Pygmalion   Unusual? I agree. I understand
            her story brought you here. No doubt you've heard
            how Aphrodite saw my statue then
            returned with gifts, yes, six: five senses and
            that last and special blessing, speech. She tends -
            - but that's unfair, we'll let it pass - she may
            have had enough of silence - days 
            no, soundless years that only ended when
            the Goddess breathed her into speaking. She
            is catching up though, quickly too. But please
            sit down, that bench, some wine? She'll be nearby
            talking down a friend or two. Would you
            excuse me now? I must get on. I try
            to make the most of quiet times, they're rare
            enough. You'll not wait long I promise. She'll
            be back, you mark my words - and soon.
