Point of view—experiment 3

"Babylon Revisited" as narrated by Marion: "Oh my lord. What's he doing here? He's ruined so many lives, the bastard. Once a drunk, always a drunk. He thinks he can waltz in here and take Honoria away from us? He has no idea how to be a decent father...I've see his kind of "caring." He would endanger Honoria's life, like he did my sister's. For her sake, I can't let Charles take her daughter.

Result: we would miss the story's complexity—Marion's manipulative qualities, Honoria's revealing lunch with her father, and the possibility that Charles is worthy of reclaiming his honor and life.
