Iago’s secret blog #7

That’s it now; I’ve rubbed Roderigo so raw he’s almost to the bone. He’s angry. He is so angry. Whether he kills Cassio or Cassio kills him, or they both kill one another, makes no odds to me. I don’t care. Any which way, I gain.

But really, they must both die. If Roderigo lives, he’ll want back all the jewellery that I took for him, pretending that they were gifts for Desdemona. If Cassio survives, he’ll be a daily beauty which makes me ugly, and he and Othello may figure out my deception.

No, either way honest Iago will ensure they’re both dead.

Be it so.
