    Laurell K. Hamilton
    “You can not die of grief, though it feels as if you can. A heart does not actually break, though sometimes your chest aches as if it is breaking. Grief dims with time. It is the way of things. There comes a day when you smile again, and you feel like a traitor. How dare I feel happy. How dare I be glad in a world where my father is no more. And then you cry fresh tears, because you do not miss him as much as you once did, and giving up your grief is another kind of death.”
    Laurell K. Hamilton

    Laurell K. Hamilton

    Laurell K. Hamilton, Narcissus in Chains

    Laurell K. Hamilton
    “I did not run to him, but I did wrap my arms around him, press my ear to his chest, hold on to him as if he were the last solid thing in the world. He stroked my hair and murmured to me in French. I understood enough to know he was glad to see me and that he thought I looked beautiful. But beyond that it was just pretty noise.
    It wasn't until I felt Zerbrowski behind me that I pulled away, but when Jean-Claude's hand found mine, I welcomed it.
    Zerbrowski was looking at me as if he'd never seen me before. "What?" It came out hostile.
    "I've never seen you be that ... soft with anyone before."
    It startled me. "You've seen me kiss Richard before."
    He nodded. "That was lust. This is ..." He shook his head, glancing up at Jean-Claude, then back to me. "He makes you feel safe.”
    Laurell K. Hamilton, Narcissus in Chains
