LITERATURE MEME: [3 / 6] prose writers
 ≽ Robin McKinley

“But I return to you now all that you did give me: all the rage and the terror, the pain and the hatred that should have been love. The nightmares, and the waking dreams that are worse than nightmares because they are memories. These I return to you, for I want them no more, and I will bear them not one whit of my time on this earth more.” [x]
