Raven’s tent was surprisingly luxurious, like a tent belonging to a maharajah out of an old fairy tale. Garfield had honestly imagined that the tea sorcerer was an old woman who lived alone in a run down shack that balanced precariously under an ancient tree, and who talked to herself. He did not even think to entertain the idea that she was a woman his own age who kept two ravens for company and lived in a comfortable tent with two rooms and plush rugs lining the floor.
Not to mention she was surprisingly beautiful… in a wild, ethereal kind of way; like a ghost or a specter.
He sat on the floor of her tent with his legs crossed as she chopped up the raw meat that was in the package she had brought with her. The smell of blood and flesh made him nearly sick, but he would deal with it to get what he needed. It was only temporary after all. His stomach churned and his nostrils flared, but he just wrapped his scarf tighter around his face to try to staunch the smell from getting too close to him.
"It’s the dead of summer, Garfield Logan. You do know there’s no need to wear a woolen scarf?" She separated the meat into two small bowls, never looking up into his face. "I’d be more worried about the heat trapped under your clothes than whatever you are trying to hide."
"I’m not hiding anything."
1. Because a woman brought into this world will inevitably be given pepper spray “just in case.”
2. Because by sixteen, a young girl knows how to avoid being sexually assaulted, while a boy of the same age does not fear sexual assault in the slightest.
3. Because a girl who mocks men is a bitch, and a boy who mocks women is joking.
4. Because a girl who has sex is a slut, and a boy who has sex is a man.
5. Because in a murder, the killer is at fault, but the blame of rape is often put on the victim.
6. Because we teach girls how not to get raped instead of teaching anyone simply not to rape.
7. Because a woman should put more clothes on if her outfit makes a man uncomfortable, because his self control is her responsibility.
8. Because feminists just need to chill out.
9. Because a 22 year old sex-obsessed virgin can murder 7 people, and the problem is that someone should’ve just slept with him.
10. Because not all men are predators, but yes, all women are prey.
