Like Jenga, She fits so well into my Madness…

They be like, “Curiosity killed the cat.”

Me: So does lung cancer in which case what do I have to lose?

My life?

I’m a dead man walking as is so the Earth has nothing on me that Death doesn’t have already. ⁂

Isaiah 40:31 

But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Quran 4:29

O you who have believed, do not consume one another’s wealth unjustly but only [in lawful] business by mutual consent.

And do not kill yourselves [or one another].

Indeed, Allah is to you ever Merciful.
“His mouth curls into a smile.

His eyes shine with wicked intent. “Look at them all, your subjects.

A shame majority does not know who their true ruler is.”

“You could still be lying,” says the Roach. He turns to Cardan. “Try her.”

“Your pardon?” Cardan says, drawing himself up, and the Roach seems to suddenly remember to whom he’s speaking in such an offhanded way.

“Don’t be such a prickly rose, Your Majesty,” the Roach says with a shrug and a grin. “I’m not giving you an order. I’m suggesting that if you tried to glamour Jude, we could find out the truth.”

Cardan sighs and walks toward me. I know this is necessary. I know that he doesn’t intend to hurt me. I know he can’t glamour me. And yet I draw back automatically.

“Jude?” he asks.

“Go ahead,” I say.

I hear the glamour enter his voice, heady and seductive and more powerful than I expected. “Crawl to me,” he says with a grin. Embarrassment pinks my cheeks.

I stay where I am, looking at all their faces. “Satisfied?”

The Bomb nods. “You’re not charmed.”

“The rose petal floats on water. The kingfisher flashes above the pond.

“Watching my back is the perfect opportunity to stick a knife in it.”

“Each of you will have a chance to play it, and whosoever plays most sweetly, you will have it.

For art is more than virtue or vice.”

Become Jesus King of Poland or Marry Jenna Coleman? (I choose Her every time.)

“If you’re the sickness, I suppose you can also be the cure.”

“Balekin and Orlagh are planning your murder,” I say flustered.

“Yes,” he says lazily. “So why did I wake at all?” 

― Holly Black, The Wicked King
“Legends need not concern themselves with something as small as happiness” 

― Holly Black, The Wicked King
