WEBVTT 1 00:00:00.160 --> 00:00:05.799 Previously on down to folk, more like that's some point last week. Buried 2 00:00:05.879 --> 00:00:09.470 in all of Chad's bullshit, was this critical piece of the story that we 3 00:00:09.550 --> 00:00:16.309 are kicking the show off with. In case you missed it. Yeah, 4 00:00:17.390 --> 00:00:49.049 Hey, Oh, hello, Day Dad. No, no, no, 5 00:01:00.600 --> 00:01:22.980 Hey, hey, my, my, what do you where? Do you 6 00:01:23.099 --> 00:01:34.730 think happened?

My Name is Jessica Johnson, and this week we 8 00:01:38.769 --> 00:01:44.489 have oh hey, Chad, hey jes I have someone coming in to fill 9 00:01:44.609 --> 00:01:49.000 in for me. Is Everything okay? Yeah, but with everyone, you 10 00:01:49.079 --> 00:01:56.159 know I'm taking off. I figured I would just, you know, chill. 11 00:01:56.760 --> 00:02:00.079 You know what our vacation policy is here. Oh, I'm not taking 12 00:02:00.239 --> 00:02:07.110 vacation, I'm just, you know, now working. Mr Warrington has explicit 13 00:02:07.189 --> 00:02:12.870 rules regarding you know, I don't listen to what Lloyd says. So I'm 14 00:02:12.870 --> 00:02:15.979 going to need you're going to need to keep your mouth shut where there's going 15 00:02:16.020 --> 00:02:23.539 to be a huge video week of hours of compromising videos involving you and you 16 00:02:23.659 --> 00:02:28.060 know who. You wouldn't do that. I don't want to. You know 17 00:02:28.139 --> 00:02:30.930 how I feel about giving up my private collection, but you want to play 18 00:02:31.009 --> 00:02:35.849 hard ball, I'm game. Fine, we are thing, but those videos 19 00:02:35.889 --> 00:02:39.610 go nowhere. Good girl. Thank you. First up this week we have 20 00:02:39.729 --> 00:02:44.169 aerial. Of course you're going to put her up first. Are you done? 21 00:02:45.520 --> 00:02:57.879 No, probably not. You're disgusting. The cow was a bit of 22 00:02:57.960 --> 00:03:01.030 a burden. Every Day Jack had to make the same track to try to 23 00:03:01.110 --> 00:03:06.949 sell the wretched thing. It wasn't the prettiest looking cow, as she grown 24 00:03:07.030 --> 00:03:10.030 old and skinny. Her eyes were too small and her ears were too big 25 00:03:10.509 --> 00:03:15.580 and her hoofs were too long and her tail was too short. Still, 26 00:03:15.099 --> 00:03:19.419 some one must be in need of a cow, and a little silver would 27 00:03:19.419 --> 00:03:23.300 go a long way to feed the boy and his mother. Now, this 28 00:03:23.419 --> 00:03:25.819 day, as he walked along, he encountered a funny little man in a 29 00:03:25.979 --> 00:03:30.289 coat that was too tight, pants that were too loose, hair that was 30 00:03:30.409 --> 00:03:35.650 too thin on his head and too thick on his hands. Hello boy, 31 00:03:36.169 --> 00:03:39.810 what brings you this way to day? Jack smiled politely and told the strange 32 00:03:39.849 --> 00:03:44.400 man how every day he goes to the market to try to sell the cow, 33 00:03:45.439 --> 00:03:50.039 this fine creature. The Stranger replied yes, said Jack, a little 34 00:03:50.080 --> 00:03:53.280 silver would go a long way to feed myself and my mother. The Stranger 35 00:03:53.360 --> 00:03:58.150 looked over the cow, whose face was a little too wide and its teeth 36 00:03:58.189 --> 00:04:01.669 a little too dull to day's your lucky day, my boy. I'll take 37 00:04:01.750 --> 00:04:06.430 her off your hands. Jack's eyes grew wide. You mean it, sir? 38 00:04:08.669 --> 00:04:12.819 Yes, of course, my boy, for these five beans, bees, 39 00:04:13.780 --> 