Rohan Quine, “The Platinum Raven” – chapter 25 “Electric aliveness and happiness, remembered” – first sample – video
The air is heating fast, as the morning sun slides up another busy city day. The night is gone entirely. And now that it’s gone, she can see a truth that she hates and despises with a vengeance as soon as she catches sight of it.
In effect she’s seeing the nature of the same Great Lie that she half-glimpsed on the occasion when she drove to the mad-faced tower. Then she had the option of postponing apprehension, by burying her head between her knees on the back seat and wailing to the driver to drive away at high speed. Now, she doesn’t have that choice. It’s too late, for now she’s seen too clearly what nobody deserves to see.
