Kamand Kojouri
“My love,
you are driving the entire world mad.
The nightingales are committing suicide
one by one out of jealousy of your voice.
The roses took one glance at your beauty
and folded themselves from shame.
The trees now only whisper your name
and the sky hasn’t stopped crying since you looked up.
Have pity on us, my love.
We have already broken all the mirrors and glass
out of fear that you will forget us
and fall in love with yourself
once you see what we all
cannot stop seeing.”
Kamand Kojouri

“I thought Lady Helen was going to introduce you to the lady doctor who treated Pandora's shoulder."
"Dr. Gibson? Yes, she's a marvelous woman. As a matter of fact, she came to visit Eversby Priory this summer."
All Phoebe's pleasant feelings abruptly turned disagreeable. "Surely not without a chaperone."
"Garrett Gibson doesn't bother with chaperones," West replied, his lips twitching as if at some private memory. "The usual rules don't apply to her. She brought a patient, Mr. Ethan Ransom, who was injured and needed to recuperate in peace and quiet."
Poisonous jealousy flooded Phoebe. The female doctor was an accomplished and unconventional woman- exactly the kind who would attract his interest. "You must have found her fascinating."
"Anyone would.”

“Even though Dia hadn’t been killed yet, if the world was a table, with people as plates—then Dia had already been pushed off, falling to the floor. On the 'table' where Dia formerly was, the merry festival continued, everyone danced happily—as if nothing had happened.