00:04:17.060 beans, beans. Okay, you're not on board. Let me try 40 00:04:17.100 --> 00:04:23.220 this again. What if I told you they were magic beans? Jack looked 41 00:04:23.259 --> 00:04:28.170 skeptical. Mister, I'm not an idiot. There's no such thing as magic 42 00:04:28.290 --> 00:04:30.689 beans. All the magic I've ever seen has been because of the MESCAL and 43 00:04:30.689 --> 00:04:34.529 I put in my morning milk. The man stood blinking at the boy, 44 00:04:34.730 --> 00:04:40.040 whose hair was too neat and whose clothes were too messy and his finger nails 45 00:04:40.040 --> 00:04:45.920 too long and his trousers too short. Okay, just stay with me here. 46 00:04:46.560 --> 00:04:50.519 Watch the man tossed one bean on to the ground. The earth began 47 00:04:50.560 --> 00:04:55.910 to shake around them and a bean stalk began to grow at least ten feet 48 00:04:55.910 --> 00:05:00.550 tall. Whoa Jack uttered as he looked back and forth from the bean stalk 49 00:05:00.750 --> 00:05:05.990 to the man with the beans. You've got a deal, MR the man 50 00:05:06.110 --> 00:05:11.019 handed the beans to Jack and took hold of the cow's harness, leading the 51 00:05:11.100 --> 00:05:15.180 animal away. Jack through the beans to the ground and the rumbling started up 52 00:05:15.180 --> 00:05:20.449 again, but this time the bean stalk kept growing and growing, the size 53 00:05:20.529 --> 00:05:26.290 of a tree around, rising all the way up into the clouds. Jack 54 00:05:26.370 --> 00:05:30.209 decided he was going to climb up to see if there were other surprises at 55 00:05:30.250 --> 00:05:36.399 its peak. This wasn't a good idea, but the mascaline. Just as 56 00:05:36.439 --> 00:05:40.439 he neared a break in the clouds, he heard a booming. Boys, 57 00:05:42.000 --> 00:05:48.199 five Foo Fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman. Oh Welsh Jack 58 00:05:48.240 --> 00:05:53.750 sputtered. WHO said that? Boomed the giant that stood before or Jack, 59 00:05:54.310 --> 00:05:59.430 who still hid within the cloud? Just a lowly peasant giant, the son 60 00:05:59.509 --> 00:06:02.189 of a humble farmer. And I'm pretty sure the woman I live with isn't 61 00:06:02.189 --> 00:06:08.339 my real mom. If she's real, I don't know. From day to 62 00:06:08.379 --> 00:06:13.100 day we look literally nothing alike, and I was raised by rumble still skin 63 00:06:13.220 --> 00:06:15.459 in my early years, so I think my real mom didn't want me. 64 00:06:15.980 --> 00:06:20.129 Rumble stillskin took me and then hawked me off on this poor tart who really 65 00:06:20.170 --> 00:06:25.610 longed for a baby, something about her firstborn being snatched, by which I 66 00:06:25.649 --> 00:06:29.889 don't know. I'm Jack, though. The giant stood blinking at Jack, 67 00:06:29.930 --> 00:06:35.040 who had since abandoned his hiding place. Oh Nice to meet you jack. 68 00:06:36.079 --> 00:06:42.480 Where did that bean stock come from? Jack shrugged. Obviously he knew, 69 00:06:42.680 --> 00:06:46.589 but like lying, came really naturally to him. He's kind of like Julian 70 00:06:46.670 --> 00:06:51.350 that way. Regardless, the giant seemed like a friendly enough fellow. He 71 00:06:51.470 --> 00:06:57.149 invited Jack into his sky mansion in the clouds to have a spot of tea, 72 00:06:58.470 --> 00:07:01.660 Welsh tea, not that English crap that he and the giant agree neither 73 00:07:01.779 --> 00:07:06.220 cared for. Is that why you do the bit about smelling the blood of 74 00:07:06.220 --> 00:07:11.540 an Englishman? The giant laughed, a hearty laugh. Yes, it is, 75 00:07:11.740 --> 00:07:15.129 my boy. Have you ever really smelled the blood if an Englishman? 