"I know it must be an adjustment after having faeries, or whatever, do your dirty work for you, but this is how we do things here," she said, shoving a black backpack at me."Please. You must never have met a faerie if you think they do anything dirty," I replied."We've met plenty of faeries," Finley snapped, but her shoulders were up around her ears, and Izzy shot her a curious look.

Author: Tony Hale
