Welcome to The Chosen's journals. Each character is invited to keep a

You know who I just don't get? Malif.
So we found this pouch that proves that his friend is innocent, or at least is good evidence that she's innocent. The obvious thing to do is take it to the magistrate. But Malif didn't think this was a good idea.
He thought that the fact that they arrested Alana showed that they are corrupt, and that if we just give them back the satchel that they will accuse us of thievery and murder, and we'll all get thrown in jail.

I mean, the guy is paranoid, but it's good to think about how things might go wrong so that we can avoid problems.
