[It Made Me Very Sad, That Question. Sad And Defeated. Because I Knew She Knew Why I Was Thinking About That Woman—I Was Thinking About My Own Tendencies Toward Aloneness And I Thought I Could End Up Like That Woman, With A Bird Perhaps, Or A Dog—probably A Dog, I Know Birds Are Supposed To Make Good Pets But I Think There's Something Creepy About Them—but Alone With A Life That Didn't Touch Or Overlap With Anyone Else's, A Sort Of Hermetically Sealed Life.]

Then he ruined the effect by adding thoughtlessly, I must say, your cloak did flutter around like a butterflys wings." - Author: John Flanagan
