From Douglas Sharper in Douglas Sharper’s Teledahn:
I don’t.
To Douglas Sharper:
The last time we argued?
To Douglas Sharper:
It was about Phil
From Douglas Sharper in Douglas Sharper’s Teledahn:
Sorry V. YOu’ll have to refresh my memory. I’ve moved on
From Douglas Sharper in Douglas Sharper’s Teledahn:
Phil is ancient history.
To Douglas Sharper:
Now everyone thinks I’m a hothead because I faced off with you. You did not recieve my email?
To Douglas Sharper:
Four years ago is far from ancient
From Douglas Sharper in Douglas Sharper’s Teledahn:
In my book it is.
To Douglas Sharper:
This has more to do with my inability to understand after all you did that they would just allow you to come back.
To Douglas Sharper:
I would like to hope you’ve changed
From Douglas Sharper in Douglas Sharper’s Teledahn:
Send me an ivite to where you are. Let’s hash this out like men.
To Douglas Sharper:
But that does not mean anyone should forgive you just like that
To Douglas Sharper:
I’ll send you an invite to Negilahn
From Douglas Sharper in Douglas Sharper’s Teledahn:
See you there.
To Douglas Sharper:
I’m here…..
Vormaen:
Hello Sharper
Douglas Sharper:
The face rings a bell.
Vormaen:
Yeah……it was in your Great Tree hood
Vormaen:
You and I got into a heated discussion about Phil
Vormaen:
But this isn’t about Phil
Vormaen:
It’s about you
Douglas Sharper:
What is it about?
Vormaen:
OK….
Vormaen:
Things that transpired back in 03
Vormaen:
I believe every man can make up for their mistakes, but people tell me I should just forgive and forget
Vormaen:
But nothing has been cleared up.
Douglas Sharper:
You’re going to have to stop beating around the bush here boy.
Vormaen:
So I want to know the truth about a few things.
Vormaen:
One……why did you take Phil’s book…….
Vormaen:
Accident?
Douglas Sharper:
What does it matter?
Vormaen:
Because, Phil was a good man, even if he was a little off. You may have caused his predicament.
Vormaen:
I just want to know your motives.
Douglas Sharper:
My intentions were never to harm Phil.
Vormaen:
Good.
Vormaen:
Ok…..big one
Vormaen:
I know you don’t like the fact we have read your journals
Vormaen:
And I suspect you may be many things, but not a liar.
Vormaen:
The books you had Nick “hide”, were they returned?
Douglas Sharper:
I”m not sure where you’re going with all of this?
Douglas Sharper:
What are you after?
Douglas Sharper:
Why do I need to sit here and explain my life to you of all people?
Douglas Sharper:
We going to go through my whole life here?
Vormaen:
The truth. I want to believe you’re a changed man……but somehow it’s hard for me to grasp
Vormaen:
It’s no secret I’m the loudest opposition to you being back here
Douglas Sharper:
I haven’t.
Vormaen:
Just check the DRC forums
Douglas Sharper:
Regardless what does it matter what I tell you?
Douglas Sharper:
The proof is in the pudding.
Douglas Sharper:
You’ll have to judge for youself.
Vormaen:
Why are you being so defensive?
Douglas Sharper:
Ha!
Douglas Sharper:
I don’t like being questioned as you are.
Vormaen:
Just like before, laughing at my inquiries.
Vormaen:
Hey, it would make things more comfortable for all of us if you let us know what you intentions are.
Douglas Sharper:
My intentions are to help this effort. The problem isn’t me letting you know, it’s you believing me.
Vormaen:
You did some mighty destructive things back then
Douglas Sharper:
I don’t need this.
Vormaen:
I want to, trust me.
Vormaen:
Sharper, I’m not trying to prove you wrong.
Douglas Sharper:
Look it’s a new page.
Vormaen:
If people can see me convinced, maybe it will make it easier.
Douglas Sharper:
You’re going to have to watch and judge for yourself.
Douglas Sharper:
I’m not going to be blackmailed into thinking that I have to convince you to convince everyone else.
Douglas Sharper:
There are plenty of people who trust me.
Vormaen:
So can you tell me if you informed the DRC of the translations you took?
Douglas Sharper:
Ha!
Douglas Sharper:
Are you their lawyer?
Vormaen:
Sharper, even members of the Great Tree said they did not fully trust you.
Vormaen:
No, I am just a concerned explorer
Douglas Sharper:
Well, that is their decision.
Douglas Sharper:
I can’t worry about all of them.
Vormaen:
We’ve been this route before, would it hurt you to be more open with us?
Douglas Sharper:
I’ll be open when I need to be.
Douglas Sharper:
What is it you want to know that I”m not being open about?
Vormaen:
Well……
Vormaen:
I hope that you won’t try to cause a war again, which is on a lot of folks minds.
Douglas Sharper:
Besides little nuggets from the past.
Douglas Sharper:
I’m not here to start a war.
Vormaen:
The translations! They obviously were of great importance for you to hide them from the DRC
Vormaen:
ok.
Vormaen:
That was my main concern
Vormaen:
The past always directly ties to the future.
Vormaen:
So are you not going to comment on those translations?
Douglas Sharper:
V my problem is this.
Douglas Sharper:
You come in here acting as though you understood all that happened during those days - why translations were hidden.
Douglas Sharper:
You don’t and I’m not about to explain them all to you now.
Vormaen:
ok.
Douglas Sharper:
But I had good reason.
Vormaen:
ok.
Douglas Sharper:
Many of which you are not aware.
Vormaen:
ok.
Douglas Sharper:
Talking to Kodama once in a while or reading my journal tells you nothing of the story
Vormaen:
Can you say if you were worried about power going to the wrong hands?
Douglas Sharper:
Yes.
Vormaen:
OK, that clears up a lot.
Vormaen:
Are you still worried about it?
Douglas Sharper:
No.
Vormaen:
Good. That pretty much answers that.
Douglas Sharper:
Are you satisfied?
Vormaen:
Yes, for now.
Vormaen:
While I have you here.
Vormaen:
Have you been outside these pods yet?
Douglas Sharper:
Yes.
Vormaen:
Have you seen that?
Vormaen points
Vormaen:
Something blinking out there
Vormaen:
Anything to do with the wildlife decline?
Douglas Sharper:
Not sure what you are referring to.
Vormaen:
Under the second farthest trees, right hand side
Vormaen:
under the bush next to it.
Vormaen:
See it?
Vormaen:
A faint blinking.
Vormaen:
red I think.
Vormaen:
Thought you might want to investigate it.
Douglas Sharper:
I don’t think I’m hunting a red light.
Douglas Sharper:
I’ll tell you that.
Vormaen:
I know……but not sure what it is.
Vormaen:
ok.
Douglas Sharper:
Alright.
Douglas Sharper:
I need to be moving along.
Douglas Sharper:
We done here?
Vormaen:
Ok.
Vormaen:
Yes……..
Douglas Sharper:
Very well.
Vormaen:
Shorah Sharper
Douglas Sharper:
Look forward to having you on board.
Vormaen:
Will be there.
Douglas Sharper:
If not now, eventually.
Vormaen:
Will think it over.
