‘ “Who is she?”
“Where did she come from?”
“We don’t know. All we know is she’s been here longer than anyone else and she does things for the king” ‘

‘Mouse looked at her like she was a warrior angel. If only she knew how Harper felt inside.’
‘She had vowed to her God never to kill a man, she didn’t want to anyway.

‘She liked how the sun felt on her neck. It made her heart feel warm, and when he looked at her she did not know what to think. All the thoughts flew out of her head like bumblebees.’