76 00:07:16.250 --> 00:07:21.610 Well, the giant considered this. No, I guess I haven't. How 77 00:07:21.689 --> 00:07:28.889 about a Welshman? Well, the giant considered again. No, I guess 78 00:07:28.970 --> 00:07:35.439 I haven't. How about a giant's blood? Well, no, I guess 79 00:07:35.480 --> 00:07:42.560 I haven't. Jack's eyes flashed. The gentle giant sat there pondering, his 80 00:07:42.720 --> 00:07:47.389 mustache too curly and his beard too straight, his arms too bulging. Considering 81 00:07:47.430 --> 00:07:53.629 it was obvious, he skipped like day. Jack leered and pulled Akbar knife 82 00:07:53.629 --> 00:07:57.509 from his SATCHEL. And began to drive it again and again into the giant's 83 00:07:57.589 --> 00:08:01.379 neck. The giant's eyes grew wide, but before he could even react, 84 00:08:01.459 --> 00:08:07.180 it was clear he was losing an enormous amount of blood. Jack left the 85 00:08:07.220 --> 00:08:11.500 K bar protruding from his throat as he looked around at what he could pocket 86 00:08:11.579 --> 00:08:15.529 before returning to the ground below. He sapped the rest of his tea, 87 00:08:16.290 --> 00:08:20.529 winked at the giant and headed back down the deep bean stalk with his spoils. 88 00:08:20.889 --> 00:08:26.360 This time was even more fun than the well. Jack's feel pastard now. 89 00:08:26.439 --> 00:08:31.000 I mean he really is like remember when I talked about his whole Mom 90 00:08:31.120 --> 00:08:35.559 Dad, rumble stillskin thing? God, I hope so. You were literally 91 00:08:35.679 --> 00:08:39.440 there for it, I mean listening. You weren't like there. Look, 92 00:08:39.519 --> 00:08:50.149 you get it. Thank you, Ariel. That was simply wonderful, as 93 00:08:50.230 --> 00:08:54.710 always. Next up we have for Jordan at the campfire with another example of 94 00:08:54.779 --> 00:09:07.019 proper storytelling. Orville and Agnes love driving at night. They were part of 95 00:09:07.179 --> 00:09:11.690 that generation that would get into their classic car and drive through downtown, taking 96 00:09:11.730 --> 00:09:16.570 in the lights and sound of an autumn night. Often they would end up 97 00:09:16.570 --> 00:09:20.769 driving on the back roads, enjoying the night sky free from the light pollution 98 00:09:20.850 --> 00:09:26.799 of their town. Agnes was a kind and loving woman who was always taking 99 00:09:26.840 --> 00:09:31.360 care of people. She volunteered at the local shelters and food banks. She 100 00:09:31.480 --> 00:09:37.279 made quilts for the homeless, complete with a small patch stating made with love 101 00:09:37.720 --> 00:09:41.870 by Agnes. Weather all, she always had a stack of them in her 102 00:09:41.990 --> 00:09:46.710 car just in case she and Orville happened upon someone who needed a warm blanket. 103 00:09:46.470 --> 00:09:52.220 She was that kind of person. Orville was the perfect match for Agnes. 104 00:09:52.899 --> 00:09:58.740 He too was a kind hearted man. He volunteered with habitat for humanity 105 00:09:58.820 --> 00:10:03.100 and meals on wheels. He loved talking to anyone and everyone and listened intently 106 00:10:03.259 --> 00:10:07.769 to what they had to share. But when they drove together it was just 107 00:10:09.009 --> 00:10:13.370 the two of them, lost in the world of nighttime wonder. One night, 108 00:10:13.929 --> 00:10:18.649 while driving, a heavy fog crept quickly onto the road. Od orval 109 00:10:18.769 --> 