Hey, if you’re on Discord, come join the Comic Tea Party server! It’s a webcomic community that does regular book-club discussions…and Leif & Thorn is coming up soon on the schedule.
Grassie: Oh, honey, it’ll be fine! Just like when we used to tour in those dingy hotels, remember?
Who always convinced the spirits in the heating duct to turn it up a little?
Hedge: That was different! There’s an earthquake. The rest of the building might not be safe!
Thorn (thinking): It’s a good thing I already know Grassie lives a long life, or I’d be tempted to help . . .
Grassie: Well, if it’s dangerous, I can just take the guard to watch out for me!
Thorn (thinking): . . . or maybe I’m why she lives a long life.
