“What does a promise mean,
when made to a monster?

—No beast will find us
where we run!”

( His eyes forgive me. )

For I would sell all I had
to own myself.

Book: Kissing the Witch by Emma Donoghue

Even ones that are very old and falling apart?
I always feel bad for them, myself.
That's one reason why I do it. :)

Thank you, regardless! :)

I usually try to put falling apart books back together. Maybe I'll try doing something like this next time I find one. ^^
