“But he’s still ‘Thorn’,” replied [name removed to simplify].
“Right. I meant throne there.”

“And then the wars were brought up. The wars that are still going on now. The past is the present. At least in the Thorn Room.”

“That are coming up more frequently.”
“1/2 and 1/2,” joked [delete name], to no laughter. Okay: 1/2 and 1/2 again. Baker chuckled a little bit.
