I had forgotten about the part in which Penryn drops Raffe's wings -_-
( there's a perfectly good reason why this actually happened, and no I am not going to say anything else about it ;)
Oh, and the "bird comment"?
Still, pretty good :)
"Does mopping actually help humans feel better?" (..)
"I am not mopping," I whisper back.
"Of course you're not. A girl like you, spending time with a warrior demigod like me. What's to mope about? (..)
"You have got to be kidding me."
"I never kid about my warrior demigod status."
"Oh. My. God." I lower my voice having forgotten to whisper. "You are nothing but a bird with an attitude. Okay, so you have a few muscles I'll grant you that. But you know, a bird is nothing more than a barely evolved lizard. That's what you are."