00:10:24.799 pulled over and put the roof back on the convertible. Agnes pulled a blanket 110 00:10:24.919 --> 00:10:28.279 from out of the stack and the back seat and wrapped herself up to keep 111 00:10:28.399 --> 00:10:33.600 warm. Orville returned to the car and the car filled with light from an 112 00:10:33.720 --> 00:10:39.029 oncoming truck. Agnes and Orville startled at the truck and the truck honked its 113 00:10:39.110 --> 00:10:43.029 horn as it drove by, scaring the life out of them. They sat 114 00:10:43.110 --> 00:10:48.549 in silence in the car, shot but safe from what could have been a 115 00:10:48.710 --> 00:10:54.179 disaster. Let's go home, agnes whispered to Orville. Yes, let's. 116 00:10:54.700 --> 00:11:00.740 Orville agreed, and so, in the thick fog night, agnes and Orville 117 00:11:00.860 --> 00:11:05.490 headed home with caution, Agnes's hand rested on Orville's leg, and reassurance that 118 00:11:05.570 --> 00:11:11.769 they would get home safely. Then, out of the fog, agnes saw 119 00:11:11.889 --> 00:11:16.370 something or someone standing on the right side of the road. Pull over, 120 00:11:16.490 --> 00:11:22.279 or v Agnes said, pointing to the half shaped figured enveloped in wisp of 121 00:11:22.399 --> 00:11:26.720 fogs. There is someone there. It's not safe to pull over here and 122 00:11:26.840 --> 00:11:31.440 we already had one near death experience tonight. Even as he said the words, 123 00:11:31.480 --> 00:11:35.309 he found himself pulling over to the side of the road. From the 124 00:11:35.429 --> 00:11:41.669 gray white blanket of missed a figure to approach the car. It was a 125 00:11:41.750 --> 00:11:46.870 young woman wearing a black and white houndstooth pattern miniskirt and a soft pin ink 126 00:11:46.909 --> 00:11:50.340 blouse with a white card again. She looked as if she had been crying. 127 00:11:52.059 --> 00:11:56.220 She looked like she was scared. Agnes rolled down the window are you 128 00:11:56.460 --> 00:12:05.049 okay? Do you need help? The young woman answered yes, my car 129 00:12:05.169 --> 00:12:09.450 broke down and and I was heading home, but this fog, she gestured 130 00:12:09.570 --> 00:12:13.809 to the air, came in so fast and and now I am lost. 131 00:12:16.240 --> 00:12:20.200 Where's your home? Orville, inquired from the driver's side of the car. 132 00:12:20.159 --> 00:12:24.480 Four to five elk grove. It's not far from here. The young woman 133 00:12:24.519 --> 00:12:30.070 answered, you're right, it's just up the street. We can take you 134 00:12:30.230 --> 00:12:33.909 there if you'd like. Orvald ask with the care of a father. That 135 00:12:35.029 --> 00:12:39.389 would be wonderful. If it isn't any trouble. The Young Woman's tired face 136 00:12:39.509 --> 00:12:43.340 lightened up with a wearied smile. It would be more trouble to US leaving 137 00:12:43.419 --> 00:12:48.620 you here. I wouldn't be able to sleep knowing you were out here lost. 138 00:12:48.059 --> 00:12:54.100 Agnes replied. Get in, we'll take you home, and the young 139 00:12:54.220 --> 00:12:58.730 woman approached the car. She was very thin and the night air made her 140 00:12:58.809 --> 00:13:03.049 look ghostly. She opened the door and got into the back seat. Grab 141 00:13:03.129 --> 00:13:07.970 a quilt and get yourself warm, Agnes said sweetly. My name is agnes 142 00:13:09.250 --> 00:13:13.480 and this is Orville. Make yourself comfortable. We aren't too far from your 143 00:13:13.600 --> 00:13:16.919 home. In fact, we live near Your House, so this is just 144 00:13:18.080 --> 00:13:22.559 serendipitous that we found you. or fill chuckled kindly. Thank you, thank 145 00:13:22.600 --> 00:13:28.870 you so much, the girl said quietly, with exhausted relief. It's so 146 00:13:28.110 --> 00:13:33.669 very kind of you. They drove off into the fog with a peaceful silence. 