Hi! I have a question.
I'm editing ch 20 at the moment, and stumble on an odd sentence. It's near the end of the chapter.
".....Come towards us, if you dare. We are [cut by an illustration] ok at us straight in the face. We laugh at you..."

I don't feel this sentence make sense "We are ok at us straight in the face."

I'm guessing it should be "We are men. Look at us straight in the face." But of course, it's just a random guess.

What should I do? Do you have any suggestion?

You’re certainly right about “Look at us straight in the face”. As for the first part, it could be men or it could be ‘here’, which would make more sense to me. I don’t really have any advice, so treat it as you think fit :hmm:
