>The Borginnis took the idiot to his pallet under a wagonsheet and stripped him to his new underwear and she tucked him into his blanket and kissed him goodnight and the camp grew quiet. When the idiot crossed that blue and smoky amphitheater he was naked once again, shambling past the fires like a balden groundsloth. Then he was standing alone on the shore. He hooted softly and his voice passed from him like a gift that was also needed so that no sound of it echoed back. he entered the water. Before the river reached much past his waist he'd lost his footing and sunk from sight.
>Now the judge on his midnight rounds was passing along at just this place stark naked himself - such encounters being commoner than men suppose or who would survive any crossing by night - and he stepped into the river and seized up the drowning idiot, snatching it aloft by the heels like a great midwife and slapping it on the back to let the water out. A birth scene or a baptism or some ritual not yet inaugurated into any canon. He twisted the water from its hair and he gathered the naked and sobbing fool into his arms and carried it up into the camp and restored it among its fellows.

What did he mean by this?

>implying cormac's pacing isn't god tier

i bet you're bothered with dialogue not being segmented with quotation marks too.

>>7633457
I'm not really sure how you can't appreciate nearly everything about the language here.

This was the moment when the Judge and the idiot became entangled for another word. If the Judge really was Satan like I assume he was, he's basically now baptized someone for the first time and that's why the idiot just becomes his from this point on