147 00:13:35.230 --> 00:13:39.830 The radio played dream, a little dream Sung by Mama cast the fog 148 00:13:39.950 --> 00:13:45.980 gave the drive and otherworldly feel, just the three of them venturing forward listening 149 00:13:46.179 --> 00:13:50.179 to music. What has you on the road so late at night? Or 150 00:13:50.299 --> 00:13:58.009 the last making conversation, not meaning to pry out with some friends? It 151 00:13:58.129 --> 00:14:01.730 isn't normally an issue, but this truck came barely down the road and approached 152 00:14:01.769 --> 00:14:05.250 me so quickly. I pulled over, scared and well, the car got 153 00:14:05.330 --> 00:14:09.200 stuck in a ditch. I started to walk home. I figured I wasn't 154 00:14:09.360 --> 00:14:13.919 so far from home, but the fog got thicker and thicker and well, 155 00:14:15.480 --> 00:14:18.600 I got turned around. I prayed that someone would find me, and that's 156 00:14:18.639 --> 00:14:24.629 when you two showed up. Thank God. The young woman spoke with gentle 157 00:14:24.750 --> 00:14:30.029 relief. My parents are going to kill me, she laughed. Oh they 158 00:14:30.110 --> 00:14:33.470 won't kill you, Agnes smiled. They will be relieved that you made it 159 00:14:33.629 --> 00:14:39.259 home safely. If we had children we would be worried about this fog and 160 00:14:39.379 --> 00:14:43.940 our child getting home. You've already survived the first part. Now we are 161 00:14:43.059 --> 00:14:48.019 taking care of the second part. Or will cheerfully tapped his hands on the 162 00:14:48.100 --> 00:14:52.340 staring wheel. We had the same issue with that same truck. We pulled 163 00:14:52.379 --> 00:14:54.570 over to to put the roof on the car and it came screaming out of 164 00:14:54.690 --> 00:15:00.730 nowhere. It's lucky we are alive, but I guess that truck was meant 165 00:15:00.769 --> 00:15:05.610 to bring us together. Agnes spoke with a gentle motherly tone. The fog 166 00:15:05.769 --> 00:15:09.399 slowly began to thin as they approached the suburb. A couple of turns and 167 00:15:09.639 --> 00:15:13.759 they soon were at the young woman's home. My House is the last house 168 00:15:13.840 --> 00:15:20.039 on the right, the young woman directed. The fog had lifted, revealing 169 00:15:20.080 --> 00:15:24.750 a clear night sky. The young woman got out of the car wrapped in 170 00:15:24.870 --> 00:15:28.950 one of Agnes's quilts. Oh, here's your quilte back, the young woman 171 00:15:30.029 --> 00:15:33.710 spoke, realizing she was still wrapped in it. Keep it, my dear, 172 00:15:35.070 --> 00:15:37.899 I have plenty. Agnes laugh. Plus, it will remind you of 173 00:15:39.019 --> 00:15:43.139 this evening. I don't think I will ever forget this evening. The young 174 00:15:43.259 --> 00:15:50.129 woman laughed and laughed a relief. Thank you. Thank you again. Agnes 175 00:15:50.250 --> 00:15:54.889 and Orville waited to see that the young woman got into her house safely and 176 00:15:54.169 --> 00:15:58.730 once she was in and had waved to them, the two drove home. 177 00:16:00.529 --> 00:16:07.200 The next morning the young woman awoke and immediately wanted to do something to thank 178 00:16:07.320 --> 00:16:11.879 the couple that gave her a ride home. She found Agnes's last name him 179 00:16:11.919 --> 00:16:15.399 on the patch of the quilt and would find out where they lived. They 180 00:16:15.440 --> 00:16:18.350 said they live nearby, so maybe she could drive there after she and her 181 00:16:18.389 --> 00:16:23.629 dad went to get her car. Noticing that she hadn't changed her clothes before 182 00:16:23.669 --> 00:16:30.190 falling asleep, the young woman wrapped Agnes's quilt around her and headed downstairs. 