‘You realise that they’re sisters, right?’ Levi said, his voice getting tighter. ‘You’re talking about incest.’
The guy laughed. ‘No, I’m talking about buying them drinks until they start making out.’
‘Is that what happens with you and your sister?’
From Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
‘Malfoy got Hermione!’ Ron said. ‘Look!‘
He forced Hermione to show Snape her teeth – she was doing her best to hide them with her hands, though this was difficult as they had now grown down past her collar. Pansy Parkinson and the other Slytherin girls were doubled up with silent giggles, pointing at Hermione from behind Snape’s back.
Snape looked coldly at Hermione, then said, ‘I see no difference.’
From Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J. K. Rowling
‘Tell me, that other woman…’ I said as I reached his side, ‘I hope she can find her own way home… she looked so dreadfully unwell. Who was she?’
‘The young woman with the wasted face,’ I urged, ‘at the back of the church and then in the graveyard a few yards away from us.’
Mr Jerome stopped dead. He was staring at me.
‘A young woman?’
‘Yes, yes, with the skin stretched over her bones, I could scarcely bear to look at her… she was tall, she wore a bonnet type of hat… I suppose to try and conceal as much as she could of her face, poor thing.’
For a few seconds, in that quiet, empty lane, in the sunshine, there was such a silence as must have fallen again now inside the church, a silence so deep that I heard the pulsation of the blood in the channels of my own ears. Mr Jerome looked frozen, pale, his throat moving as if he were unable to utter.
‘Is there anything the matter?’ I asked him quickly. ‘You look unwell.’
At last he managed to shake his head – I almost would say, that he shook himself, as though making an extreme effort to pull himself together after suffering a momentous shock, though the colour did not return to his face and the corners of his lips seemed tinged with blue.
At last he said in a low voice, ‘I did not see a young woman.’
From The Woman in Black by Susan Hill
