Justin was an extra in his own life. He concluded this himself, after long and careful consideration. Each action was merely reaction. Every line he spoke was a brief reply. If something really interesting was happening, he would make an appearance then quickly retreat, leaving the stage to the principal players. He did not dwell on the meaning of his life, or what death might bring, but sometimes wondered if his name would appear in the end credits of his life story.
