The silence that comes from books and surrounds us is a silence full of sound.
— Rodrigo Fresan (Kensington Gardens)
Will had never been quick to anger, but once he got there, he held on to it like a miser with a pot of gold. He didn’t throw things or use his fists. He didn’t rage or even raise his voice. Actually, the opposite happened. He went quiet - completely silent. It was as if his vocal chords were paralyzed. He kept it all on the inside because, in his vast experience with angry people, Will knew that letting it out meant that someone could end up very badly hurt.
