Quotes / The Reliable One

And then there is Quincy Brown's story. A peasant who slew a dragon, and yet he has never been one who wanted to play the hero. He had no desire to be the eldest, to be the responsible one. He had no desire to be the one to care for his brothers when his father was absent, or his mother indisposed with alcohol. He sowed and he sewed, he reaped and he cooked, he cleaned up messes that were not his and all rather begrudgingly. Quincy Brown is 27 years old.
