2. Hollis' attitude
Direct Quote: "Josie put her hand under my chin and tilted my face so I had to look at her. I wish you could see yourself the way I see you. I did cry then, but just for a moment. If I had let myself go I would have had a hard time stopping."

6. Josie and Hollis' relationship
Direct Quote: "It wasn't just that she was movie-star beautiful, or that she was wearing a blue dress made of flimsy stuff that floated around her, and rings on eight of her fingers. It was this: She had a knife in one hand. She held it in front of her so it caught the glint of late-afternoon sunshine and became a silvery light itself ."
