Name of the Wind Excerpt to Realize

Take time to realize,
That your warmth is.
Crashing down on in.
Take time to realize,
That I am on your side
Didn't I, Didn't I tell you.

But I can't spell it out for you,
No it's never gonna be that simple
No I can't spell it out for you

Realize, Colbie Calliat


The Name of the Wind (Kingkiller Chronicles, Day 1)I stepped over to her and knocked it out of her hand. Her eyes flashed angrily at me. "Spit it out!" I snapped. "Now! It's poison!"

Her expression went from angry to terrified in a flash. She opened her mouth and let the wad of dark stuff fall to the ground. Then she spat, her saliva thick and black.....

I reached into the fire pit, pushing my hand deep into the ashes until I found the unburned coals underneath. I brought up a handful of unburned charcoal. I shook my hand, scattering most of the ashes away, then thrust the handful of black coals at her. "Eat this," I said.

She looked at me blankly.

"Do it!" I shook the handful of coals at her. "If you don't chew this up and swallow it, I'll knock you out and force it down your throat!"


"Before. You said you'd knock me down and make me eat coals. You'd never hit me." She turned her head a little. "You wouldn't, would you? Not even if it was for my own good?"

I felt a chill go through me. "What do you mean?"

There was a long pause, and I was beginning to think she'd fallen asleep when she spoke up again. " I didn't tell you everything. I know Ash didn't die at the farm. When I was heading toward the fire he found me. He came back and said that everyone was dead. He said that people would be suspicious if I was the only one who survived..."

I felt a hard, dark anger rise up in me. I knew what came next...

My stomach churned acid. "A man who could do that to you--he's not worth your time. Not one moment of it. It's not a matter of him being only half a loaf. He's rotten through. You deserve better."


Take time to realize
Oh-oh I'm on your side
didn't I, didn't I tell you.
Take time to realize
This all can pass you by.. Didn't I tell you

But I can't spell it out for you,
no its never gonna be that simple
no I can't spell it out for you.

If you just realized what I just realized
then we'd be perfect for each other
then we'd never find another
Just realized what I just realized
we'd never have to wonder if
we missed out on each other now.

More on the book 'Name of the Wind' by Patrick Rothfuss next week. I really loved this book. I loved the characters, I loved the romance, I loved the flow of the story. I'm sure you will too.

Found you through the blog hop! Name of the Wind is a fantastic book, isn't it? Can't believe Wise Man's Fear is still 4 months away.
