Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm.
I shake my head from the memory and inhale lingering aromas of pasta and sauce from dinner. The crunched pieces of paper cling to my skin, but gravity always wins out. My hand hovers for less than a second and Tucker's notes fall into the can joining chicken carcasses from dinner, old eggshells, and orange peels.

I never said she was evil. Nor was she good. Even in the darkest and most cruel person, there is still a kernel of good. And within the most perfect champion, there is also darkness. The question is, will one give into the dark or the light? It's something we decide with every choice we make, every day that we exist. What might not be evil to you could be evil to someone else. Knowing this makes us powerful even without magic.
~ Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes, pg. 215
The seatbelt light came on with a "bong" and the pilot announced we were approaching Hong Kong. Tall, shiny buildings crowded every inch of land; signs of global companies dominated the skyline. It looked as though the island was hosting an international skyscraper conference and every building in the world had flown in for a weekend of seminars, getting drunk on the company dollar, and hitting on the local blocks of flats.

"It's hard enough to find fairies on purpose even when you know where they are. I've always thought fairies are like mushrooms, you trip over them when you're not thinking about them, but they're hard to spot when you're searching for them."
~ Among Others by Jo Walton, pg. 37
I reached with bandaged hands for Garrett, my movements clumsy but demonstrating what I couldn't say: hold me so I don't fall to pieces. So I don't drown in the memories of all that blood.I wanted to be held tightly, gripped so I knew I was still something solid to cling to.
