“I’m Quin . . . Quin Whoreson the Half-Brave of Places-I-Hope-to-Forget.” “Quite a title, brother.” Bernulf nodded knowingly. “I thought I recognized you. I’m from Places-I-Hope-to-Forget myself.” “Which street?” He hesitated, his smile dying. “The butchers’ district.” His expression was somber but peaceful; his voice, little more than a whisper. “When I was your age–not so long ago–I was always in my cups, jesting with a man one moment and ready to split his skull the next . . . I killed a man in Bruges.”
