-Valerie”
Sarah Blakley-Cartwright, Red Riding Hood

“I am going to save your daughter. And then I intend to marry her. I would like your blessing in this, but I can live without it.”
Sarah Blakley-Cartwright, Red Riding Hood

“His leaving had been like snipping off the end of a rope - leaving two unraveling strands.”
