You can't die. It's because of you that I told the truth about what I did. We are tied.
You saved my life in two ways. Let me save yours.” “I don't want no saving,” Albert
said. “If you die, the lie lives.” Albert sat and put his head in his hands. “Don't you
see?” Tommy asked. “That lie turned you into a bushman monster for all these
