    “We left so many behind,” Francis croaked.

    “We did not leave them,” James said. “They were simply left. There is no blame to lay.”

    Summary

    “We wasted so much damn time despising one another,” Francis murmured, suddenly rueful.

    “I never despised you,” James said simply. His face, as it always seemed to be these days, was terribly open. “You merely made it so hard for people to like you.”

    Summary

    Miss Gibson said, “In the spirit of truthful admission, Miss Bennet, I intend to spend some time devising the right question for you. If I may see you again?”

    Why did that sound strange? But she always sounded strange to people herself. And it was a familiar kind of strangeness, as if it were something she had heard before, only not like this.

    Mary, constrained by the principles of truth, could only admit that she would enjoy that very much.

    Summary

    “The trick is,” Jacobi tells her sometime, sitting in her lab, neck full of fresh bruises and bite marks, “to be dead inside, but just a little. Just enough to not care about how horrible we are. Not enough to be incapable of enjoying it.”

    “Yeah,” she says, nods. “Yeah.” She’s a little high on energy drinks, and it makes perfect sense, really.
