Okal Rel science fiction books - Horth learns about jealousy

Writer-daughter Jennifer Lott's 2013 Xmas gift to Lynda Williams was an Okal Rel quote of the day stack for 2014, featuring intriguing snapshots of the ORU adventure from all titles in the series: Saga, Legacies and online.

From saga novel Unholy Science by Lynda Williams.

"How does it feel?" Horth demanded. "To be jealous?"

Oh, Gods! thought Ilse, drawing a deep breath. "Well," she said, schooling herself to be honest. "It makes me dislike Imsha Ka, which is wrong of me. So I feel bad about myself. It makes me feel as if every other woman who sleeps with you is stealing something from me and I feel inadequate because I cannot be enough to satisfy you. So I feel diminished. I am vulnerable to the taunts of women like Alivda. So I feel foolish. I have strong feelings for you. They urge me to make you part of my life and Isty's as he grows up. But I know this isn't possible, so I am sad. I cannot give you up, Horth. No more than I could give up Isty now that I have held him in my arms. But my instincts insist anything less than marriage, or at least the trust and permanency marriage implies, is futile and humiliating. So I feel ashamed of my weakness for wanting you. All this is what it means to be jealous."
