Alberta: “I’m going to be blunt with you. I’m not going to give you lectures or demand any explanations. Honestly, since you aren’t my student anymore, I don’t have the right to ask or tell you anything.”
Rose: “You can lecture. I’ve always respected you and want to hear what you have to say.”
Alberta: “All right, here it is. You screwed up.”
Rose: “Wow. You weren’t kidding about bluntness.”

Alberta: “And if they do give us any trouble . . . I’ve been made to understand that you have a benefactor who can pull a few favors to smooth everything over.”
Rose: “A benefactor. A benefactor who wears flashy scarves and gold jewelry?”
Alberta: “No one I know. Don’t even know his name—only that he’ll threaten to withhold a considerable donation to the school if you aren’t let back in. If you want in.”
Yeah. Deals and blackmail. I was pretty sure I knew who my benefactor was.

Alberta: "Rose?"
Rose: "Yeah?"
Alberta: Alberta's face was gentle... something I'd never seen before."I'm sorry. Sorry for everything that happened. And that none of us could do anything about it."
Rose: I saw in her eyes then that she knew about Dimitri and me. I wasn't sure how. Maybe she'd heard about it after the battle;maybe she'd guessed beforehand. Regardless, there was no chastisemnet in her face,only sincere sorrow and empathy. I gave a brief nod of acknowledgment and went outside.
