She started reading. She didn’t mean to spend long at it, but soon she was devouring every word, oblivious to the creaking old home and the rain outside.

Let the winds blow , lad
Let fall the deep snow.
Let the stars fall, lad
We’ll answer the call.
Let the dark come , lad
Ask not where it’s from.
After the fight , lad
We’ll see morning’s light.

That’d be a fine new strategy, I think. When the enemy wields a sword against me, I’ll simply express my love for them. They’ll be so shocked, they’ll collapse on the spot and the victory will be mine.

He waited for me to look at him, and I gave him the finest acknowledgement I could,which mostly consisted of me gathering spit in my mouth in case he happened to lean in closer.

She looked at me, like she was drinking in the fact that I was still here. And I realized I was doing the same thing. The world was collapsing, and the only thing that really mattered to me was that she was alive.

We came and went, and life goes on, and the land that was here before is will still be here after we’re dead and gone. Birds will still fly. Rain will still fall. The world didn’t end, it just … reset.

Watching people is a good hobby, but you have to be careful about it. You can’t let people catch you staring at them. If people catch you, they treat you like a first-class criminal. And maybe they’re right to do that. Maybe it should be a crime to try to see things about people they don’t want you to see.
