Alex is much older than Enrico. In fact, he’s close to Walter’s age. Enrico, therefore, is not a reliable narrator.
Enrico: There was a small playground outside the church where the meeting was to take place. My mother told me to play nicely there while the adults talked; hopefully there’d be other kids to play with.
But until Integra showed up, there was nobody else there but me…
…and of course my best friend, Alexander Anderson.
Enrico (past): Alex, quit messing with the shovels and come help with my sand castle.
