Should you still feel inspired.

Even in daylight this is Montparnasse’s city, and though he squints against the sun, it suits him. People are different in these hours; they move more slowly, less cautiously, and no one fears Montparnasse in the light, which makes his work easier. When not at that work he simply watches, basking for hours in the warmth and appreciative glances thrown him. Only when he hears the chattering sparrow’s call Feuilly uses to alert Montparnasse to his approach does Montparnasse look away, exchanging the world in its entirety for the one part of it that never changes, in darkness or light.
