"She's my first cousin. She's going to be a nun.""Is she beautiful?""There's no one to touch her.""Does she know you love her?""Of course."I paused.

This, Eva felt, was Nemesis's true purpose—that no one person or organization should be responsible for addressing wrongdoing, but that everyone labored together for justice. Eva's own parents could not fault her for wanting this."
