Sherwood Smith
“Why is it the songs all end with the good people winning, but in life they don't?"

Sherwood Smith, Crown Duel

“A wager?" I repeated.
"Yes," he said, and gave me a slow smile, bright with challenge. ...
"Stake?" I asked cautiously. He was still smiling, an odd sort of smile, hard to define.
"A kiss." My first reaction was outrage, but then I remembered that I was on my way to Court, and that had to be the kind of thing they did at Court. And if I win I don't have to collect. I hesitated only a moment longer, lured by the thought of open sky, and speed, and winning.
"Done," I said.”
Sherwood Smith, Crown Duel

Sherwood Smith
“Because you showed one face to all the rest of the world, and another to me.”
Sherwood Smith, Crown Duel

Sherwood Smith

Sherwood Smith
“Except. What is normal at any given time? We change just as the seasons change, and each spring brings new growth. So nothing is ever quite the same.”
Sherwood Smith, Crown Duel
