During the performance I began to feel very drowsy, and eventually fell fast asleep leaning against one of the pillars.

They looked away, as if they didn't see what was happening. Anger boiled in her chest. Why wouldn't they leave her alone? She hadn't killed anyone. She hadn't killed Harlen Trooper, all those years ago. She knew it and the judge knew it. She hadn't even been charged. If I wanted to, I could have you all killed, she thought, and was stunned when the thought didn't scare her the way it should.

She pictured the terror in their eyes when they realized they were messing with the wrong fucking demon, they were - Demon?"

Not his own man, but a pawn to be used by others. A tool, same as his sword, to help others, that they might have the life he had only glimpsed for a twinkling.He was no different from the dark things in the boundary. A bringer of death."
Author: Terry Goodkind

Their distance from him was something that couldn't even be measured in space -they existed in another dimension.
