2 Works in Vasa Luigi Bharaputra
They know just as much about Lotus as she knows about herself. They know her aptitudes, her weaknesses. They have tweaked the neurochemical bath on her copies, for maximum effect. They are her, improved. She is them, unedited. She hates them.
Lotus Durona: Nature or nurture?
"Take a hold of me when I pass by.
Hold me tight to you.
Promise me you won't let go
No matter what they do.
"They'll turn me into a frightening beast,
And things to give alarm,
But underneath I'm your own love still
And I will not do you harm.
"They'll turn me to a lion.
They'll turn me into a snake.
They'll turn me into a burning thing,
All to get your grip to break.
Tam Lin, traditional ballad
- Part 2 of Life in a Fairy Tale
