Jesper knocked his head against the hull and cast his eyes heavenward. ‘Fine. But if Pekka Rollins kills us all, I’m going to get Wylan’s ghost to teach my ghost how to play the flute just so that I can annoy the hell out of your ghost.’

Brekker’s lips quirked. ‘I’ll just hire Matthias’ ghost to kick your ghost’s ass.’

‘My ghost won’t associate with your ghost,’ Matthias said primly, and then wondered if the sea air was rotting his brain.” - Six of Crows, Chapter 15

  • wylan: final question. you and inej have a dinner date booked at seven. at what time do you arrive?
  • kaz: seven. AM. case the restaurant, run background checks on the staff. can the cook be trusted? if not, kill him. dispose of the body, replace him with my own guy no later than 4:30.
  • wylan: you’re ready.
  • kaz: really?
  • wylan: no. everything you said was insane.

That he was twisted, crooked, wrong, but not so broken that he couldn’t pull himself together into some semblance of a man for her. That without meaning to, he’d begun to lean on her, to look for her, to need her near.
