Allow me to tell you about my favorite storyteller. He is a big nerd.
Wilford tries so hard to keep Dark's influence away from his babies but even with his reality bending, he isn't all-seeing like Host. He'll catch Dark's arm around Bim's shoulder, mouth close to his ear with insidious whispers and promises. He'll spy Dark conversing enigmatically with the Jims, their eyes a little wide and maybe mouths agape at the wonders he promises. And Wilford warns them, oh how he warns them about Dark's honeyed poison but still he fears one day he might see too late.
