The ceiling was really interesting, in that the patterns on the acoustical tiles would occasionally form a secret message or a mosaic of startling and beautiful patterns.

” K asked her.“Oh, fine,” Dawn answered, looking in her bag for her medication. You know how it goes.”“Smallpox doesn't exist anymore,” K said, pointing at her bandaged arm. On this world.”Dawn looked up at him.“I knew some people who went to QFU,” he said. One of them didn't talk about it unless she was drunk. The first leg of her flight was to London Heathrow, and she had two weeks before she had to report at QFU, so she'd decided on doing some touristy stuff. It lasted all the way up until the attendant shushed them for flight instructions.
Jenny handed K his sunglasses.“No flashy-thinging us,” she admonished him.“Wouldn't think of it,” he answered, tucking the sunglasses into the same pocket as his neuralizer.“Can we get food? “We need to start weening you off.”“Everything okay, young lady? You should consider the same possibility when it comes to demons and vampires.”“You know, that very wise man died in that play. Once I find out where Buffy Summers lives, I'm sending her a Hallmark card and a fruit basket.”Which shut J's mouth, because K had yet to buy anything that didn't directly contribute to his own survival or consist of a recording of country music.“Besides,” K continued.

I couldn't risk you going to Europe without knowing.”Now it was Dawn's turn to hang on to Jenny's hand and do her very best not to cry.“I thought,” she sniffled.

K glanced up from the stack of pancakes he was in the process of demolishing.The lights were low, and the curtains pulled, making it pleasantly dark. But, scrubbing narwhal pee out of the carpet and telling Genghis Khan's decapitated body to stop walking into the davenport was one thing. “Wake up, Dawnie.”A voice pulled her out of a Stygian undertow, and she grabbed on to it and held tight while awareness flooded in.
