The Legend of Holly Claus (Quotes)

Herrikhan smiled, keeping his lips closed.  The handsome eyes flicked downward, and his tattered  robe appeared to melt away, revealing the sober, well-cut jacket and waistcoat of a wealthy New Yorker of the 1890's.  Upon his watch fob, the emblems of several distinguished clubs hung unobtrusively.  He wore a handkerchief in his pocket and his discreet silken tie lay on the snowy linen of his shirt.  He rattled his penknife in his trouser pockets and took a few steps in the swinging stride of a man of affairs, roaches cracking beneath his shining shoes.  He turned back to the mirror with a flourish.  He bowed.  He reached out a hand, and a black bowler appeared between his fingers.  He placed it upon his head only to sweep it off.  "Delighted to make your acquaintance, Miss Claus."
