- The Test
- The wet street mirrored the neon and the dark equally, impassively. At my feet, another life. I swallowed, knelt, felt her faltering pulse. I caressed her cheek. A caress like the angel of death. My throat tightened: Why do I stay? As if in response, the dying girl whispered, "Hold me."
- "At which price such power?" asked Siehchang. And again: "At what price such knowledge?"
- I was silent. How could I respond?
- "Indeed," he said, "who can answer fully to destiny's price?"
- — Kiki Siehchang, Verbena Mater, from The Dialogues of Siehchang and Ortega
