“Katri was silent. When her silence continued, Anna understood that she’d said something important. She repeated it. ‘One for me and one for you. We’ll share. We’ll share Central Europe.’ It sounded adventurous. She said it again. Katri drew a deep breath and said, with a certain chill, that it was out of the question. But if Anna had no objection, they could assign half the royalty from United Rubber to Mats.‘Do so,’ said Anna. ‘That’s fine. And not another word about United Rubber, ever.’Katri opened the black notebook and, in her own sweeping hand, wrote, ‘Mats 1%’.‘Is there anything else of importance ?’‘No, Anna,’ Katri said. ‘We’ve done what matters most.’”— from The True Deceiver by Tove Jansson
