“p. 114 Situation set up: Gaby doesn’t get the boy-girl thing, and Luther explains: “Everyone has…nuances—a way of walking or talking, emoting, that draws other people or repels them. Every so often, you run into the right people—or maybe in your case, just the right person—who reacts to what you have. Whatever it is. Scent. Attitude. Expression.” He had to be kidding. “In your case, I think it’s all three. Your attitude definitely does it for me.” “Does it for you?” “Stirs me. Turns me on.” Expression bordering on helpless, he shook his head. “At times, I swear, you wreck me. I can’t explain it. But I like it.” “Pervert.” He laughed. “Yeah, maybe.” “All that makes you sound like a damn masochist.” “Doesn’t it, though?” “Everything you said sounds like a bunch of hooey to me.” “Yeah, well, it sort of did to me, too. I guess it’s not something that’s easy to explain or decipher.”
“Sure. I know cancer.”
Brows coming together, Luther frowned at her. “You say that like it’s a living thing, an acquaintance you’ve made.”
“And you think it isn’t? Trust me, cancer is very alive—alive enough to massacre without mercy.[…] when you break it all down, cancer is nothing more than rebel cells. Real ass-kickers with the ability to populate out of control.”
Gaby’s voice went low and cold. “Normal cells have a life span. The old die off to make room for the new. But cancer isn’t normal. It gets stronger, jacking up into great ranks, invading and wreaking havoc. Cancer’s a son of a bitch, robbing from normal tissue until body parts, and eventually the body, dies from deprivation.”
[…] Memories had her breathing hard and fast even as they dropped her voice to near nonexistence. “Cancer rots organs and bores holes in the brain until disillusionment takes over. Where a good soul used to be, cancer leaves behind a shell.”
