After a while Mary said, "Zsadist?"


"What are those markings?"

His frowned and flicked his eyes over to her, thinking, as if she didn't know? But then . . . well, she had been a human. Maybe she didn't. "They're slave bands. I was . . . a slave."

"Did it hurt when they were put on you?"


"Did the same person who cut your face give them to you?"

"No, my owner's hellren did that. My owner . . . she put the bands on me. He was the one who cut my face."

"How long were you a slave?"

"A hundred years."

"How did you get free?"

"Phury. Phury got me out. That's how he lost his leg."

"Were you hurt while you were a slave?"

Z swallowed hard. "Yes."

"Do you still think about it?"

"Yes." He looked down at his hands, which suddenly were in pain for some reason. Oh, right. He'd made two
fists and was squeezing them so tightly his fingers were about to snap off at the knuckles.

"Does slavery still happen?"

"No. Wrath outlawed it. As a mating gift to me and Bella."

"What kind of slave were you?"

Zsadist shut his eyes. Ah, yes, the question he didn't want to answer. For a while it was all he could do to force himself to stay in the chair. But then, in a falsely level voice, he said,
"I was a blood slave. I was used by a female for blood."

The quiet after ~ J.R. Ward
Mary Plain quotes by J.R. Ward
Few gynecologists recommend to their heterosexual patients the most foolpoof of solutions, namely, misterectomy. ~ Mary Daly
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Daly
To open his lips is crime in a plain citizen. ~ Quintus Ennius
Mary Plain quotes by Quintus Ennius
I like the term "decedent." It's as though the man weren't dead, but merely involved in some sort of protracted legal dispute. For evident reasons, mortuary science is awash with euphemisms. "Don't say stiff, corpse, cadaver," scolds The Principles and Practice of Embalming. "Say decedent, remains or Mr. Blank. Don't say 'keep.' Say 'maintain preservation.' ... "Wrinkles are "acquired facial markings." Decomposed brain that filters down through a damaged skull and bubbles out the nose is "frothy purge. ~ Mary Roach
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Roach
I often think how unadventurous my life must seem from the outside, though I do like my job. ~ Mary Hoffman
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Hoffman
You haven't seen crazy, baby. ~ Mary Elizabeth
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Elizabeth
Bringing up teenagers is like sweeping back ocean waves with a frazzled broom-the inundation of outside influences never stops. Whatever the lure-cars, easy money, cigarettes, drugs, booze, sex, crime-much that glitters along the shore has a thousand times the appeal of a parent's lecture. ~ Mary Ellen Snodgrass
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Ellen Snodgrass
There is something about boys," she said, "that makes them think it is unmanly to show any feelings other than scorn and irritation or any enthusiasm for anything. It is a very unattractive trait. ~ Mary Balogh
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Balogh
Ladies and Gentlemen! Silence please!" Every one was startled. They looked round-at each other, at the walls. Who was speaking? The Voice went on- a high clear voice.

