“Not a wonder you are out camping with us princess,” Rizz said dryly.
Falita gave a clearing snort of her opposite nostril and looked up. “Why's that?”
“One can't go snorting and blowing snot all over a castle. It would ruin the décor!”
Falita ignored the comment. “A bath would certainly freshen things up.”

“Enough to stay clean, and I don't recall either of you bathing on this trip.”
“I don't need to Princess,” Rizz replied. “I have my own naturally sweet odor.”
Falita scrunched up her nose, “I'm aware of that, and it is not pleasing in camp.”
M.L. Hall, The Apprentice

“Mentorships, similar to other important relationships, usually end. Ideological differences and a need to chart a personal path might preclude parties from maintaining the original balance that stabilized a mentoring relationship. Conflict between an apprentice and his master is not always bad; in fact, it is almost inevitable, if the apprentice’s destiny is to exceed the accomplishments of the master.”
Kilroy J. Oldster, Dead Toad Scrolls

Amor Towles
“Jazz seemed like a naturally gregarious force--one that was a little unruly and prone to say the first thing that popped into its head, but generally of good humour and friendly intent. In addition, it seemed decidedly unconcerned with where it had been or where it was going--exhibiting somehow simultaneously the confidence of the master and the inexperience of the apprentice. Was there any wonder that such an art had failed to originate in Europe?”
Amor Towles, A Gentleman in Moscow

“The apprentice is required to master many techniques before receiving safari guide certification. Among the most difficult and essential of these skills is the ancient practice of unihemispheric slow-wave sleeping. The ability to sleep with half of the brain while the other remains completely alert, alternating between hemispheres, allows the guide to remain conscious twenty-four hours a day. This unconventional method has been observed in a number of terrestrial, aquatic and avian species, particularly those that dwell in areas of high predation. It is strongly recommended that safari guides avoid full REM sleep while guiding safaris. Though, when charged with the care of the most demanding and pampered of clients, a traditional fifteen minute nap is occasionally permitted.”
Jesse Jacobs
