dictum puellae

"I don’t know," was [Numair’s] quiet reply; "I was very different then. And you know what the wise men say—’Only birds can return to old nests.’" He shook his head, and smiled down at her, white teeth flashing against his swarthy face. "Mithros bless. You look very pretty."

Kitten chortled while Daine blushed. “You think so really?” she asked, feeling shy. “I know I don’t hold a candle to Alanna, or the queen—”

He held up a hand. “That isn’t strictly accurate. The Lioness is one of my dearest friends, but she is not an exemplar of female beauty. Years and experience have given her charm, and her eyes are extraordinary, but she is not beautiful. Queen Thayet is astoundingly attractive, it’s true, but you have your own—something.” He scrutinized her as she giggled. “You should wear blue more often. It brings out matching shades in your eyes.”

Emperor Mage, Tamora Pierce
