Oh, no, I saw the paragraph before it. I just felt like even with the paragraph I wasn’t sure if it was talking about the gods’ motives or my character’s. It’s just an ambiguous sentence, I think.
Also, if you want to italicize a word, have the brackets with the i before it [i ] and then brackets with a slash after it [/i ]. (I had to put a space in the brackets because otherwise it italicized the sentence.)
