But if you tame me, it will be as if the sun came to shine in my life. I shall know the sound of a step that will be different from all the others. Other steps send me hurrying back underneath the ground. Yours will call me, like music, out of my burrow. And then look: you see the grain-fields down yonder? I do not eat bread. Wheat is of no use to me. The wheat fields have nothing to say to me. And that is sad. But you have hair that is the color of gold. Think how wonderful that will be when you have tamed me! The grain, which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you. And I shall love to listen to the wind in the wheat…
One day only!

I didn’t hate Eldric, which, for me, is about as good as things get.
I felt lost. I needed to hide away. Escape. There was only one thing I could do to ease the pain. I turned to the only four guys who’d never let me down. The only four guys who’d never broken my heart, who’d never disappointed me. John, Paul, George, and Ringo.
I, Penny Lane Bloom, do solemnly swear to never date another boy for as long as I shall live.
The Sphinx stares at me from her plinth. I edge closer, daring her to open her mouth and enspell me with her riddles. She crouches, eyes a-glitter, teeth gleaming through parted lips.
I’d rather live laughing for one year than live without laughing for a hundred
