I also believe it was a leverage thing. Pippin has nothing holding him to the Mallers, who could turn his back easily. Where as with Kalani, Scratch has his daughter, which is huge leverage to get someone to do almost anything you want.
Course that raises the question of why allow Pippin to go the Tower later on. I can't imagine what sort of leverage Scratch would have on Pippin to make him go along with it. Unless there are some cellphone snaps of Pippin we don't know about yet.......
Hannah an anchor also implied manipulation to me.
Let me save you the next step where you say I'm caring too much about what you think or reading too much into it or whatever. I already know you are a grumpy puss who has a thorn in his paw.
No. No you didn't. Trust and leverage are two completely different concepts. You may consider that your words implied a lack of leverage over Pippin, but they did not. They only imply leverage over Kalani. This isn't tomato/tomato at all. It's apples and oranges. Stop arguing what I say as being me having misunderstood you and start being more careful with the way you string words together. If this is really a big issue for you, which it seems to be.tomato tomahto. That's what I meant. She didn't think he'd keep his end of the bargain because he was too eager to get out there and gone and had no reason to complete the task
And if you pay any attention at all to the way I responded, you will note that I answered your question about Pippin. Stop looking for shit that isn't there.
You seem to have a problem with the way I write. Maybe I am a martian shouting gibberish, maybe not, maybe you should ignore me and I'll do the same for you.
