"That pleases me . . . more than I can say. Cordelia sends her love and her best hopes. If I saw you, I was to remind you, ah—I must get the phrase exact, it was one of her Betan cracks—'Home is where, when you have to go there, they have to take you in.' "


This is the speaker's entire line.
Here . . . is really in the text, the speaker apparently hesitated.

Book ? The Vor Game
Who is speaking ? Aral Vorkosigan
To whom ? Elena Bothari-Jesek

"Come on, then." He turned jerkily, and made for the stairs to the first floor, rage rigid in his backbone.

YYY glared back at XXX, and XXX brushed the glare away with an equally savage gesture, as if striking down a sword thrust. "I'm going with you."

"Going to see what ZZZ caught." XXX followed him through the door. "You stay here," he ordered.
"No."

An easy one (I hope !)
James, remember the 5 days "no ping-pong" rule. It applies to this first posting, any hint and/or longer form of the quote I might have to give would not "refresh" the 5 days


"Shopping.... Want to see what I bought?"


Book ?
Who is speaking ?
To whom in particular ?


Bonus : 1/2 point for designating, not necessarily by name, some other person present, except the obvious answer.

Does this question have the same answers as the previous?

Book? Barrayar
Speaker? Cordelia
To Whom? Aral

Bonus: Ptior Vorkosigan (spelling?)

What did she buy?

Well, it is not at all the same scene !
And the answer I expected was really
To whom : Piotr
because she is answering his direct question "Good God, woman, where have you been?"

Had you not mentioned him for the bonus, I would not have granted you the next question.

But since you mentioned both Aral (obviously present, and thus not the expected answer to the bonus) and Piotr, I give you the next question, but only one point.

The 1/2 point of the bonus is for some other person also present, not as obviously as Aral.

Time seemed to stretch itself, as he plummeted toward the sand, especially to allow him the full sick savor of his mistake.


Book
Him
What was the mistake?
