Code: Veronica (Resident Evil #6) The Fifth Elephant (Discworld #24)

Etta glanced over at Gabriela. They stood in the wings of the stage, listening to the intermediate orchestra sail through its rendition of Mendelssohn’s Symphony no. 4—the Italian Symphony, as it was also known. They were playing only the first two movements, giving Etta about fourteen minutes to mentally take stock of her nerves and decide whether or not she really did need to throw up or if it would pass, as it usually did, once she was actually onstage.

Why had he ever accepted Ironwood’s job? Why hadn’t he just listened to Hall when he’d advised Nicholas to steer as far away from the family as he was able? Why hadn’t the sea been enough for him? He never should have allowed himself to be drawn back into this web. It was only ever going to catch him, wrap around his throat until it strangled him.But it wouldn’t have stopped Ironwood.

Parasite (Parasitology #1)

He still would have stolen Etta out of her time. She would have been sent on the search alone. Nothing, and no one, was ever going to stop Ironwood until he had the astrolabe, and everything he’d ever desired.She’s not here, he rasped out, trying to grasp the meaning of those words.She… Nicholas forced himself to say, …was most likely never here at all.

Glad Tidings

Sophia looked away. Pride warred with humiliation in him, before both were sunk by a devastation that left him breathless. It stole the years of experience he’d collected in steeling himself to the world, took even that small measure of dignity he’d eked out from his existence. And what was left inside him was that same pain he’d felt as a child, alone in the dark cupboard of the Ironwood house in New York, waiting for some signal of when he was allowed to step outside of it.Thank you, he told Li Min. I apologize…I am…not myself…I do believe…

Will you find her mother, then, to tell her? Li Min asked. This Rose Linden?

No. I’m almost certain she already knows, Nicholas said. Perhaps that was, in the end, why she had never come.Revolt surged inside of him, and must have been clear from his expression, because Sophia turned her horse and led them off the worn road and onto the lush, green earth. Somehow, Nicholas had always pictured this part of the world as entirely desert. But even this late in the year, there was life and vegetation sweeping up from their valley to the peaks of the mountains around them.

He counted the paces under his breath, from the road to where Sophia decided was far enough to drop her saddlebags, and decided it was two hundred paces too far.He could go ahead. Let them rest and catch up to him later.

Devil Said Bang (Sandman Slim #4)

Before he could devise a course of action, Li Min led his horse forward toward the others and began to unhook its harness.He breathed sharply out of his nose, but finally dismounted. I’ll hunt.

Shooting something sounded marvelous, now that he had gunpowder again. He could not shoot with his right arm, useless as it was, but he wasn’t a terrible shot with his left.Li Min is already going, Sophia said, from where she was laying out the bedding. He turned, then turned again, surprised to find Li Min’s small form retreating into the distance. You can find the firewood and kindling.

All right. But I’ll cook.Sophia made a face he didn’t understand.

We’re fine for now, she said, tossing away the wide-brimmed hat she’d found abandoned on the road. Go. Before your expression finally does me in. For someone out for cold-blooded revenge, you’ve got the look of a sad, sorry bastard about you.Somehow, he didn’t doubt it. Nicholas gave her an ironic little bow before setting about the task in front of him. Li Min had not returned by the time they had started the fire and brought the little pot they’d acquired to boil. Rather than try to talk to a stone-faced Sophia, Nicholas slid his right arm from the sling Li Min had knotted for him and lay down with his back to the fire.
