“Part of me wants justice for this. Part of me wants to never cause harm to another.”
Ken Scholes, Lamentation

“Watch for the ones who leave your mouth hanging open. Study them, find out what they love and what they fear. Dig the treasure out of their soul and hold it to the light.' He leaned in even closer now, so that Neb could smell the wine on his breath. 'Then Be like them.”
