Cass (End of Book One)

“Why is the bird still here?” grumbles Cinder.

They watch Jo’s adopted eagle preen itself.  “It’s cute,” says Cass.

“It is an idiot.”

“Hey,” says Jo.  “Can we focus on, y’know, the terrible idol that nearly got us all killed?”

Cass instinctively puts a hand on the statue in its sling.  “We should get moving.”

“Fine, whatever.  Where are we going?”

“The Vale.  It’s where I’m supposed to take it.”

“Who the hell contracted you for this thing, anyway?”

“That,” says Cass, without looking at him, “is a long story.”

“Who – no.  Cass.  Not her.”

“Let’s just go.”

They do.
