14. “Are the Trials starting?” The girl claps her hands over her mouth. “I'm sorry,” she whispers. “I—”“It's all right.” I don't smile at her. It will only scare her. For a female slave, a smile from a Mask is not usually a good thing. “I'm actually wondering the same thing. What's your name?”“S-slave-Girl.” Of course. My mother would already have scourged her name out of existence.“Right. You work for the Commandant?” I want her to say no. I want her to say that my mother roped her into this. I want her to say she's assigned to the kitchens or infirmary, where slaves aren't scarred or missing body parts. But the girl nods in response to my question. Don't let my mother break you, I think. The girl meets my eyes, and there is that feeling again, low and hot and consuming. Don't be weak. Fight. Escape.A gust of wind whips a strand free from her bun and across her cheekbone. Defiance flashes across her face as she holds my gaze, and for a second, I see my own desire for freedom mirrored, intensified in her eyes. It's something I've never detected in the eyes of a fellow student, let alone a Scholar slave. For one strange moment, I feel less alone. But then she looks down, and I wonder at my own naiveté. She can't fight. She can't scape. Not from Blackcliff. I smile joylessly; in this, at least, the slave and I are more similar than she'll ever know.”

19. “Old Man River!That seems far too austere a nameFor something made of mirth and rage.O, roiling red-blood river vein,If chief among your traits is age,You're a wily, convoluted sage.Is "old" the thing to call what ringsThe vernal heart of wester-lore;What brings us brassy-myth made kings(And preponderance of bug-type things)To challenge titans come before?Demiurge to a try at Avalon-once-more!And what august vitalityIn your wide aorta streamYou must have had to overseeAlchemic change of timber beamTo iron, brick and engine steam.Your umber whiskey waters lanceThe prideful sober sovereigntyOf faulty-haloed TemperanceAnd wilt her self-sure countenance;Yes, righteousness is vanity,But your sport's for imps, not elderly.If there's a name for migrant massOf veteran frivolityThat snakes through seas of prairie grassAnd groves of summer sassafras,A name that flows as roguishlyAs gypsy waters, fast and free,It's your real name, Mississippi.”

20. “My father once made us," she began, "keep a diary, in two columns; on one side we were to put down in the morning what we thought would be the course and events of the coming day, and at night we were to put down on the other side what really had happened. It would be to some people rather a sad way of telling their lives," (a tear dropped upon my hand at these words) - "I don't mean that mine has been sad, only so very different to what I expected.”

21. “The day my mother gave us the keys, she also made me and Greta sign a form so that the bank knew our signatures. To get in we had to show our key and sign something so they would know it was really us. I was worried that my signature wouldn't look the same. I wasn't sure when that thing would happen that made it so you always signed your name exactly the same, but it hadn't happened to me yet. So far I'd only had to sign something three times. Once for a code of conduct for the eighth grade field trip to Philadelphia, once for a pact I made with Beans and Frances Wykoski in fifth grade that we'd never have boyfriends until high school. (Of the three of us, I'm the only one who kept that pact.)”

25. “I fall into those gaps sometimes.You know, the gaps that open up in between thoughts.I reach out for the walls. Every time. And I grasp at emptiness…The gaps don’t have walls. You don’t need walls to climb out.You don’t need a matchstick either;light only makes your shadows look frightening.You only need to search the darknessfor the old face, carbon paper and a white mask.”
