    Summary

    The new kid nearly quivered with keenness. His voice had been scrubbed as clean of any trace of an accent as his face had been of dirt.

    Susan felt the name should have meant something to her, but she couldn’t think what. “Bill,” she ventured, “is that short for Wilhelm?”

    “No, Miss. I’m named for my godfather.”

    Death meets a poor woodcutter who's looking for a just man to be a godfather to his son. The new kid in Susan's class says he's going to be a great physician.

    The Death of Rats is just trying to do his job.

    Summary

    The curve of her back is graceful even as she stoops, the arrow of skin at the base of her neck that is exposed when she lowers her head is whiter than fine linen. It pleases me to see her like this; it is not enough, but I dare not do more. Against her breast, as protection from the dangers of the road, the princess wears a folded handkerchief, and on that handkerchief are three drops of blood.

    The princess and her servant on the road, from Grimm's "The Goose Girl."

    Summary

    There once was a witch who lived in the Dendarii Mountains, and she had a son. This son of hers had been born with legs that curled into themselves, useless, but instead of cutting his throat as she ought to have done, the witch raised him as tenderly as if he had been a healthy child. . . . His legs remained curled and useless, but his arms grew strong, and his mind grew sharp, and his heart grew dark and wild.

    A traditional Barrayaran folktale, based on the traditional American folksong The Rocky Banks of the Buffalo.
