"So, anyone who votes for you is suspicious, Geeklet? I believe that right now any of us could be guilty or innocent. None of us has any way of knowing who the culprit could be. I chose someone at random, and I truly am sorry if you are innocent. If I could simply walk away from this I would, believe me. I have no desire for another innocent person to die," she says, sounding tired even to her own ears.
Ordinarily, a random vote would not be suspicious. But the timing of it, with so many others having voted, and it being the first vote to actually put one person in the majority (however small it may be) with so little votes left does strike me as suspicious, yes.
"You're right. I didn't HAVE to break the tie. But when once party suddenly gets extremely defensive at a simple request from another, you can bet that looks very suspicious. That's all it takes to cast a shadow of doubt upon them." Persephone firmly stated.
Except I never was defensive. Right now we all have so very little to go on, and you asked me to do something I am unsure how to do. When I stated that fact, and asked how you thought I had done anything as to where I needed to prove
that I was innocent, I received no response to my question. The fact that you will not tell me nor anyone else why you initially thought that there was ever any doubt as to my allegiance, that is what begins to raise my ire. I can surmise that one of two outcomes is more than probable. One, you don't know, and are simply joining a bandwagon. Two, you are the one responsible, and now that this town has begun investigating the incident, you are trying to determine if I am a threat or not.
Perhaps I am simply overthinking things on that last particular point. I've been known to do that on occasion. If that is the case and you are indeed innocent, then I do apologize. But you must realize that everyone is a little on edge upon finding out that there is a murderer among us.
