I do not know how, but I completely missed this on my first read. Does this mark him as one who is sympathetic to the cause? Or (because, that man, who is obviously intelligent must have perceived Ben’s was oblivious to the political climate and the demonstration that took place), does this mark the occupant as one who is deserving of a favor for his aid and (supposed) act of discretion?
I don’t think we really have any idea at this point. Ben doesn’t know and we don’t know. I have guesses, but nothing definite.
Or maybe not so much a ‘mail the thank you car here’ sticker, as ‘this place is safe to crash in’ or ‘this place has been used, watch out’?
My guess is definitely a territory marker. I’m guessing we haven’t heard the last of the Cook family, and that Ben’s passive nature will be trespassed once again.
‘I was not the weird person in that situation.’ Perhaps not my favorate line, but very high ranking.
I’d guess the mark says “Don’t reclaim”, given what we know of Reclamation. Of course Ben doesn’t know that much. . .
