    Summary

    “There’s a thread of frenzy inside your soul that’s never been plucked. You’ve been aching for it for years, aching to know what it is to lose your rational mind, lose your words, lose every thought in your head, become nothing more than an insensible body, a panting, rutting animal, - but nobody’s ever drawn that out of you, have they? Is it that nobody’s ever known how...or perhaps that nobody has tried?”

    Summary

    "Why did you kiss me, that day?"

    Henry blinked once, then twice, but I knew he knew exactly what I was referring to. Then, to my surprise, he sent me a pitying look, but it was also of amusement, as if I had asked the simplest of things–if dinosaurs still existed, or who Homer was. As if he couldn't quite believe yet that I was questioning such. I braced myself.

    "Because I wanted to."

    Summary

    Mr. Hobart went on polishing something and brought me back into the workshop:
    “So, Francis and you live together now, I hear?”
    “We are roommates, yes.” I was suddenly embarrassed and stopped caressing the chair.
    “Roommates. I see.”
    His dark eyes gleamed in the dusty twilight. I felt my cheeks turn hot.
    “It’s good for Francis to have a – roommate at last. Seems to suit him very well. He looks much better than last summer.”

    Summary

    So; I spent my nights with my fingers entwined in Francis' hair as he slept soundly in my arms, recalling of every instance wherein Henry Winter had seemed to be my scholar, my savior, the stoic genius who stole my mind and planned my downfall with meticulous ease.

    Summary

    Unseen of the others, I noticed an intense glance between Henry and Camilla across the table. The light from the ceiling made Camilla’s hair shine like gold. Her gray eyes rested calmly on Henry. When I looked at him quickly, I saw a strange glow in his eyes, and I suddenly knew: he had seen Camilla in this state. He had brought her there. I swallowed.
