³That¶s why I ordered her here to talk. I need to get all of this resolved,´ I told him as Icleaned up my desk.
You are making a mistake. If you want to know her whereabouts then I¶ll tell you.
³No!´ I calmed myself after raising my voice. ³I don¶t want to hear it from you. She willtell me.´
Fine! You¶re making it harder for yourself. Your kind is lazy, and here I am, providing you with an option to do less work, but you don¶t take it. Absurd!
³You¶re stereotyping. Not all humans are lazy. Do you think I¶m lazy?´ I asked.
You are the exception. You¶re my host. You were never meant to be like the other Corpses.
³Thanks, I think.´ That¶s the closest I¶ve ever gotten to a compliment from Rage. It waskind of nice, in a weird way.We talked as I waited for Rose. It was an okay talk. He gave me a history lesson on thePlague that was really unnecessary. The information wouldn¶t help with the war. It was useless, but it did pass the time.
You¶ll learn more about them soon. The Rose Bud is here.
I stood, walked to the door, and opened it. Rose was leaning against the wall. Her armswere crossed, and she was hiding her face from me. I always knew something was wrong just bylooking at her eyes, and she knew that. She didn¶t want me to see her eyes, but I didn¶t need tosee her beautiful brown eyes to know that something was wrong. She made it obvious.
