Thomas says they took him to get to me, Stephie because she was with him, and Scarlett because she found them. Apparently they knew I would come for him, but by the time I did, no one of rank or importance was there to action whatever plot they had for me. Which is fortuitous, but worrying. Because when they took Thomas, they did not expect to get so lucky. Apparently they tried to burn him for heresy, but as we all know, his particular situation means that his body can withstand being burned, even if it causes pain. He can, basically, keep on burning forever. Or until he disappeared. And they managed to film this very phenomenon and send it to the Vatican.
They now, once again, believe me to be the Antichrist, and apparently Thomas is my lover or handmaiden, or whatever in the fuck. They went after my family, so they know they can't die. ...most of them. And they have gone after Thomas.
We need to be careful. Again. What joy.
Thomas says they repeated the performance for an Archbishop. He didn't catch the name, he just saw the robes. And after that, they left him burning until Samson and Svetlana got him down. And that was nearly a day and a half.
