Need

24 Jul

1. From “Need” by Carrie Jones p 197/198 – Nick and Zara are locking up the house to stop the pixies from making Zara into their Queen which will do something very bad to her soul.
[Zara] “What if they break down the door?”
[Nick] “They can’t.”
“How do you know they can’t? That guy looked pretty strong.”
He shouts down to me, “Pixies have to be invited in like vampires. I read it on the internet.”
“Well, there you go, I mutter. It must be true.”
