91% done with Kim

It didn’t really occur to me how much Kim needed the Lama – beyond just the school – because playing the great game is so dangerous that listening to the old man’s wisdom might keep Kim out of trouble, both in this life and the next.

Still, I wonder how much of what the Lama has demonstrated to Kim will sink in … I’m thinking that the old man will have to die before any major impression can be made on the boy 🙁
