The Confession of D.G.Y.
Don't think for a moment that I am admitting to anything, is that clear? I never so much as DREAMED of doing anything in that grotesque indictment...I hope that this statement--statement, NOT 'confession'-- will clear up this entire matter so I can get back home.

Finally, they reached a rectangular outline of light at the tunnel’s end. By the mercy of fate, the pair had not stumbled into any booby-traps, nor run into any dead ends branching off from the main passage. While dark, the journey was not as perilous as Itaweret had feared… Hopefully, it would stay that way. “How do you know this doesn’t lead to a trap?” Bek asked. “Think about it. Why would Mut lead us into a trap? Don’t you trust her enough, brother?” “Assuming that was Mut speaking to us. What if it was that Achaean demon she talked about, that Athena?” Itaweret fought hard within herself to ignore him, and the possibility he raised. It was a valid point, if she