Prisoners at the bar, have you anything to say in your defense? ~ Agatha Christie
Mary Plain quotes by Agatha Christie
I've always been interested in photographing traditions and customs - especially in America. The prom is an American tradition, a rite of passage that has always been one of the most important rituals of American youth. It is a day in our lives that we never forget - a day full of hopes and dreams for our future. ~ Mary Ellen Mark
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Ellen Mark
If anyone was to perform the classic folly of taking a midnight stroll among the murderous gentlemen with whom the hotel was probably packed, it was not going to be me. ~ Mary Stewart
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Stewart
What happens is that the system builds many inferior blood vessels in the eye to take the place of the vessels that are dying. And those blood vessels are not up to the task. And they bleed. They hemorrhage and they cover the eye inside with blood. ~ Mary Tyler Moore
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Tyler Moore
I am strong and on the road to recovery away from the place that caused so much pain. I am free. I am a bird whose broken wing is now mended and I am able to escape the steel cage I was once trapped in. ~ Mary E. Palmerin
Mary Plain quotes by Mary E. Palmerin
Grow up, Brett baby, I would share a lot of things with a lot of people, money, clothes, bed and board, even my last crust I'd be willing to share, but one thing I won't share is a man. You'd better believe it. ~ Mary Moore
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Moore
I still have a stammer that I can control by not opening a sentence with a hard consonant, or by concentrating for a moment, breathing softly down. Growing up, the 'Our Father' was lovely, made for me, the 'Hail Mary' was gorgeous, and 'Glory Be to the Father' was an absolute nightmare. ~ Colm Toibin
Mary Plain quotes by Colm Toibin
You can always test the quality of religious teaching by the enthusiastic reception it receives from unsaved men. If the natural man receives it enthusiastically, it is not of the Spirit of God. Paul says plainly that the natural man cannot know spiritual things. To him, spiritual things are plain foolishness (see 1 Cor. 2:14). ~ A.W. Tozer
Mary Plain quotes by A.W. Tozer
It is wonderful how shy even liberal ministers generally are about trusting people with the plain truth concerning their religion. They want to veil it in a supernatural haze. They are very reluctant to part with the old idea that God has given to Jews and Christians a peculiar monopoly of truth. It is a selfish view of God's government of the world, and it is time that we knew enough to outgrow it. ~ Lydia M. Child
Mary Plain quotes by Lydia M. Child
She grabbed her clutch bag and circled her arms around his neck. "Caulder McCutchen, I'm really not sure what you are."
He lifted his head and looked down at her, squinted. "I'm a man. Enough said?"
Velia smiled and looped her arm through his. "Yes, sir. Shall we go? ~ Mary J. McCoy-Dressel
Mary Plain quotes by Mary J. McCoy-Dressel
The immensity of the death was numbing. But I knew at some point tears would come again. The pain would take hold of me unexpectedly and throw me to my knees. There were no rules to grief, but there were rules to life, and in those first few days, the requirements of the living demanded I keep going. - The Beauty of Darkness ~ Mary E. Pearson
Mary Plain quotes by Mary E. Pearson
An apostolic missionary must have both heart and tongue ablaze with charity. ~ Anthony Mary Claret
Mary Plain quotes by Anthony Mary Claret
Traffic is one of the most powerful films to come out in recent years. It blew me away. ~ Mary Hart
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Hart
Papa cut his business trip short when he heard how ill you were. He'll be home on the afternoon train. Won't he be happy to see you looking so well!"
Hannah came running up the stairs. "Dr. Fulton's on his way, Mama."
"He's in for a surprise, isn't he?" Mrs. Tyler smiled at me. "Dr. Fulton didn't think you'd live till morning, Andrew. The very idea--Hannah told him it would take more than diphtheria to kill you. ~ Mary Downing Hahn
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Downing Hahn
When knowledge comes in at the door, fear and superstition fly out of the window. ~ Mary Roberts Rinehart
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Roberts Rinehart
Dead people never seem to address the obvious - the things you'd think they'd be bursting to talk about, and the things all of us not-yet-dead are madly curious about. Such as: 'Hey, where are you now? What do you do all day? What's it feel like being dead? Can you see me? Even when I'm on the toilet? Would you cut that out?' ~ Mary Roach
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Roach
Part of the task of the leader is to make others participate in his leadership. The best leader knows how to make his followers actually feel power themselves, not merely acknowledge his power. ~ Mary Parker Follett
