08 - "The rest is just silence"

Belle was there when I got back that night, she knew what I had done just by looking at me. She never judged me but I know she thought I didn't deserve to be forgiven. When I asked her about it years later, how it could be that he looked so calm as they left, she said "being born is a death sentence, the rest is just silence".

It's the first and only time I've heard a 15-year-old quote Hamlet, but that's just who she is.

  2. I do remember some of my 15-year-old friends quoting "get thee to a nunnery" a couple times... but hardly in an appropriate context.
