Quote #10

He stared at the two children seated in the center of the open glade eating a little picnic lunch. (264)

Finally! A scene of total satisfaction. Picnics are really the best thing in the world. The fact that it's a "little" picnic just makes it that much more adorable. Too bad these children had to kill their parents to get this satisfaction. (Although, for a picnic, we'd do almost anything, too.)