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Parker Follett
But who am I if I'm not Janie the bulimic? Bulimia has become so much a part of me that I can't remember what it felt like not to purge. It's been this secret that I have hidden from my parents and my friends (well, except for Nancy) and the rest of the world. It's the way I can let off the pressure of always feeling like I'm not smart enough, I'm not thin enough, not pretty enough, not funny enough, just plain not enough enough. ~ Sarah Darer Littman
Mary Plain quotes by Sarah Darer Littman
The world before us is a postcard, and I imagine the story we are writing on it. ~ Mary E. Pearson
Mary Plain quotes by Mary E. Pearson
I love acting, and ultimately all my characters are very different, and each character I love in a different way. ~ Catherine Mary Stewart
Mary Plain quotes by Catherine Mary Stewart last she drew on her gloves, straightened her hat, and went away with that odd self-possession which seems to characterize all the older women of the Crescent. Time takes its toll of them, death and tragedy come inevitably, but they face the world with quiet faces and unbroken dignity. ~ Mary Roberts Rinehart
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Roberts Rinehart
What do you not have, Lord Hardford?" she asked. "For no one has everything, you know, or even nearly everything. ~ Mary Balogh
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Balogh
Curiosity, earnest research to learn the hidden laws of nature, gladness akin to rapture, as they unfolded to me, are among the earliest sensations I can remember. ~ Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley
Controlling the breathing pattern controls the mind, which maximizes the energy and vitality of the body because of the unhampered flow of the life force. ~ Mary Terhune
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Terhune
A mind that is lively and inquiring, compassionate, curious, angry, full of music, full of feeling, is a mind full of possible poetry. ~ Mary Oliver
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Oliver
Mary had a crypto key, she kept it in escrow, and everything that Mary said, the Feds were sure to know. ~ Sam Simon
Mary Plain quotes by Sam Simon
prior planning prevents poor performance. Andrew would ~ Mary Higgins Clark
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Higgins Clark
Truth is not over there, wherever over there is. Truth is neither housed in religious rituals nor secret doctrines, nor in a guru's touch or beatific smile, nor in exotic locations or ancient temples. Truth is quite literally the only thing that does exist. It is not hidden but in plain view, not lacking but abundantly present. ~ Adyashanti
Mary Plain quotes by Adyashanti
It happened all the time in this city that encompassed seven hills, two continents, three seas and fifteen million mouths. It happened behind closed doors and in open courtyards; in cheap motel rooms and five-star luxury suites; in the midst of the night or plain daylight. The brothels of this city could tell many a story had they only found ears willing to listen. Call girls and rent boys and aged prostitutes beaten, abused and threatened by clients looking for the smallest excuse to lose their temper. Transsexuals who never went to the police for they knew they could be assaulted a second time. Children scared of particular family members and new brides of their fathers- or brothers-in-law; nurses and teachers and secretaries harassed by infatuated lovers just because they had refused to date them in the past; housewives who would never speak a word for there were no words in this culture to describe marital rape. It happened all the time. Canopied under a mantle of secrecy and silence that shamed the victims and shielded the assailants. Istanbul was no stranger to sexual abuse. In this city where everyone feared outsiders, most assaults came from those who were too familiar, too close. ~ Elif Shafak
Mary Plain quotes by Elif Shafak
Imprisonment itself, entailing loss of liberty, loss of citizenship, separation from family and loved ones, is punishment enough for most individuals, no matter how favorable the circumstances under which the time is passed. ~ Mary B. Harris
Mary Plain quotes by Mary B. Harris
It's "I felt bad," not "I felt badly," because "to feel badly" would mean "to grope about ineptly." The verb "felt" - definitely a verb of the senses, though not on Gordon's list - fuses the "bad" to the subject, rather than simply using an adverb to modify itself. ~ Mary Norris
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Norris
I'm bred for farm work, and for such folk, the only A's you get come from effort. Strife and strain are all the world can offer, and they temper you into something unbreakable because Lord knows they'll try
without let up
to break you. ~ Mary Karr
Mary Plain quotes by Mary Karr
Philip ripped at the wrapper of the plain, inadequately thin Hershey bar. "No almonds."
"I don't care for nuts."
"You proved that when you slammed your foot between the legs of your friend this evening. ~ Nora Roberts