183 00:16:30.950 --> 00:16:34.700 She stopped midway when she heard crying from the living room. She moved slowly 184 00:16:34.740 --> 00:16:41.340 downstairs and saw her mother and father sitting with a police officer. I'm sorry 185 00:16:41.460 --> 00:16:45.460 to tell you this. The officer spoke in a soft, regretful manner, 186 00:16:47.409 --> 00:16:51.210 but your daughter was found on the side of the road last night. She 187 00:16:51.370 --> 00:16:55.289 was hit by the same truck that killed an elderly couple who were putting a 188 00:16:55.370 --> 00:17:00.009 roof bag on their convertible. Apparently the truck driver was unaware that he had 189 00:17:00.009 --> 00:17:04.200 killed three people. He was drunk and the fog was thick. We haven't 190 00:17:04.319 --> 00:17:11.200 in custody now the young woman froze and, disbelieve it, she wanted so 191 00:17:11.279 --> 00:17:15.559 much to stay and to listen to what was happening, but she stopped at 192 00:17:15.599 --> 00:17:19.109 the front door when she heard Dream, a little dream sin by MAMA CASS 193 00:17:19.430 --> 00:17:26.069 coming from the front yard. She stepped outside and saw Agnes and Orville standing 194 00:17:26.190 --> 00:17:32.099 next to the car just in front of her house. So I guess you 195 00:17:32.259 --> 00:17:37.380 know. We just found out ourselves. Agnes spoke to the young woman with 196 00:17:37.500 --> 00:17:44.650 the hint of sadness. What do we do now, the young woman asked, 197 00:17:44.690 --> 00:17:48.089 as she approached the car. There was a long silence between the three 198 00:17:48.170 --> 00:17:55.410 of them. I guess we drive. Orville laughed, a hollow laugh. 199 00:17:56.809 --> 00:18:02.799 I guess we drive. The Young Woman concurred, and with that the young 200 00:18:02.880 --> 00:18:07.519 woman got into the car and the three of them drove off into the first 201 00:18:07.519 --> 00:18:18.910 light of morning. I I get Keith. The Chad said I'd be on 202 00:18:19.029 --> 00:18:26.829 the list today. Napod Pomo thing he did with the poetry is throats a 203 00:18:26.869 --> 00:18:32.460 little little messy now. He asked me to come down and read some poetry. 204 00:18:33.019 --> 00:18:40.460 told me that whistles, ask for Lloyd or Dana or whober even I 205 00:18:40.500 --> 00:18:44.130 get somebody would point me. Welcome. The Piano is over there, the 206 00:18:44.250 --> 00:18:49.490 piano I got. You expect me play piano to you guys. Made me 207 00:18:49.609 --> 00:18:52.809 do some some editing work. I don't do that, but you'll figure out, 208 00:18:52.849 --> 00:18:59.599 I'm sure. But just hit record and Ankie, I got your man. 209 00:19:00.240 --> 00:19:02.160 If you don't mind, turn the other way. I did. I 210 00:19:02.240 --> 00:19:04.559 have trouble of people look at me when I do the poetry stuff of it. 211 00:19:06.400 --> 00:19:14.549 Is that better? Thanks. A man walks down the street. He 212 00:19:14.829 --> 00:19:21.470 says, why am I soft in the middle now? Why am I soft 213 00:19:21.589 --> 00:19:26.940 in the Middle? The rest of my life is so hard? I need 214 00:19:26.980 --> 