“But I keep my mouth shut, because that’s what friends do. We don’t point out each other’s faults unless asked.”
Samantha Downing, My Lovely Wife

“My name is not Tobias. I use that name only when I want someone to remember me. In this case, the bartender. I introduced myself and typed out my name when I first walked in and ordered a drink. He will remember me. He will remember that Tobias is the deaf man who left the bar with a woman he just met. The name was for his benefit, not Petra’s. She will remember me anyway, because how many deaf guys could she have slept with?”
Samantha Downing, My Lovely Wife

“My feelings about this are conflicted. I want my kids to feel safe. I also want them to know how dangerous the world is.”
Samantha Downing, My Lovely Wife
