There was something different about that, something beyond friendship; they had a way of transferring pain back and forth, without the banality of words."

So that's us: processed corn, walking."

The German technicians invented special hook-tipped poles which were thrust deep into the flesh of the corpses to pull them out."

That perhaps he had an interest in her, too.Perhaps he does.She snorted. The only interest he had was in ruining her life. He still reported to her about her suitors.
