"How can I explain?" Marina looked up at the sky. "Do you remember what it was like your first day as a police officer? You had trouble sleeping the night before because you were so excited. Putting on that uniform was like dressing in ceremonial robes. You felt important, part of something bigger than yourself. You were ready to make a difference. You wanted to be the best cop ever because it mattered."
"I remember," Aaron said. Those days seemed like part of a previous life.
"I have that feeling every day, all the time." She spread her arms wide. "What we do matters to millions of people, even though they don't know it. Sometimes the assignments are difficult and even painful, but they are always worth it. Can you imagine what that is like?"
Her enthusiasm made his own life seem completely empty and pointless. It was an ugly emotion that he couldn't shake off.
"So," he said, "you're like secret police with some kind of connection to God."
She remained silent.
"I'm sorry." She grimaced. "Me and my big mouth. You'd think I'd learn after all these years. Now we both have a problem because you know too much. I really do apologize."
"Why? Because you'll have to kill me if I don't join your organization?"
