Allister seemed to like this haze of mystery that floated around people's perception of him. Because of this, Allister purposely left conversations open-ended. He purposely stopped short of stating official opinions. He would argue one side, leave the conversation to read a book on the other side, and come back and argue for the other side. This should, of course, not be mistaken as a wishy-washy-ness. Or maybe it should. Even to this, he left the opinion open.
All we have to prove what Allister hoped and believed are the actions that he most certainly orchestrated. It was not beyond Allister to sob at the simple action of someone peeling an orange until the person peeling the orange assumed Allister was a most sensitive soul who could feel the pain of the orange. In the same sense, it was not beyond Allister to grab an orange and sink his teeth most voraciously into it without first removing the peel.
One could assume Allister was bipolar and also one could assume he was doing this on purpose-which made him a case for other forms of mental illness. This left one to assume that this confusion is exactly what Allister wanted. But, again, who could really say for sure?
To the story of his whispering to trees, I know only this. Allister whispered just one sentence-a simple request that they remember him. To this, the trees only shook their branches and occasionally dropped a leaf, leaving Allister to assume whether or not they would oblige.
