She lay flung upon it, her chest rising and falling slowly like the famous Sleeping Beauty waxwork or Madame du Barry. Her fair hair was scattered on the pillow, and a large, bloody welt ran across her forehead. Each of her wrists was tied to a post of the bed. "Our Sophie?"Tessa glanced over at Sophie, who was sitting in a chair by the door. Her head was down, and she was staring at her hands. She studiously avoided looking at Tessa or Will.

Today's Quote

Buduci da ništa nisu odgovarali,kapnuo sam na mikroskop kap kiseline. Mrtva se materija nadula, nemirno se pokretala amo-tamo, pocela je i živeti, ispuštala vonj truleži, ponovo se umirila i umrla.Bez sumnje, mogu probuditi mrtve, ali necu to ponoviti još jednom, jer mrtvi imaju neugodan zadah poput bludnika nakon probancene noci.Zar ne spavaju cvrsto tu dole cekajuci uskrsnuce?"
