So, I ask this. How can you not love a huge, Scottish Highlander with tattoos on his face on the verge of a berserker rage and his second, a woman underdeveloped that moves at the speed of light and often time catches things on fire because of it?
The story is beautiful and when Byrne and Jayr finally get together it is just explosive. It's a must read!
How truthful may I write of this,
The want of love, the love I hide?
My passion drowned by cowardice
Yet evermore by hope revived.
You do not want me
However much I need.
You will not see me
However much I bleed.
Thus I dwell in silence, for
I have made well my prison
loving you, evermore.
How are we to live, my lord,
ever together, forever apart?
The night between us poised, a sword,
forged and edged in my cinder heart.
I cannot have you,
however much I long.
I cannot leave you,
this bond too strong.
Thus I go on as I have before,
burning in Eden, with you,
