jon glances over, he sees him looking down and away like it’s some sort of confession. “But I don’t want to go too far. I’m sorry.”

    Summary

    It’s Basira who catches onto it.

    The collective shift that seems to come over them when heading in or out of the Institute. Not just the oppressive sensation of being observed, their every move catalogued for the voyeuristic cravings of some unseen Eye(s). That feeling remained with them even when they left the Institute these days, but it was always stronger inside its walls. That wasn’t the change. Nor was it the point.

    The point was: making life worse for Jonathan Sims.
