"Let me tell you a story," Aiden said. "Unless you think that a bus mechanic like me doesn't tell stories."

"Anyway… It's a story about how the phrase 'rich countryside' could connote different things to different people. Heck, it's a story involving some double thing and a few heres too, would you believe? But it's mostly a story about me having been so harsh."

"I wonder, could I blame Liam for all this? After all, it was he who started it, with his being so unreliable, though I'm sure he'd call it 'warmhearted' instead. Gimme a break…"

"People used to think I was warm and adored, but in actual fact I'm just self-indulgent. In the end, it all came down to running out of time. And then, either you face your flaws or you're done for." Connor has always been excited and nice. Well, for a miner, at least. He focused on his business. Some shafts here, a few metallurgical things there. And then came Hudson…
