Todays quotation is from Ran Away by Barbara Hambly.
And we won´t speak of any of it at all, of course. The other thing he’d learned in the small gossipy world of that African village in Louisiana’s cane country was not to ever say anything that could get someone hurt, no matter how good a story it made.
You never knew who was listening. Or how trustworthy they were when they’d had a drink or two.
The better the story was, the likelier it was to be passed along.
