    Pretty sure I live on an island off the coast of Meaningless. It’s hopelessly overcrowded and was already sinking before sea levels started to rise. Nobody bothered naming it. At least the ocean is warm and the sea breeze is cool.

    Erin speaks for me. Or close. I am surrounded by a sea of Meaningless but always within reach of islands of Important.

    Jack is now Erin aide… a life between paradise and hell just begun for him! No one at The Cormoran knows about Erin and the fact that she still was thinking about The Boy too much for wanting to have a boyfriend.

    Who tied Erin’s wrists together?

    Erin has the concept of work defined precisely. I wanted to retire since I was 16. I discovered that it was really what I wanted to do when I grew up. I feel a bit smug about it.

    To be fair, Ken, Erin has actually been married.

    Briefly. Then the marriage was annulled and her erstwhile groom was eaten by a demon.

    Her next gentleman will be shot, and then bisected by an eldritch computer.

    There was also another love interest in there who got tangled up in a column of extradimensional effluvia and smeared across the space-time continuum.

    Really, it’s better for everyone if Erin stays single.
