Bonza took out a cigarette and lit it, blowing smoke from his nostrils like a hero in an old western before aiming the cigarette Lynea's way.

He could not have believed that such a slight girl could become such a burden.

It may sound weird but it makes sense in context.

Most have tried to change their speech in one way or another and would be sincerely complimented to be told that they do not sound like New Yorkers

@voicedotter: I believe you mean "Death hummed to himself and stowed the glass away in whatever mysterious recess it had occupied."

The solution [imath]\theta=e^{\mathbf{\Omega}\lambda}[/imath] corresponds to the choice [imath]c=\mathbf{I}[/imath].
