Camilla: But you're still gonna help me. You know why?
Ed: No, why?
Camilla is suddenly very close. Her front is pressed against my back. My right shoulder joins her cigarette holder as she leans in like a vampire, her lips practically touching me ear.
Camilla: Because you're in love with me.
Her voice sputters a bit between resonation and pure breath, the voice of a girl who's never done a lot of whispering, but it's honey sweet all the same.
