Goblin Market Drugs and Alcohol Quotes
How we cite our quotes: (line)
One longing for the night (214)
Laura can't wait for her second taste of goblin fruit. She's like an addict: she can't focus on anything but where her next fix is going to come from.
Then sat up in a passionate yearning,
And gnashed her teeth for baulked desire, and wept
As if her heart would break. (266-268)
Laura seems to be showing signs of physical addiction. We see that she is actually in pain here.
