Monotony and Sameness
“Something's changed about you.” Prudence's words slipped into my stomach like a worm and writhed with passion inside. “Ever since you brought me back here in Cinnabar, you're the one hounding me when it used to be the other way around.”
“Really?” I asked her.
“Even in broad daylight.”
Did I become like the city, forever feigning monotony and sameness when the truth was changes hammered it every day, changes so little and minute they're invisible to the naked eyes of any busy Cinnabarian and only one who's aligned with the city's spirit and soul could notice the gradual differences?
Prudence also appears in the novel I Killed My Friends and It Thrilled Me.
