Bonds

Sydney

--

"I want Sydney to be in charge of Jarod."

"I want to be in charge of Jarod."

"Raines this is not an argument. I think with Sydney as Jarod's mentor he will think of him as a father figure. I know how sometimes your temper can be. Sydney will be better with Jarod than you will. If Jarod would ever run away when he grows up then we will be able to catch him because of Sydney's bond with him. He will think of him as a father figure"

"You are definitely looking forward to the future."

"I have to be running since I'm the Centre."

Miss Parker

--

"Are you sure your wife will care if her daughter is put into an experiment?"

"I will tell her that Jarod needs someone to talk to. Have someone her age to talk to and Jarod needs someone his age to talk to."

"Will she buy it?"

"I think she will. She talks to Jarod and knows that he's lonely. This will be another way to keep Jarod in the Centre. With a bond with Sydney and my daughter he'll not want to go anywhere"

"And if he knows that we'll using his simulations for the opposite of what they were made for."

"We will have Sydney and my daughter on the team to capture him. That way he'll come back because of them."

"You can hope he will."

"He will."

"I hope so. If not then we'll be in trouble with the tower."
