Quotes about Alayaya

Alayaya was a whore, true enough, but a sweeter, braver, more innocent girl he had seldom met.

—Tyrion's thoughts

They tied her to a post in the yard and scourged her, then shoved her out the gate naked and bloody.[3]

At Chataya's I bedded the black-skinned girl. Alayaya, I believe she is called. Exquisite, despite the stripes on her back.[8]
