    Summary

    Piper was gazing into the bubbling depths of her champagne as though its very existence underwhelmed her. At such an early stage, Greenmantle was not yet to know that everything underwhelmed Piper; that Piper suffered, in fact, from a chronic lack of whelm. “I’m sick of this place," she said, with sudden vehemence. "I’m sick of all these men. I’m sick of all of it. Everything. Don’t bore me.”

    Greenmantle told her, “I’m congenitally incapable of boring anyone.”

    “Prove it,” said Piper.

    (Nothing in the world has ever proved quite as difficult to obtain as Piper.)

    Summary

    "To start with, we'll be working on budgeting. Not just balancing your checkbook, but balancing your entire income stream."

    "Well that's easy enough," Grantaire says in an undertone to Éponine. "I'm doomed to be an unemployed bum anyway. How hard can it be to balance a budget of zero?"

    Lamarque gives him a sharp look, but doesn't take the bait. He continues to speak to the class at large, even when his gaze lingers on Grantaire. "To make the scenario more realistic, as well as more challenging, we'll be doing this as a pairs project. You'll be balancing a budget for your family, not just yourself."

    Grantaire really starts paying attention when Lamarque reaches down beneath his desk and lifts up an unopened bag of flour and sets in on his desk. "Well, that's heteronormative."

    Summary

    Grantaire leans against the edge of the door and looks out at him in bemusement. "You're the smartest man I know, Enjolras. I know your memory isn't this bad."

    Enjolras's smile fades away to a bewildered frown. "What?"

    "They're out again. They're always out on Thursdays. It's date night. I know you know this, I've only told you half a dozen times. And yet you keep showing up."
