Quote of the Day

"People on Herald say you have PTSD and you became a  hermit like a monk because of it."

"Either a hermit or a monk, not both," I corrected out of habit.
"Herald also said he was disfigured." Arabella made big eyes.
"Yes, I'm a hermit. Mostly I brood," Mad Rogan said. "Also I'm very good at wallowing in self-pity. I spend my days steeped in melancholy, looking out the window. Occasionally a single tear quietly rolls down my cheek."
Arabella and Lina snickered in unison.
"Do you also brush a white orchid against your lips?" Arabella put in. 
"While sad music plays in the background?" Lina grinned.
"Perhaps," Mad Rogan said.
