[When Billie Climbed Into The Taxi, Adrian Paid The Cab Driver, Then Braced His Forearms On The Back Window. "Billie. Have You Forgotten?" "No." She Watched The Melting Shift Of Shadows In His Eyes, Unable To Read Them. "A Favor For A Favor. I Owe You." "I'll Call You." He Leaned In To Catch Her Lips One Last Time In A Soft, Lingering Kiss. Then He Stood Back And The Taxi Rolled Out Of The Drive. Billie Took A Single Backward Glance At Him Standing Barefoot, Hands Buried In His Pockets, Where She'd Left Him. God Help Her. Whatever He Wanted, She Would Gladly Give.]

Ibn Hazm Quotes

"Do not use your energy except for a cause more noble than yourself. Such a cause cannot be found except in Almighty God Himself: to preach the truth, to defend womanhood, to repel humiliation which your Creator has not imposed upon you, to help the oppressed.
