Quote/Unquote

Here are some readers’ favourite quotes from Legend of Zodiac – Fall of Darkness.

Gillon – “I had to stop for a bite to eat. I would have brought you something but apparently you can’t get blood sacrifices at the drive-thru. But wait I think I do have something you might like.” He dug into his pocket and retrieved a small plastic package. “Ketchup?”

“I will hurt you if you keep this up.” The anger in Aileana’s voice seemed to increase the further up the stairs they went.

“Yeah, but the good kind of hurt right? OW! HOLY CRAP!” yelled Gillon.

“No, that kind of hurt,” said Aileana angrily with an air of finality.

*  *  *

Gwen and Lael – “Rumour has it that Cornelius used it to cut the heads off two former business partners who double crossed him.”

Surprised to find she was no longer alone, Gwen turned quickly to see a boy about her age standing in the doorway.

“What?” she said with a curious expression.

“The sword, I presume that’s what you were looking at.”

“You’re kidding right?” said Gwen doubtfully looking again up at the sword.

A slight smile creased the corners of his mouth. “Yes, but you’d be surprised at the number of people who would tend to believe that it just might be true.”

*  *  *

Gwen suddenly recalled Danny and Toran searching through the tall grass for the cats and she gave them a horrified look.

“Ew, gross,” she said, looking at them with disgust.

“If it makes you feel any better they weren’t very good,” said Danny.

*  *  *

Lael – “Well that might be a bit of a problem because you’d have to be bitten by a vampire and if you died or turned into a vampire then we’d know it isn’t you.”

*  *  *

“This is the entrance for tourists,” replied John coolly.

“I bet a big strong guy like you hears that all the time,” said Gillon with a grin.

*  *  *

“No pressure, little girl,” said Gillon looking at Gwen.

“Not ‘little girl’, Gwen, one syllable, I’m sure you can manage it,” said Gwen giving him a cold look.

*  *  *

“…I opted for plan B. Indian curried chicken on rice with Tandoori cauliflower and a fresh garden salad,” said Paul.

Gwen laughed. “Scotland’s other national dish I take it…”

*  *  *

Gillon – “Do you know why I’m here? Because if I’m going to die, I want the pleasure of seeing you go down as well. Sometimes it’s the only thing that gets me up in the morning…”

*  *  *

“Yes! The drug in the lipgloss should slow his reaction time but just to let you know, if you stop breathing and I have to give you mouth to mouth, it’ll kill you,” said Aileana.

“Well there’d be worse ways to go,” said Gillon.

*  *  *

Lael traced a finger around her chin. “I’ll have my lawyers review your position and if they think I need further clarification I’ll let you know.”

“I hope your lawyers aren’t very bright,” said Gwen.

“Trust me, I’ll pick the stupidest ones I can find,” replied Lael.

“What’s the matter, afraid of sharks and their big bad teeth? You could just bite them back you know. Say, wouldn’t vampire and shark wrestling be a great premise for a reality television show?” Gwen said with a laugh.

*  *  *

“Do you really want it known that you take advantage of blind people? Really it’s your reputation I’m thinking about,” said Lael.

“A blind vampire who has extraordinary senses, you mean. Or is it simply because you don’t want everyone to know you lost to a girl?” replied Gwen.

*  *  *

“By the way, Cornelius, is there actually anything that can kill you?” asked Gillon, his voice tinged with excitement from the adrenaline rush of the fight.

“I don’t know, although I thought your idea of a small nuclear device might be an interesting one to try,” he replied.

*  *  *

Kaestrael to Gillon – “I just want you to know that my friends and I repeatedly make good sport in (Fendel lands) in an effort to ensure that their reputation as an area good for hunting and other—enjoyments remains intact,” said Kaestrael with a cold smile.
