[7/10] the bloody chamber & other stories (part ii of ii) by angela carter

"Every wolf in the world now howled a prothalamion outside the window as she freely gave the kiss she owed him. What big teeth you have! She saw how his jaw began to slaver and the room was full of the clamor of the forest’s Liebestod, but the wise child never flinched, even when he answered: All the better to eat you with.
The girl burst out laughing; she knew she was nobody’s meat.”

"When I am lonely for boys it’s their bodies I miss. I study their hands lifting the cigarettes in the darkness of the movie theaters, the slope of a shoulder, the angle of a hip. Looking at them sideways, I examine them in different lights. My love for them is visual: that is the part of them I would like to possess. Don’t move, I think. Stay like that, let me have that."
Margaret Atwood, Cat’s Eye (via elucipher)
