Author: Atarah al'Norahn
Leane says that her mother used to say that if a man hears more promises than you mean to offer, and expects to have them fulfilled, you have miscalculated badly, and that if there is no way out, you must either abandon your dignity and run, or else pay the price and use it as a lesson. Her aunt Resara would say that you should pay the price and enjoy it.
She used to say that men are better sport than hawks.