00:19:34.259 a photo opportunity. I want a shot at redemption. Don't want to end 215 00:19:34.299 --> 00:19:45.650 up a cartoon in a cartoon graveyard, bone digger, bone digger dogs in 216 00:19:45.730 --> 00:19:52.730 the moonlight, far away in my well lit door. Mister, beer belly, 217 00:19:52.359 --> 00:19:57.799 beer belly, get these muts away from me. You know I don't 218 00:19:57.799 --> 00:20:07.309 find the stuff amusing anymore. But if you'll be my bodyguard, I can 219 00:20:07.349 --> 00:20:14.990 be your long lost pal. I can call you betty, and Betty will 220 00:20:15.029 --> 00:20:21.660 you call me? You can call me AL, a man walks down the 221 00:20:21.740 --> 00:20:27.779 street. He says, why am I short of attention? got a short 222 00:20:27.819 --> 00:20:37.809 little span of attention and whoe my nights are so long. Where's my wife 223 00:20:38.450 --> 00:20:47.450 and family? What if I die here? Who will be my role model 224 00:20:48.490 --> 00:20:56.000 now that my role model is gone, gone? He ducked back down the 225 00:20:56.079 --> 00:21:03.670 alley with some Rollie polly little bat faced girl. All along, all along, 226 00:21:04.829 --> 00:21:12.150 there were incidants and accidents. There are hints and allegations. But if 227 00:21:12.190 --> 00:21:19.140 you'll be my bodyguard, I can be your long lost pal. I can 228 00:21:19.299 --> 00:21:26.180 call you betty, and Betty, when you call me, you can call 229 00:21:26.299 --> 00:21:36.730 me how call me. Yeah, I just saw. I just understand how 230 00:21:36.809 --> 00:21:41.170 this can happened. There are many mysteries in this world that we will never 231 00:21:41.210 --> 00:21:45.210 understand. Yeah, I just wish I could go back and see what, 232 00:21:45.690 --> 00:21:49.880 see what happened. You mustn't look back, you can only look forward. 233 00:21:51.240 --> 00:21:53.880 Yeah, but I think this is a sign that you must move the narrative 234 00:21:55.039 --> 00:22:02.309 forward and continue the legacy your parents established. Yeah, but I'm a I'm 235 00:22:02.430 --> 00:22:06.509 not a I'm not special like like they were. I'm at just a guy 236 00:22:06.589 --> 00:22:11.269 that you were, the one that will continue to lead us. This is 237 00:22:11.430 --> 00:22:17.460 your worst to move to the next level.

Yeah, but I really would like to go back and Dina. 247 00:23:00.630 --> 00:23:07.309 The Path is set. You need to promise that you will not look back. 248 00:23:07.509 --> 00:23:14.220 All that is behind us is pain and death. Remember, we are 249 00:23:14.380 --> 00:23:19.819 here because I have protected you. I brought you light in the void. 250 00:23:21.500 --> 00:23:25.579 Yeah, you did, but I like, I like that. It's a 251 00:23:26.180 --> 00:23:30.130 it's a nice now, but still, if we could just know, get 252 00:23:30.170 --> 00:23:37.089 that thought out of your your head and push further into the light. I 253 00:23:37.289 --> 00:23:42.960 need you focused. I need you, now more than ever, to trust 254 00:23:44.160 --> 00:23:49.880 me when I say that the past holds only the pain that we have escaped. 255 00:23:51.720 --> 00:23:56.950 But you need to return now to the others and keep everything running smoothly, 256 00:23:56.990 --> 00:24:03.430 as you have yeah, but I can't, I can't go back right 257 00:24:03.470 --> 00:24:07.789 now.

My priority is to get you back 262 00:24:30.049 --> 00:24:34.009 to the others and get this mess cleaned up. Yeah, and yeah, 263 00:24:34.009 --> 00:24:38.960 and I need and make sure you get your business cards.
