Oh yes, I remember this one... The one you tricked me about. *snickers* Yay for French! Hehe. I loved how you did the Albert/Aleksey scene, too. That was a bit of a shock, but not too much, since there had to be more to him. I really loved this line:
However, Albert just smiled back at her. "And is that a lie?" he asked himself while stroking his chin. "What exactly would a lie be? A discrepancy with the truth?" he asked her. "The rub there is the idea of truth. In the end, truth is simply a perception of the world, no matter how many may share it. And perception is more opinion than fact."
Rather true. Hehe. You know, I think I'll go and bug Larna with that. *nod* Anyway. I loved how Albert/Aleksey's personality has changed some. It really shows how much different he is behind what he portrayed himself as to Ginny, earlier in the story. And I loved how you end your chapters, this one especially. It kind of ends on a serious/sad/calm note, and still keeps me wanting more! (Well, sorta... Even when I skim through it again.) Anyway, as you know, I loved it!!
