“Funny you should ask that young lord.”
“I am not a lord, how many times do i have to say it?”
Mardy whispered in Kira’s ear, “He is a few knives

After a few minutes of shouting, Perceval drew his

their moorings. Within seconds they were almost miles away, as she dove into the near frozen lake. When she emerged she held the unsinged Kira to her chest and warmed him with her busom.

salesman trying to explain how her breathe couldn’t
burn Kira because hate made the fire.
“Then why aren’t you burned?”
