There would be his willingness to bestow upon me the power to reassure him. He would trust me with his happiness."

To Roberts, it was a strong drug, a drug of evocation; the black deep without calling to the black deep within, and summoning the inhabitant thereof to come forth."

Every one of us is standing on that darkened stage, condemned, lost and wandering, needing to be found."
